What You Can Expect
Departing from Quito, you'll travel to the National Park of Cotopaxi and Hacienda and take in beautiful scenery of Ecuador along the way.
Then, you'll arrive at the site near the impressive active Cotopaxi volcano, which stands at a towering 19,000 feet (5,900 meters). During your stay at the national park, you'll visit the museum and stop a the Limpiopungo lagoon, from which, depending on the weather conditions, you can admire the environment and observe condor birds.
After the national park, you'll visit the San Augustin del Callo Hacienda and see the daily activities of an Andean Hacienda. Optionally, you can have lunch at the Hacienda (not included in price) before returning to Quito in the afternoon.
We drove thru some beautiful country in addition to the national park. I especially enjoyed the train ride from Quito to the park. Afterwards we had a nice, relaxing lunch with music from a local group at a beautiful hacienda.
The weather was not cooperating, so we didn't see Cotopaxi, but later we were taken to very colorful village market and this was a highlight of the tour.
We had a great lunch lunch in hacienda. Driving in Ecuador seems very dangerous, but thanks good driver we survived and got back in one piece to the hotel.
