Cotopaxi

Because we know Ecuador like the back of our hands, we’ve saved you the leg-work and crafted ready-made itineraries that tick all the right boxes. But we’re flexible, which means that you can use our passes as the skeleton for your own personalised journey – add a few days to trek Quilotoa loop routes, climb Cotopaxi mountain, take the Devil’s Nose train, explore Otavalo marketplace, and discover the best Ecuador beaches.

With the option to hop on and hop off at any one of our stops and with handy pick up and drop off points, the Wanderbus is the stress-less, hassle-free option. Be wise, travel flexible.

  • You decide where you hop on and off.
  • You decide how long you stay in each destination.
  • You decide where to go and what to do.
  • Make sure to confirm your bus or any changes you want to make 24 hours before departure. We need to arrange the access to national parks, food with the local communities and carry out a vast logistic work.
  • Check to see which days our buses leave – see our itineraries – and our pick-up & drop-off points
  • Don’t bust a gut planning too much – travel flexible!
  • Book in advance seats fill up fast, avoid disappointment.
