La Mariscal is the epicenter of Quito’s tourist scene, so much so the neighborhood has become known as ‘Gringolandia.’
What Mariscal lacks in tourist attractions it makes up for in bars, restaurants, and clubs. Many visitors opt to stay in Mariscal for its wide range of accommodations and shopping and its reputation as the place to be when the sun goes down.
You’ll find a whole range of useful amenities in Mariscal, including internet cafes, banks and tour operators.
