Stay at The Secret Garden Cotopaxi and experience the charming Cotopaxi area!
The hostel is located between seven volcanoes: Corazón, Illinizas, Rumiñahui, Cotopaxi, Sincholagua, Antisana and Pasochoa, which is just behind the hostel.

Explore the Cotopaxi National Park on a horse, hike to the base camp and glacier of Cotopaxi, visit some of the other volcanoes around, or simply relax at the hostel – on the hammock, at the jacuzzi or with the llamas and our friendly dogs! It’s also a great place for acclimatisation for the higher peaks (Chimborazo, Cayambe, etc.), as the hostel is situated at 3,500m, which means you sleep high up and have many hiking options for training.

Our best seller! By far our most popular tour.
We always recommend staying 3 nights, as it is the best way to fully experience the Cotopaxi area, but this package is a good way to get a taste of it.

Free private shuttle to the hostel, departing from The Secret Garden Quito at 10am daily. If you’re coming from the South (Baños etc) we can also pick you up in Machachi at around 11am. You’ll arrive in time for a welcoming mulled wine by the fire before lunch. In the afternoon, you will join a 2-hour guided trek up through the beautiful cloud forest to some spectacular waterfalls. The hostel is surrounded by high altitude orchids and hummingbirds, and you have the option to jump into the very “refreshing” stream!

A spare day to enjoy as you wish

Take our Cotopaxi National Park tour with a trek up to the climbers refuge at 4,864m and a bit of mountain biking, go horse riding across spectacular high Andean plains, or just relax in a hammock with a good book. *Tours/Activities on this day are not included in the package deal price – see our website activities page for full details and prices.

INCLUDED -The Pasochoa trek

This extinct volcano last erupted more than 100,000 years ago, well before the last ice age ended. However, the fertile soil, remote location, and difficult access mean that it remains relatively untouched and is now home to some of the most beautiful and ancient forest in the Andes. Rated one of the best treks in Ecuador, we have our own private trail through a private ecological reserve. We trek through the primary cloud forest and across the high Paramo grasslands to the summit at 4,200m. The mountain is home to pumas, spectacled bears, Andean wolves and more. These animals are rarely seen, but we do occasionally see condors inside the crater. Approx 6 hour return trip with friendly guides, snacks and drinks, and a late lunch waiting for you back at the hostel.

Late departure on your last day

You’ll need to check out of you room by 10am, but you are welcome to stay for lunch. Most guests head off at around 3pm with one of our shuttles.
