Our experience with Cotopaxi Summit was amazing. We (my 16 yo son and I) spent a week with Fernando as our guide and did 3 acclimatization hikes and a successful Cotopaxi climb. Communication was easy, and the trip was planned perfectly. Fernando read and understood our strengths and weaknesses after the first few hikes and used that insight to guide us up the mountain. We stayed most nights at the El Chaupi hostel, and it was very comfortable, a great experience. If you have this opportunity, definitely do it! His family is lovely and the meals were delicious. Was an unforgettable experience and we truly appreciate Cotopaxi Travel and Fernando for the guidance and hospitality
