Finally more awesome activities...El Paseo Shopping, is the first Riobamba mall!
A great way to spend time with the whole family.
Eat, shop for clothes or groceries, watch a movie, you name it!
Fun for everyone.
You can spend the whole day here with your family.
This is the biggest shopping center in the Sierra region.
Its Grand Opening was July 29 2012.
As you can imagine the parking lot was packed that day!
Everyone was so desperate to find a parking space!
Of course it was understandable, this is the first mall in Riobamba and everyone was excited to spend the day there with their family. I have never seen so much traffic in Riobamba; seriously it looked like New York City during rush hour!
Fortunately my family and I go in fast without a problem. How you ask?
Simple, we took the bus to "El paseo shopping" and came back in a a taxi! It was (completely my idea) the fastest way to get in and out.
I can't believe no one thought about it. While everyone was outside in the heat fighting over a parking space my family and I were eating double bacon western cheese burgers and enjoying the air conditioning!
"El paseo shopping" is about 28,000 square meters, and cost around 20 million dollars to build!
It has 64 stores and 25 commercial islands10 restaurants (did I mention the free WiFi!) a huge groceries store, a movie theater, 3 coffee shops 3 ice cream shops.
My little sisters instantly fell in love with the new toy store (I swear I saw their pupils dilated)! This place also has a huge parking lot with capacity for 664 cars (although on the Grand Opening day that wasn't enough!). It open Monday-Sunday from 10:00am to 8:00pm.
Sometimes picking were to eat lunch is a problem for my family, I want hamburgers, my brother wants seafood, my dad wants BBQ ribs, my mom a salad and my little sisters happy meals.
Usually the ones who scream the loudest (my little sisters of course) win. That's why we love coming here everyone eats what they want and after that we go watch a movie or go grocery shopping!
