A South American City Without Zika Threat but With Cheap Airfare…No Mosquitos in Quito

Quito, Ecuador, is located right on the equator, so you might be concerned that it would be a mosquito infested city. But its high elevation means it isn’t…in fact, you’d better take some long sleeves.

Dan’s Deals has uncovered a $319 LAX-Quito round-trip fare on AeroMexico. It’s valid in April and May.



Actually, I’m not certain if there are no mosquitoes in Quito, but I didn’t encounter any there during my visit 2 years ago. So, I think it’s probably a Zika-free zone.
