Solo travel experience

I spent 4 days in Quito on my own. I was warned several times about safety but was just extra vigilant and didn’t have any issues. There were a lot of police & security in popular areas. I did a free walking tour of the city, which I enjoyed and helped orient me. I did two day tours from the city to Otavalo and Mindo. I enjoyed Mindo but wasn’t that wowed by Otavalo.

Solo travel experience

I visited Quito as a solo female, and I felt safe. I walked/rode the bus all over that city and had a lovely time. If you are not speaking Spanish it's going to create some challenges but it's not entirely impossible to navigate. I fell in love with Ecuador and long to visit again. My top advice for other solo travellers would be to use drivers/taxis that your accommodations have arranged for you, as I was advised repeatedly to not just hail a taxi on the street and be mindful of your stuff while on public transportation.
