About this trip

Cotopaxi National Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional Cotopaxi) is a protected area in Ecuador situated in the Cotopaxi, Napo and Pichincha Provinces, roughly 50 km south of Quito.

Due to its perfectly symmetrical cone,  covered in a thick blanket of snow and ice, the Cotopaxi is one of the  tourist highlights in Ecuador and it’s most visited and climbed volcano.  The Cotopaxi National Park is situated in a beautiful paramo plateau,  where wild horses graze on the extensive plains at the foot of the  volcano or gather to drink at the lovely Limpiopungo lagoon, which  reflects the white peaks of nearby Volcan Rumiñahui and makes a great  spot for watching waterfowl and other birds.

Walking in the National Park, you will  notice pumice, ash, stone and other volcanic debris amid the tiny  páramos plants. On a day trip to the Cotopaxi National Park it is  possible to drive as high as 4500m, then trek up a sandy scree slope to  reach the snout of the glacier at 5000m.

Prepare to hike, bike and smile.  Trekking for all ages but biking must be experienced or confident with downhill biking.

The stay at Caiman Lodge was superb- the facilities are beautiful, the food was very tasty, all the staff are super friendly and caring and the guide, Condor and Javi, the boat driver were exceptionally helpful and knowledgable. Thank you for this incredible experience!!

The trip was good, our guide was brilliant, knew his stuff and was well organised. The biking left a lot to be desired in my opinion, it was just biking down the gravel road you drive along, it’s not a proper mountain bike experience, but fine.

It was a wonderful trip. Angelica is z family run boat with 16 guests max. Maria the guide is wonderful with so much information and passion for the Galapagos. We saw and learnt so much about the animals. Snorkeling was wonderful. The food, snacks, comfort and everything about the boat was wonderful including all the helpful good humoured crew. I would recommend this cruise 100%

I had a great time. A lovely community of travelers, skillful, welcoming crew, and a naturalist that made sure we saw as much as possible. Paul Parreno's meticulous planning, attention to detail, and complete reliability is why CarpeDM maintains an excellent reputation.
