It has been the perfect trip. The accommodations were really nice excluding Banos (but I think that the town has not much more to offer).Your partner volcano climbing agency has provided a really outstanding service (precise,accurate,friendly) thanks to Rami and Wil the climbing guides (a real nice guy).On our side we have been very happy to achieve a 100% success rate in our climbing activity despite despite some very nasty weather on Cotopaxi.

I had such a wonderful time in Ecuador, definitely an experience I will never forget. Im really glad I included Pasachoa at the start to help with acclimatization.. it was so beautiful as well.
