Quevedo is a city in the coastal region of Ecuador. Its population is usually cited between 100,000 and 150,000.

Quevedo is known for its prominent Chinese immigrant population and has even been called the "Chinatown of Ecuador". This gives it a distinct appearance and cultural feeling in relation to other Ecuadorian cities. There are many chifas (Chinese food restaurants) throughout the city of highly variable quality.

Most tourist guide books portray Quevedo very poorly, and indeed, it is not a city well-equipped for tourism. Regardless, accommodation, good food, and a unique cultural experience are all available.
