QUILOTOA – SHARED TOUR
Every Thursday and Sunday we offer a shared tour to Quilotoa.
This is the itinerary and it does not include a hotel pick up and drop off, the tour starts at Plaza Foch or at a common location in the “Old Town”. Highlights of the tour are the beautiful Quilotoa crater lagoon where you can hike down and go kayaking in the lake. Later you can hike up or let a mule carry you up. You will also visit a local market and a local family. This day tour is quite far from the regular Quito city life. You will see a lot of local indigenous people and explore the real Andean Ecuador.
