Devil's Cauldron waterfall

  • The Devil’s Cauldron waterfall is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Ecuador and South America, it has a waterfall of 80 meters high with three waterfalls that due to their force when falling form an impressive swirl of water.
    Surely its name catches your attention, this mysterious name refers to the shape of the cauldron that has been carved into the rock over time by the force of falling water.
  • At this stop you will be able to see this impressive waterfall up close and if you decide you can get wet underwater from the viewpoint, there is no access to the river since its waters are very strong, but after visiting this waterfall we are sure that you will leave recharged with positive energy .

The End of the World Swing

  • In our last stop we will visit the Tree House, also known as The Swing at the End of the World.

COTOPAXI CON DANIELA Que experiencia más Asombrosa. El Parque Nacional COTOPAXI. Con guía (Daniela) fue mágica. Espiritual. De reconocimiento y respeto a una maravilla natural. A un Pueblo diverso y sus Cosmovisiones. El Chocolate con pimienta dulce y el te de hoja de coca. Previnieron el "Soroche" y estubieron de...li..cio...sos. Daniela nuestra guía hace su labor con mucho amor... Contagia su buena vibra... Si tienen niños ella es la guía indicada 🤓🥰

A Great Experience We toured Mindo, the equator and Cotapaxi with this organization. They were to flight. Always on time. Always prepared. Very considerate (they even brought my son’s hat back and left it at the front desk). I highly recommend them!

Great day with amazing views It was a fantastic day with excellent views, we were lucky to have sunny weather which isn't always the case - prepare for anything! Adrian was a fantastic guide, knowledgeable and enthusiastic and a great help on the hike itself. I've done lots of hiking before but this was the first one at altitude, you definitely notice the difference! The best advice is to take your time with the hike, great advice that Adrian provided. I'd definitely recommend this tour if you have free time in Quito.

Lo pasamos realmente bien y tuvimos tiempo suficiente para subir al refugio de Cotopaxi y también se aseguraron de que fuéramos juntos!!! Había muy buena vibe! Nos gustó también mucho el sitio donde comimos y poder darle de comer a las Alpacas :) muy recomendado!!!!

Un viaje muy especial al Cotopaxi El tour fue muy completo e interesante, la ruta hacia el cotopaxi ofrece muchas vistas espectaculares y se consiguen excelentes fotos. La subida al cotopaxi es algo pesada pero nuestra guía Dany nos dió tips para que no fuera tan difícil y todo el tiempo nos esperaba si nos quedabamos atras, también nos contó mucha información sobre el Cotopaxi y los demás volcanes, además nos contó varias leyendas muy interesantes. Un tour muy recomendado sobre todo con Dany.

Beautiful day Enjoyable day. Tour guide arrived in time to pick us up and made sure we had everything we needed during the day. The walk into the crater was beautiful but if you're older, you'll need to take your time and watch your footing. Hiking sticks helped. Unless you are in peak condition, be sure to reserve a horse for the ride up. Even the 20 something's were breathing hard and resting a lot. I would definitely recommend this tour. Great company and very organized.

Una aventura El tour estuvo muy bien, con tiempo para adaptarse a la altura y demás. Lamentablemente el clima no ayudó ya que había mucho viento. Eso hizo que la subida al refugio fuera un poco más complicada. Igual, este hecho acrecentó el sentido de aventura (aunque no obtuve las mejores fotos del volcán). Al descenso nos encontramos con dos zorros. A la hora del almuerzo fuimos a un sitio donde uno podía alimentar a las llamas y a los patos. Muy completo todo.
