Cayambe Coca Ecological Reserve

The “National Park of Water” spans altitudes of 600m to almost 6,000m and is an adventurer's dream.

About

The Cayambe Coca National Park reserve protects several volcanoes including Ecuador’s third-highest - Cayambe. The equator passes through Cayambe and it is said to be the only place in the world where the average temperature and latitude are both zero degrees. The park covers more than 4,000 square kilometers and hosts hundreds of species of birds, mammals and reptiles. Expect to see hummingbirds and parrots, armadillos and rabbits, and if you’re lucky, the famous Ecuadorian spectacled bear! It is known as the national park of water as water is everywhere; the fog in the air, glacier lagoons fed by the melting Cayambe ice, rivers and waterfalls and even volcanic hot springs. For a short walk and the viewpoint only, we recommend a 60 minute stop. If you intend on hiking please be sure to add sufficient time to your stop. Note: Bring comfortable walking shoes and waterproof clothing!
