When we asked expats and global nomads what they like and dislike about living in Quito, they replied...

"Expats and digital nomads living in Quito often appreciate the city's vibrant culture, friendly locals, and affordable cost of living. They also enjoy the city's stunning mountain views, colonial architecture, and easy access to outdoor activities. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the city's traffic and air pollution to be a downside. Additionally, the city's high altitude can be difficult to adjust to for some," wrote a member who made the move to Quito, Ecuador.

"My wife and I live in north Quito, near the old airport. We really like this area because we are a short drive to downtown, close to a few malls, within walking distance to a great supermarket and a public park and many nice restaurants. We both love the old historic part of the city and we're only a 15 minute drive away. We go regularly and check-in to a hotel and spend the weekend there. It's like a little mini-vacation for us," explained one expat living in Quito, Ecuador.
