    On the southbound road you would be admiring the beautiful Andean landscape until we arrive at the Quilotoa area where our first stop will be at the “Shalalá” lookout.

    After we will go to the community lookout, from here we will descend towards the lagoon where we will have some free time to visit it and walk around. The ascend is a bit tough, so that it is recommended to go up on a mule for people who do not count with a good physical condition (You can rent a mule to people of community directly $10 per person aprox. After your lunch break, we will head back by an artisan workshop in Tigua, famous for its picturesque paintings.
