After being in Ecuador just a few short months ago, the laguna didn't wow me. However, it is a lovely trek with some breathtaking views. While it is a nature hike, it's suitable for all ages and experience levels. The only thing you want to watch out for is the return trip. The path is not circular (or wasn't when I went), and the exit is about 2 kilometers from the entrance (where you leave your car/transport). Either be sure to coordinate with your driver to pick you up at the exit, or be prepared to pay 1000-2000 pesos (about 75 cents USD) to take a shuttle back to the entrance.
