* Since we will ride in the mountains where the trails could be steep and where there is less oxygen lead us to put a maximum on rider weights of 200 pounds. Slight exceptions can be made on the one-day-rides.
* Important things to bring: warm and waterproof clothing, comfortable shoes (no flipflops or other type of open shoes), water, sun block, sunglasses and your passport.
* It is important that you will have current travel insurance including personal medical insurance. Please inform us of any known medical conditions you have.
* The operator reserves the right to change the itinerary without previous notice due to weather, National Park regulations or notifications and unpredictable circumstances.
**Unfortunately the National Park doesn’t allow us to take stop during the ride to the Hacienda inside the park to take pictures. If you would like to visit Limpiopungo, the Cotopaxi refugio or if you would like to stop underway to take pictures it is obligatory to rent the services of a local guide. Costs are 40 USD.
