  • the light and them colors that the surround are very cute, is worth the penalty pass to see it, also us touched rain and hail, spectacular! It has a covered lookout which helps in such cases could not see birds...

  • Spectacular ecosystem, located inside the National Park Cotopaxi. Great place for bird watching and lucky rabbits. The walk around the Lake is short. From here you can climb to the Rumiñahui Volcano (with guide that if)!

  • The laguna is huge with clear waters and surrounded by a beautiful landscape (including the Cotopaxi volcano). Has an excellent trekking around for hiking or even jogging.
