This one-day cultural tour takes you to one of the most beautiful lagoons in Ecuador and South America, the amazing Laguna Quilotoa, and surrounding villages. We start our day with a visit of the local market of Saquisilí (on Thursday) or Pujili (on Sunday). Continuing our trip, we pass through the indigenous villages of the area which provide a fantastic chance to see the True Ecuador and discover the culture. When we arrive at the spectacular Laguna Quilotoa, where we hike down to the Laguna and back up again in a stunning two-hour hike tour. It is possible to hire mules for part of the trek. Paying special attention to the culture and rural life of indigenous Andean people, this trip is a wonderful opportunity to see the beauty of Ecuador in all of its forms.
