Did you know that Ecuador has over 50 volcanoes, some of which are still active? One of the most beautiful and popular volcanoes in Ecuador is the Quilotoa volcano.

Quilotoa is a stratovolcano located in the Cotopaxi province, about 120 kilometers (75 miles) southwest of Ecuador’s capital city of Quito. The Quilotoa volcano has a very unique feature – its crater is filled with water!

And not just any water, but a gorgeous turquoise lake that is simply mesmerizing. The lake is about 3 kilometers (1.86 miles) in diameter and 400 meters (1,312 feet) deep.

If you are planning a trip to Ecuador, don’t miss out on the opportunity to discover the Quilotoa volcano and its crater lake!

I am 32 year old woman from Quito and I am currently owner of two ice creams shops Bubble Waffles here in Quito and a tourist guide by profession.
