What an amazing experience! Cotopaxi park itself is incredible and worthy of a million photos, not to mention the volcano itself. Be prepared for windy and chilly weather (hats and gloves are much appreciated), with rain on and off, but the weather changes often. I'd recommend hiking poles, and real hiking boots are a must. Take your time, your guide will be great and patient with you, so don't feel bad if you don't make it up all the way (we didn't), take lots of pictures, and enjoy yourselves. You've earned the stop on the way back for a nice meal and a little canelazo with some homemade moonshine! Ask for Francisco as a guide, he was incredible with us.
Challenging but worth it!

We did it

Excellent guide and driver. Very encouraging and made our hike successful. We appreciated their recommendations and support for a good day. We enjoyed the lunch as well.

The guide was fun, caring, professional, and felt safe in his lead. He was knowledgeable and completely help you work through the altitude sickness. Encourages everyone in the group and ensure the safety of every member. It was fun to make it to base camp to have hot chocolate all together. The conditions was rainy windy and cold. The hiking path has sand so should wear hiking shoes with good grip, rain jacket, wear layers, hat, and sun block.
Great memories!

So fun! This was such a cool experience. It was definitely cold, so make sure you dress appropriately. Our guide was great and knowledgeable, and we even got picked up/dropped off at our front door. We stopped at a great breakfast place, stopped again to get acclimated and drink coca leaf tea, took lots of pics, made new friends, stopped at a nice lunch spot on the way home. The weather kind of turned treacherous at the end, but we survived.

Do trek to the glacier if you can
, Mar 2020
It was a great experience! The guide invited 2 locals to climb the crater with us. The summit is too high, but we did make to the 5000 metre glacier. The view of the summit and valleys were breathtaking.

Although we were not able to see the glacier cap from the base camp due to cloud cover, this was still super fun. Make sure you are a few days acclimated to Quito elevation and wear proper hiking gear (i.e. not adidas windbreaker and running shoes lol). It got super wet, cold, and windy the day I hiked.
Ecuador countryside and Cotapoxi Volcano
, Feb 2020
This tour was a great day -- a long one packed with meals at a hacienda and lots of exposure to the wonderful Ecuadorian countryside. The hike at the Cotapoxi volcano was tough due to the high altitude, but the views were incredible. We stopped at the lagoon and the native guides were wonderful. I definitely recommend this trip.
Experience of a lifetime!
, Feb 2020
Great tour guide. Very informative, knowledgeable and entertaining. He was very sensitive to all on tour, helping my husband very patiently struggle to get up the volcano. Only complaint was breakfast/lunch spot. Too far off main road. Added another 1/2 hour to trip on rocky roads
