“La Ronda is a small neighborhood tucked into the historic center of Quito. The main street is pedestrian-only and is lined with restaurants and shops catering to tourists. Mornings are very quiet in this neighborhood and most places don’t open for business until later in the day. Afternoons make a great time to explore the artisan shops and learn about traditional Quiteño culture, from the popular children’s toy, un trompo, to handmade ice cream, helado de paila. Learn about making chocolate, how to craft intricate inlaid wooden chessboards and treasure boxes, how to work iron wrought metal, and more.”
