This popular full-day tour highlights one of Ecuador's natural wonders, as well as a typical market that sells handicrafts and items made by local artisans. The cultural adventure begins with a visit to Saquisilli (Thursdays) or Pujilli (sunday) for a look at local markets. These towns are rich with culture and history, and are home to indigenous people who still create clothes and other items in traditional ways. Travelers get to experience authentic Ecuador on this part of the tour, before embarking on a scenic drive to Laguna Quilotoa.
Enjoy stunning views of the emerald lagoon that's tucked inside the volcanic crater in the Andean mountains on a two-hour walk around the crater rim. Travelers can opt to walk back from the lake or ride a mule if they're tired.
