Bumping along the spectacular dirt roads of the Quilotoa loop and hiking between the area’s Andean villages is one of Ecuador’s
most exhilarating adventures. Transportation is tricky but the rewards
are abundant: highland markets, the breathtaking crater lake of Laguna
Quilotoa, splendid hikes and traditional highland villages. Most of the
villages along the loop have only basic accommodations, but you can base
yourself in Chugchilán, which has good lodging options for all wallet
sizes. (Tigua is another option.) One of the best parts of the loop is
the fact that you’ll have many chances, especially in Quilotoa, to
interact with indigenous folks. They can seem somewhat withdrawn at
first, but are friendly and talkative once the ice is broken, especially
if you speak some Spanish or – even better – Quichua.
Transportation is infrequent, and you may have to
walk for long distances or wait for hours, so always carry warm clothes,
a water bottle, some snacks and maybe even a sleeping bag.
The loop is explained heading clockwise from Latacunga, although you can travel in reverse with no problems.
