Safety Quito?


Hi all,

In October me and my girlfriend will be moving to Quito. In May we will vistt Quito to absolutely be sure we like the city. The one thing that really bothers me is that I find so many warnings about the dangers of Quito. Is Quito really that unsafe? So you can not walk on the streets after 18.00? How does everybody move around at night? By cab? I heard these are also quite dangerous....Please share me your story / vision about the safety of Quito!

And please... I know you have to be aware in every city, I just want a comparison with for example Buenos Aires.

Many thanks!
