Description

Journey southward along the famed «Avenue of the Volcanoes» to behold Cotopaxi, the towering pinnacle of natural wonder and the highest active volcano globally, soaring at 5,897 meters (19,349 ft) above sea level. Delight in an invigorating hike at El Salitre, where, weather permitting, panoramic vistas of the majestic volcano await, offering a glimpse into the captivating flora and fauna of the National Park. Keep your eyes peeled for sightings of Andean condors, the world’s largest flying bird, as well as raptors, Andean foxes, deer, and if fortune smiles upon us, perhaps even spectacle bears and wild Ecuadorian ponies roaming freely amidst the untamed wilderness.

Indulge in a sumptuous lunch served either at a local restaurant or in classic picnic style, surrounded by the breathtaking natural splendor. As the day draws to a close, return to Quito, cherishing the memories of this unforgettable adventure.

For those seeking to immerse themselves further in Ecuador’s vibrant culture, this experience can be seamlessly combined with a visit to an Indigenous market, offering a sensory feast of fresh fruits, vegetables, delectable local cuisines, and exquisite handicrafts. Depending on the day, options include exploring the bustling markets of Latacunga (open on Tuesday and Saturday only), Pujilí (open on Wednesday and Sunday only), or Saquisilí (open on Thursday only). Experience the vibrant tapestry of Ecuadorian life as you wander through the colorful stalls, engaging with local artisans and savoring the authentic flavors of the region.

We traveled to Quito in early 2024 and had the opportunity to delve deeply into the country's culture by visiting the museum. Later, at Casa Agave, we had a truly spectacular experience.
