This is a 2 day short tour from Quito to Cotopaxi National Park and the Quilotoa Lagoon. The Cotopaxi Volcano is one of the highest active volcanoes in the world and a truly majestic sight. This tour will give you the chance to explore the incredible Cotopaxi National Park and it’s astonishing view. The second day, you will travel a couple more hours to visit the Quilotoa Lagoon, an unbelievable turquoise-colored lake located in the caldera of an active volcano. Lake Quilotoa is a place that must be seen to be believed! This short tour to Cotopaxi and Quilotoa makes for a great 2-day escape from Quito.

We will be taking a short break at the end of December for Christmas and New Year. We do this to give our bus drivers and guides time to spend with their families during these special holidays. As a business, we know this may disappoint some travelers, but we care about our employees the same way we care about our passengers and want to give them a well-deserved rest.
NO BUS ON: 24, 24 & 31 DEC & 1 JAN
IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure you check the bus timetables for each pass as not all routes have daily departures.
Biggest public holidays of the year. Due to high demand, we will not be able to assist with room upgrades during this period.

On this tour, you spend 1 night in Cotopaxi. You are free to stay anywhere you wish, giving you total flexibility for your tour.
However, when booking this tour, you CAN add on accommodation through our local hostel/hotel partners, from just $10 per person depending on the type of hotel and room (full list of options below)
Note that these are exclusive prices for Hop passengers, and better than those offered through platforms such as booking.com or even directly with the hotel.
IMPORTANT: Accommodation reservations are subject to confirmation. Should your room type not be available, we will notify you within 48hours to offer alternatives. (For last minute bookers this can be coordinated directly with your onboard guide.)

As well as an unbeatable safety record, Ecuador Hop is also famous for its punctuality and comfort. In South America, where things often run later than scheduled, we are very proud to say we achieve a 98.5% on-time arrival for each trip.
If comparing Ecuador Hop to other bus companies, make sure you check their safety record, past accidents, as well as their Tripadvisor page (if they even bother to have one) as often you will find there is a reason why some bus companies have “cheaper” prices than Ecuador Hop.
