We picked up snack[s] from roadside establishments with no ill effects (not always a given for street food)... Sightseeing places: St George's - the capital... Harbour area is attractive with super mix of fancy yachts and working boats. Loads of atmosphere to soak up in the narrow streets...

2. Quito, Ecuador "Views of snow capped volcanoes from the rainforest."

Lastminute.com reviewer James shares, "De-stressing tips: Bird-watching, the best place in the world for it....Sightseeing places: Sumak Kawsay [i]n Stu is one of the most amazing experiences. Views of snow capped volcanoes from the rainforest. Teleferico is amazing for views, as is Quilotoa. Weather was good as always, though if you travel outside of Quito the time of the year will affect your opportunities. October, November is best for east Andes (Banos etc. ) as cloud cover is lowest so will have best views. If you want strong sun, winter is the best time, but if you struggle with the heat go when it is overcast around June/July... Romantic experience: On our anniversary we went on an artisanal chocolate tour, experiencing all the smells and tastes of the production of chocolate....I liked: Spending time in the wildlife."
