Why do you want to stay at a lower altitude? If you have an altitude problem it will (I think) be worse on a day trip than it would be if you stayed at altitude and dealt with it. Quito is in a mountain valley - almost everything near there is higher and not lower

I know that we went from Quito to Guayaquil by a short plane flight, and Guayaquil is at sea level.
