Cotopaxi the volcano itself and the national park named after it are a must. Enjoy a hike if not a climb (when allowed) to the summit it is a moderate climb for the experienced ones. By all means take a local guide with you. If...More

Es obligatorio hacer el check in con su vehiculo en la entrada, pero no es obligatorio usar un guia. Se puede hacer un recorrido por uno mismo.
