Quito is the cosmopolitan center of Ecuador—and was first designated UNESCO World Heritage City. Surrounded by volcanoes, this high-altitude metropolis boasts the country''s top hotels and restaurants as well as some of the best examples of colonial architecture in South America. Quito serves as a jumping off point for the Galápagos Islands, but it also makes a good base for exploring the popular parks and other natural and cultural wonders on the mainland.
