  you'll see more walking around the Old Town
by richiecdisc

We flew directly from Miami to Quito on Lan. It took about 3.5 hours for a cost of $435.

Taxi from airport to Old Town was $7 though later we got one for $6. It cost less to the New Town as it's much, much closer.

Getting around the Old Town is best on foot. Distances are short and you see more. You could get a taxi just about anywhere for $2.

To get from the Old Town to New Town during the day we used the electric buses which are actually faster than taxis as they don't have to stop at all intersections. They are very cheap (25 cents) and entirely safe. At night it's probably best to take a taxi and that should cost about $4.
