Day 2 (October, 21st)
Exploring Quito. After the meet up at the airport we'll check in to the hotel and have some rest. Not too much, though: there are so many places on our to-visit list! You'll get a chance to take some pics of the famous "Middle of the World" monument, stand on the equator line for a while and check out one of the highest cable cars in the world – Teleferico. Take the time to enjoy the gasp-inducing city views from Pichincha volcano viewpoints and get ready for a walk around the city – local sights are definitely worth seeing.
Day 3 (October, 22nd)
Hiking to the Cotopaxi volcano. Not only will we go up one of the highest active volcanos, but also walk down to Laguna Quilotoa, which is basically a volcano crater, and take a swim in the caldera. Our stay for the night's going to be in Banos – a town right at the foot of the Tungurahua volcano.
Day 4 (October, 23rd)
Exploring the sights around Banos. You'll get soaking wet while standing right behind the powerful Pilon del Diablo waterfall and then get a well-deserved share of relaxation in therapeutic mineral spring pools. In the evening we'll get back to Quito to have some rest before departure.

San Cristobal. After we have arrived at the island and checked in to the hotel, you'll have some free time at your disposal.

Its last eruption occurred in 2005, but we hope you won't get intimidated by this fact and will walk along the rim of the second biggest crater in the world scoring an astonishing 11 kilometers in diameter.
