Highlights of Quilotoa Lagoon Tour

Near the Andean mountains is the Quilotoa volcano with a height of 3800 meters above sea level. It is one of the natural wonders of Ecuador. In the crater of this volcano there is a lagoon, which is why it has many minerals which cause its emerald color to constantly change. 

On the tour to Quilotoa you will be accompanied by a specialized guide and with him you will know the typical indigenous markets such as the Saquisilí market, Zumbahua and Pujilí (this depends on the day of the tour), located in areas near the volcano. In addition, you will discover the Zumbahua canyon, indigenous peoples and a community called Shalala which is known for its crafts.
