Visit to Cotopaxi National Park
On the border of the province of Pichincha, there is the Cotopaxi National Park, an ecological reserve that combines the landscape of the Andean moorland, volcanic soil and the lagoon that emerge from the snow-capped mountains.
Enjoy the guided tour around this glacial lake at the foot of Cotopaxi. In the lagoon we can observe different species of birds and native plants.
Interpretation Center Mariscal Sucre
All information about the Cotopaxi National Park is available at the Interpretation Center, or better known as the Park Museum. The Center has showrooms, a souvenir shop and a coffee shop. It is located inside Mariscal Sucre Station (or Control Caspi entrance).
We recommend you to recharge your energies with a coca tea.
