Description

This one-day cultural tour will take us to one of the most beautiful lagoons in Ecuador and South America: the amazing Laguna Quilotoa, and its surrounding villages. On day trips that occur on Thursdays, we will start our day with a visit to the famous local market of Saquisilí. On Sundays, we will visit the market in Pujili instead. Continuing our trip, we will then pass through the indigenous villages of the area which provide a fantastic chance to see the true Ecuador. When we reach the spectacular Quilotoa Crater Lake, we will hike down to the Laguna and back up again in a stunning two-hour hike tour. Down there, it is possible to go kayaking. It is also possible to hire mules as part of the trek. You will have the opportunity to observe the culture and rural life of indigenous Andean people. This Quilotoa day tour is a wonderful opportunity to see the beauty of Ecuador in all of its forms.
