Estadio Atahualpa & local traditions Another great perk of staying in El Hostelito is that you are really close to our local stadium called Atahualpa in memory of the grand Inca. It is a cultural thing to go to the Stadium whenever Ecuador ir playing or the local teams of Quito like Católica, El Nacional, Liga de Quito or Deportivo Quito. Matches are normally on weekends thus a lot of families go together as a local tradition. People go to watch the game but also to enjoy the traditional food and drinks of the stadium. The prices vary whether it is an Ecuador game ($30-$40) to a local league game ($10) so as a tourist we highly recommend you go to the stadium and enjoy some good soccer and try local traditions.
