Highly recommended. Packed with right amount of activities - hiking to the refuge and biking down on the grumpy roads, a lot of fun!

Our trip was great. Cotopaxi was amazing, even though it hailed on us while we rode the bikes down! But how many people can say they rode a mountain bike down an active volcano?! Definitely bring extra clothes as we were filthy at the end of both days! Our stay at Hostería Papagayo was very nice. It is a 200 year old house that has been restored, complete with jacuzzi and small cabanas on the property. The restaurant was decent and we had a nice bottle of malbec for only 24!
Quilotoa was phenomenal, and on the way we stopped at a great mercado in Pujili. At Quilotoa we walked down to the water about 30 minutes and rented a kayak 3 per person to go out on the water. On the way up most of our group walked it NOT an easy walk back up! but you can rent a horse to take you up for 10 each. A fantastic weekend.
