John and I trained for this hike by doing some very steep trails near our home, but we live at 1400 feet and there was no way to replicate the elevation! So breathing on Cotopaxi was a real challenge. My trick is when I get...More
Muy chévere - had a great view of the volcano on a clear day. Our guide said it’s not very common to have such a clear day for this kind of view, but even on a cloudier day, it’d still be an impressive sight!
Amazing landscapes on and surrounding Cotopaxi. We had a guide (hired from the main entrance to the park) who told us a little about the trees and the area. Although she spoke little english so much of it was lost in translation sadly.

It is best to go in the morning as soon as it opens at 8.00 to...More
