Kids of all ages will find lots to do at Jipiro. It is fun to just wander around and see all the things available - an artifical lake, paddleboats, swings, food stalls. Unless you like kids, caregivers, and crowds, avoid going there on the weekend.

I took the time to rent a paddle boat, $3.80 for a 1/2 hour. It's a fairly short circuit so a 1/2 hour is plenty. You can stroll through here as long as you wish but I found about an hour was fine for me....More

This was a lovely walk outside of the main downtown, away from the many other parks in Loja. It was very attractive and well kept. We did, however, find the admin uninterested when we tried to get information about an attraction we had read was...More

Free Walking Tour needs to added to your list. Great walking tour of the downtown part of the city which was over 2 hours and gives a complete history of Loja Ecuador. Kevin was a great guide and very patient.
