The Ilinizas Volcanoes are located about 60 km (37 miles) southwest of Quito. Ilinizas is the perfect place to get acclimated to the altitude and scope out excellent views of the central valleys and neighboring peaks. With clear skies, you will even have a great view from the summit on the currently erupting Cotopaxi Volcano. Iliniza South peak is the sixth highest elevation in Ecuador with 5,250 m (17,224 ft), while Iliniza North is the eighth highest one (5,125 m / 16,814 ft).

According to geologists, there was one volcano that exploded and collapsed, transforming this huge volcano into two peaks separated by a saddle about 1 km (0.6 mile) long. In fact, while climbing either one, you will observe at the bottom of the old caldera the remaining green-blue lake.

Whether you are preparing for a bigger climb or just want to challenge yourself with the reward of epic views at the summit, this trip offers an opportunity that you won’t forget. With a 5-hour hike to reach the summit of the north peak in one day, you will have plenty of time to take in the great sights and experience the Andes.

The trip was so much more than I was expecting. There were a lot of activities that I wasn’t even aware that we were going to have. It was lots of fun! I was a solo traveler, and everyone on the trip were great people to spend time with. I enjoyed all of our accommodations except one, but even with that, the place was in a good location. This was definitely 5 Stars from me!

Amazing time in the amazone at Waita! With Carlos we had a very passionate, kind and knowledgable guide who showed us so much of the beauty the rainforest had to offer. He was also a top birder, and managed to help us hear and see many bird species. The accomodation was basic and had all you needed for a little home in the jungle. The local staff was kind and welcoming, proud to accomodate you in their home. The food was really really tasty and plentyfull, all you need after a day in the jungle. Really happy with the community based approach of lodge. It differs from other lodges by being owned and ran by families in cuyabeno, so the money spend here doesn't go to quito or abroad, but support 's the Livelyhoods of local families, benefitting conservation efforts.

Everything was Great, the Lodge, our Guide Carlos, Benito and all the other guys from our Lodge. We had 5 amazing days in the jungle. We are happy that we were part of this nice and lovely project. The food was so delicious, we didn't expect that good meals in the jungle.

We chose Waita lodge because in wasn't on the lagoon with all the other lodges so felt we would have the river to ourselves. This proved correct as we saw only one other boat from another operator the whole time we were there. The Place was comfy and well organised with a good program of activities, including boat rides, jungle walks, paddleboarding and piranha fishing. We saw lots of wildlife - Birds, Monkeys, Insects and pink dolphins on very trip on the river. Our guide Diego was very good - especially with insects and he made the whole time very enjoyable. We visited Ecuador during the recent emergency situation which caused a few tweaks to our original itinerary - Ecuatraveling and Estaban communicated very well and the whole thing went very smoothly - thanks everyone
