Café Cultura is definitely in the right place, situated in the midst of downtown Quito, in the Mariscal sector, at the point where the modern city begins and where it all happens. What was once one of the wealthier residential sections of the city has now developed into a trendy tourist centre, where you can arrange just about any trip or adventure you may have in mind. Right outside our door you can submerse yourself in the sights, smells and sounds that make this area so rich in culture and art. We are just a few minutes away from the old city, where the World Heritage-listed colonial town of narrow Spanish streets, imposing plazas and gilded cathedrals awaits. The shops, together with a wide range of restaurants, are within strolling distance, while the Indian market just around the block saves the day for last minute bargains. Museums, theatres and art galleries abound in this part of town. You'll be busy and entertained throughout your stay with us.
