On our early morning drive to the Quito airport we were delighted to be given a wonderfully clear view of Cotopaxi (volcano). It was a beautiful morning for a flight to Guayaquil.

The reserve allows to learn about the flora and fauna in it. The Visitor Center provides quality material. It is not mandatory to take a reserve guide. If you decide to climb to the point of refugee house you can get a breath of breath and a wonderful view. The climb from this point will only be done through a reserve guide

The views were amazing as we approached the volcano. The coach went into the carpark and if you wanted to walk up to the lodge it was a further couple of hundred metres. It was very windy and of course the altitude poses a problem, especially for people like me with dodgy heart rhythms. People were getting headaches before they even started. I and a few others decided to stay on the coach. We were well rewarded with the appearance of a beautiful Andean Fox. He stayed for some time around the coach. We wondered if it was his usual haunt as he was obviously looking for food.

We enjoyed driving through the park to see the volcano. It was cloudy so we couldn't see the top but was worth the visit.

When in Ecuador it is very difficult to miss this impressive volcano. But given the weather conditions get there early in the day to enjoy with more certainty the majestic view of the volcano. Clouds close in soon and one may miss the full view.
