Parque La Carolina is a multiuse outdoor space full of tree-lined paths, intriguing facilities and sports fields. It is playfully known as “New York’s Central Park in Quito” due to its large green spaces in the centre of the city. Among its highlights are its botanical gardens, an exhibit centre and a reptile house. It is an ideal spot to relax and enjoy natural features in the capital city’s centre.
Meander through the park’s intricate network of pathways lined by trees. Relish the sunshine as you people-watch from a bench. Join a game of soccer or watch one of the competitive events in the sports areas. Remember to bring your own gear if you want to play tennis, volleyball or basketball on one of the courts. You will usually find locals playing the nation’s most popular sport, soccer.
Bring an array of ingredients to form a picnic to be enjoyed on the spacious flat lawn, which is also perfect for kite flying. Rent a paddleboat and take it out on the large pond on the southern side of the park.
Near to the pond you will find the Jardiín Botánco de Quito (Botanical Garden of Quito). Browse the collection of colourful plants native to the Andes Mountains and Ecuadorian Highlands. Wander through the immense orchid collection of more than 1,200 species, examine the educational studies on local ecosystems and relax at the charming café.
In the western section of the park, you will find La Carolina Vivarium, where the snakes and lizards gather. Nearby, the Ecuadorian Museum of Natural Science teaches visitors about the country’s interesting natural history and potential future.
Parque La Carolina is situated in the centre of Quito’s business district, near to restaurants, cafés and shopping centres. It opens daily to the public with no admission fee, although some of the attractions have their own entrance costs and opening times. Take a bus or walk to the park.
Good breakfast variation from day to day. Location was easy for access to restaurants, malls, gyms and Carolina Park. Helpful staff and airport transport readily available. Hotel restaurant is a quality establishment.
Bathroom clean and well appointed. Beds a bit soft for me . Hallways perfumed. Breakfast was very good although coffee was not very good. Staff was excellent.
The hotel, staff and room was excellent. My only issue was the address given for the hotel seemed incorrect when looking on Google Maps. It took me a while to find the hotel which is located beside the Dann Carlton Hotel, not beside Plaza Real.
Convenience location and excellent for business nice park fo relax and jogging
Very uncomfortable beds/mattress. Other than that everything else was great.
Everything. Incredible attention to detail. You will not be disappointed!
The property is well maintained and very clean. The bed is comfortable, the shower works well and the staff was very friendly and helpful. A good, light, cafeteria style breakfast of eggs, sliced cheese & meat, croissant, fruit, juice and hot coffee or tea is complimentary with the room.
