Savor the Serenity of a Joyful Christmas in Quito with Old Town Quito Suites

Merging Christmas Traditions with the Andean Highlands

Welcome to Old Town Quito Suites, next to Quito Old Town where Christmas takes on a special charm by merging with the rich Andean traditions. During this time of year, Christmas in Quito is filled with festive notes that go beyond American or European Christmas styles, embracing the warmth of Andean culture and the essence of Quito. We invite you to immerse yourself in a unique Christmas experience, where every corner of our hotel in Quito is filled with the magic of the Andes.

Andean Rhythm: Christmas Carols with a “San Juanito” touch

The sound of a carol is unmistakable, no matter where in the world you hear it; the characteristic rhythm of Christmas songs is a universal mark. However, Christmas in Quito has a very distinctive feature. With a slower pace, it preserves a hint of the traditional Andean rhythm called San Juanito.

It infiltrates the traditional chords of the carol with the use of Andean instruments such as the rustic kena, the melancholic rondador, or the melodious zampoña, transforming this ensemble into an immersive Andean carol like you’ve never heard before. Giving our Christmas an authentic and local touch. In our cozy hotel in Quito, the festive sounds of this Andean tradition blend with the warmth of the season, creating a unique atmosphere that you’ll only find here.

Farm and Nature Songs: An Ancestral Touch of Christmas in Quito

Certainly, for most readers, a carol speaks of a white Christmas, snowy days, and everything related to December weather. Here in Quito, where it doesn’t snow, and most only see the snow in the distance on the peaks of the Andean mountains, it’s more common for us to associate Christmas in Quito with the representation of the Baby Jesus manger, and rural life draws us towards country customs. 

Most carols references are oriented towards animals, shepherds, and nature. Titles like “Burrito Sabanero,” “Los Peces en el Río,” “Venid Pastores,” “Arre Borriquito,” “La Marimorena” reflect Latin American life and customs from within. Christmas in Quito is lived intensely at Old Town Quito Suites, where tradition accompanies you.

Aromas and Flavors: Burning Frankincense and Anise Cookies

In our Quito travel experience, the aromatic frankincense, a customary tradition, fills the air during Christmas celebrations, complemented by the sweet perfume of anise cookies. This delightful culinary tradition, a hallmark of old town Quito lodging, adds a special touch to the holiday season. Our rustic cookies, featured in the traditional “candy bags,” capture the essence of Christmas in Quito, making your stay truly authentic.
