We spent a lot of time in parks while in Quito. The city is dotted with them, the kids enjoyed exploring, running and playing, and it was a good way to burn off the energy.
Also, Ecuadorians really value family, so all the parks had facilities for kids, including this fun one at Parque Metropolitano.
And how lovely was it to be able to enjoy the outdoors in December?
The seasons north of the equator are beautiful, but I must say, I sure do appreciate a life without winter and the oppressive heat and humidity of summer.
Quito has seasons, but they’re rainy season and dry season. The temperature ranges between 45 degrees (8 C) to 65 degrees (19 C) the whole year.
In my book, that’s pretty much perfect.
And leaves room for lots of sweet cousin time (and father-in-law/brother-in-law time).
