5 reasons to visit Quito this October
5. Being able to say that you were in the middle of the world!
Quito is the closest capital to the sun at 2,850 meters above sea level and it is also the only place where you can stand between the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere. You will be able to experience the pure energy of the "Center of the World" while walking along the Equatorial Line traced by the Geodesic Mission when they determined the point of Latitude 0°0'0''. This privileged geographical location gives Quito a wealth of virtues that are evident in its spring weather, all year round.
Expo Flor Ecuador 2022’s organizing committee will offer you the opportunity to take part in the best tours of the city and its nearby areas so you don't miss out on this, or any experience in Quito.
4. Visit the largest heritage complex in Latin America
Discover one of the largest and best preserved colonial centers in America that led to the declaration of the First Cultural Heritage of humanity. The Historic Center is not a big museum. It is dynamic and beautiful, a living place where the daily lives of its inhabitants, merchants, religious devotees, tourists, public officials and many more come together.
Expo Flor Ecuador 2022 has closed agreements with several hotels in this beautiful area, browse the listed ones and book a privileged space at the best price for this October 5th, 6th and 7th.
3. Quito cuisine
The flavors of Quito are one of the best kept secrets in the city. They deserve to be tasted by all good travelers, traditional mestizo dishes that mix the pre-Columbian and the Colonial times, have a strong Andean and Iberian influence: "locro" (warm potato soup), "fritada" (traditional pork dish), "empanadas", chili sauces, fruit juices and “paila ice cream” are just some of the classics. Your visit will not be complete without tasting the chocolate made with fine aroma cocoa, which is the best in the world, and of course, its high altitude coffee produced in Ecuador.
2. Crafts and Art
During the colony, Quito was one of the cities that most promoted religious arts and its well-known “Escuela Quiteña” produced some of the most important colonial artists in America, including the sculptors Bernardo de Legarda, Manuel Chili "Caspicara" and the painter Miguel de Santiago, works that you can discover in the many museums and churches of Quito. We have preserved that virtue until nowadays.
1. Roses and Flowers like no other
Ecuadorian roses and flowers have an advantage; they get natural light all year round, due to the country's location on the equator. Artificial lighting is not necessary in Ecuador. This good lighting condition makes their colors brighter, with high color saturation and an attractive appearance.
Ecuadorian roses are different from roses from other countries due to their flower size, larger stems, and durability. Their life is longer compared to roses from other parts of the world too. Also, Ecuador has the most valuable flowers trade shows all over the world. The 2018 Expo Flor Ecuador edition brought more than 1.600 visitors from 42 different countries. For this new edition 2022 exhibitors are looking forward to hosting all visitors and make important business.
Fun Fact: During the 91st Academy Awards in 2019, around 40,000 scarlet Red infinity roses from Ecuador graced the event.
