Departure: Thursday & Sunday (shared tour) / every day (private tour) Nearby the Andean Mountains there is emerald color lagoon, located inside a volcano crater with a height of 3800m named Quilotoa. Its geography allows us to go down by its surroundings from the top to its base. Quilotoa has the appearance of a caribbean island, but located in the middle of the andean region. The minerals in the water make the lagoon a spectacle of different tones: green, turquoise and blue. Let yourself be amazed by the Quilotoa lagoon.
