    It was an unplanned visit, however I took a great impression of the place. The guide very informed and with his charisma was able to keep the interested group during the two hours that lasted the walk. A great experience! The place is great for taking pictures and allows you to get to know an important part of the history of the Ecuador.

    The entrance to the Park costs (for foreigners) $3. Therein are a 90 minute guided tour of the Park and the museums included. The leadership was AVI, but not outstanding. You can watch several pyramids from the outside, as well as the great Lunar and solar calendar on one of the pyramid. The pyramid was uncovered in one place, so that you can see the design. Especially the many lamas on the grounds were funny. There is actually also a Caffetteria in addition to the Park, which was however closed with the comment 'The woman the drink sold didn't come today'... Ääähm, Yes. Arrival: Arrival without your own car is a little tedious. We came out from Quito. From there, you have two options. (1) the bus up to the Terminal Ofelia and there the bus takes to Malchingui. He drives but only once every 1.5 hours I think 7.30, 9.00, 10.30 etc. By Malchingui should you then go to the pyramids or possibly take a taxi (ca. 7km). (2) take the bus up to the Terminal Carcelen. There take off then a bus going in the direction of Otavalo and that rise at the second toll (Peaje Cochasqui). From there you must then run to the Park (7 km) or if you're lucky a driver takes one. There are apparently also jeeps, but I know not when, and how often they drive. We had to the run high from the toll around 1.5 hours to the Park

    A nice place for a day trip from Quito, the site is not large and only a small portion of the pyramids have been uncovered. THere are two tiny muesums with pottery and a breif overview of Ecuadorean history. Very knowledgable guide that gives tours (incl in the ticket). Definitely needs more attention from the national authorities to continue with excavations and research. Entrance fee $1 for ecuadoreans, $3 for foreigners. There's also a camping ground that's supposed to be nice.

    Well worth a visit, not the easiest place to get to but the effort is worth it. Excellent guided tour, stupendous views.

    Spectacular place. A wonderful view. Of course, that you must park a block from the entrance by provision of the administration. No reason we moved parking, while the cars of employees were there. The person that an arrogant and poorly educated person told us this. He guides very knowledgeable and educated
