Detailed Itinerary:

You will be picked up by tourist transportation and accompanied by a bilingual guide from Quito you will head south to the Hacienda Santa Rita where you will find one of the nicest attractions in the region - The Salto Canopy Tour. El Cañon del Salto Canopy is a transportation system based on harnesses and pulleys attached to an inclined cable, taking advantage of gravity. This system was used by scientists who were doing research in the forest canopy. They avoided coming down to the ground and climbing up the next tree by using this system. El Cañón del Salto Canopy Tour is a safe way to enjoy high mountain forest from the upper part. This is an environmentally low-impact adventure; it gives you with few or no climbing techniques knowledge to live an exciting experience. This lasts about 3 hours, then you will go to Hacienda El Porvenir for lunch. The afternoon is to relax or go on a walk in the surrounding of the hacienda. Dinner and lodging. -/L/D

The ride takes about 3 hours. Afterwards a delicious lunch of local dishes awaits you at the farmhouse. In the afternoon you hike to Manto Blanco waterfall. Dinner and lodging. B/L/D

After breakfast you will travel 20 minutes until Cotopaxi National Park, then you will visit the Interpretation Center where descriptions of the local flora and fauna as well as the history of the major eruptions of the world’s highest active volcano are provided.
