    This past weekend I approached from Quito with some friends the Quilotoa lagoon. It is an incredible 3 hours place approximately from the capital. Quilotoa is the westernmost volcano in the Ecuadorian Andes and inside its crater has formed a lagoon. Minerals of the area have been given to the surface of the water a greenish and bluish tone when it receives the impact of direct sunlight. It is also known as the route of the "cumbre" and that is accessed by bus from the town of Zumbahua. Many researchers say that this was the final resting place of the Atahualpa Inca, by what they assume is the last sacred path of the incas. I recommend that you go with clothing sports and well sheltered, then when the sun comes out you have heat, but if it is windy pass much cold. You need suitable footwear as the descent is sandy and quite slides. If you ride the lagoon kayak can be that you wet a little, so it will have to prevent wear clothes to change into or towel to dry. I recommend making the ascent by mule, as it only costs $ 10 per person and walk is quite expensive for the great slope which has the path. Visit Quilotoa is an impressive almost 4 km above sea level and experience essential to Ecuador!

    This is a beautiful, new place in a great location. The staff is lovely. We showed up unannounced, and the staff was a bit panicked trying to find vegetarian food for us; this probably wouldn't be a problem if you book in advance. And there was no hot water. Rooms are simple and spartan, but also contemporary and tasteful. Get up early to enjoy sunrise over the lake!

    Spectacular, is a place that is diverted to the road that goes to Quilotoa, are approximately 2 + km of road. The road is not in good condition but is worthwhile. You pay $2 per person since it is a private area and have to walk 5 minutes to the viewpoint. The place you can appreciate with peace of mind and better across the lagoon. Preferred.
