You can drive across from the Cotopaxi into the region of the Ilinizas Ecological Reserve to enjoy a trek within exhuberant vegetation, waterfalls and beautiful views.

Bellavista lies within the Llanganates Ecological Reserve about an hour from the hotel. This trip takes you through typical mountain villages with the local Indians doing their farming, planting or harvesting. You get a glimpse into their way of life with amazing views of the high Andes.

BaƱos is located in a subtropical region next to the jungle and close to Tungurahua volcano which has been erupting for several years.
