This short tour makes for a great 3-day escape from Quito. On the way, we’ll make a stop at the Quilotoa Lagoon, an unbelievable turquoise lake in the caldera of an active volcano. Once in Baños, you’ll enjoy a number of wonderful activities set against a beautiful backdrop of waterfalls and tropical greenery.

Don't miss a chance to wander around this monument. It is so stunningly beautiful. My husband did the climb up to the observation area. Not an easy climb, so be in good health if you do it. There were little shops in the area with inexpensive souvenirs.

This is a 200m high hill overlooking the city of Quito. Popular with locals as well. Great place for panorama views of the city.

If I remember right this is one of the largest aluminum sculptures in the world. It dominates the skyline ad is set off by the surrounding volcanoes. From a distance, it is very attractive. We didn't have time to get up to see it more closely.

It was just two days prior to this site that I had had a "pretty comprehensive" view of the city from above the three towers of Basilica del Voto Nacional, but yes from the top of this hill compared to the views from the tops of those towers (still "very worthwhile" to go up
