It is undoubtedly, a fantastic place, I did the whole hiking around the crater, took us about 4 hours. It was the first time in my life I do hiking so.. for an amateur wasn't that bad and wasn't that difficult either, although there was...More
I drove (with guide) from Cotopaxi to Quilotoa. The drive was one of the most beautiful ever done, the scenery is amazing. It is quite a long drive to the crater, but never boring because of the beauty of the land. The crater lake itself...More
