It is located east of Quito, in the Tumbaco Valley northwest of Ilaló volcano, in the valley of the San Pedro River, a tributary of the Guayllabamba River, at an elevation of approximately 2200 m (7200 ft) above sea level. Because it is at a lower altitude than Quito, it has a warmer climate (about 2 to 5 degrees Celsius higher on average).In recent years, the parish has become a commuter town of Quito as a significant number of middle-upper and higher class families move from the city to live a more suburban lifestyle. This shift in population has attracted money to the area that boosted the local economy.In 2017 there has been a lot of commercial activity centered of restaurants ranging from food trucks to gourmet-style places.Examples of architecture drawing from the area's rural beginnings include the Iglesia de Cumbayá in the Main Square and the Iglesia de Miravalle built in 1987. Modern examples include the Rancho San Francisco complex, La Esquina, Centro Plaza, and Scala and Villa Cumbayá shopping centers, among new office blocks.
