I did the standard day tour from Quito that included the hike/climb up Cotopaxi and the mountain bike down. Such a great experience. Gorgeous park.
Much to do but best to start at interpretation centre. Guides really essential to give context. Truly a different experience. Plan for a whole day visit. The walk up to the José Rivas Refuge is stunning and a must do. Dress warmly.
I was glad we had a driver and guide. Would be very hard to see the highlights without a guide. Roads are very rough and weather can be very cold.
Wild horses, ponds with birds and of course a snow covered volcano. Be prepared for a steep hike to the refuge at high altitude. Peak was clouded when we were there.
