    The reserve's giant, the trail that skirts the lagoon has 14 km with the course which lasts 5 hours of walking. There is the possibility to make smaller trails. The place is beautiful, the pond is amazing and has a wonderful legend about volcanoes that fall in love. Perfect for those who enjoy hiking trails, breath-taking views. It's worth it!

Where to stay in Quito

Most visitors to Quito choose to stay in La Mariscal, a touristy neighborhood filled with guesthouses, restaurants, and bars. This area is also the town's nightlife hub, drawing a young crowd of revelers from around the world. If you prefer less noise, look for a bed in La Foresta, a quieter and less crowded alternative just a few blocks away from popular entertainment opportunities. For upscale sleeping options head to the old town, boasting many of Quito's top hotels in some of its prettiest buildings.
