Into the wild
The main draw to Central Sierra remains the volcanoes that surround the area, many of which are still active to this day. The region is a haven for travellers who enjoy hiking and climbing as there are lots of peaks to climb. Central Sierra remains influenced by the indigenous Quechua people whose culture can be witnessed in the communities that live here. Weekly markets are prevalent and sell traditional wares.
There is so much wilderness in Central Sierra that visitors could easily spend the whole time outdoors exploring and never see the same scenery twice or get bored by the incredible expanse of landscape at your disposal. Parque Nacional Cotapaxi remains the most popular place to visit. However, destinations such as Quilotoa and Salinas are not to be missed either.
