2 p.m. Museo Intiñan
Neighboring the monument, this private museum proposes such games as walking on a line with your eyes closed and trying to balance an egg over a nail. The task is easier in Ecuador due to the centrifugal force, which weakens the gravitational pull in the region and results in an instant diet – an average of 2.2 pounds [1 kg] of body mass disappears. The highlights in the museum are the sundials and the dials for agricultural purposes, which show how ancestral peoples counted time.

6 p.m. La Floresta
Some of the best bars and restaurants in Quito are concentrated in this tree-lined residential neighborhood. Taking inspiration from Madrid, La Platea (Av. La Coruña E13121 y Francisco Salazar) is a hip plaza filled with food trucks. Nearby, you can end the night at the brewpub Santa Rosa (Andalucía N24-234 y Cordero), or head to BPM to listen to some electronic music (Diego de Almagro y Republica).
LATAM has direct flights to Quito departing from Guayaquil, Lima, Miami and 2 other destinations.
