The Teleferico was a fun experience with partner and sister, The view was breathtaking, even though it started to rain and thunder half way through, this made the experience even more adventurous. We couldn't stop laughing our heads off!

I absolutely loved this place even though we got sick because I arrived directly from Guayaquil to the Teleferico. I think that the change of weather got me and the family sick but it was an amazing experience! The views were breath taking!!!
