COVID-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Drive south from Quito to the Quilotoa area and visit its famous lagoon. Along the way, you'll admire the beautiful Andean landscape and stop at the Shalala viewpoint. Next, you'll visit the community viewpoint and descend to the lagoon. Once there, you'll have free time to hike and explore the area. You'll return on a path that connects the lagoon to the community viewpoint. It's an intense walk, so if you're not in good shape, simply climb on a mule that will pack you back to the viewpoint.

After lunch, you'll also stop at a Tigua craft workshop, famous for its colorful products, and visit the Toachi's Canon.
