Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    From Guayaquil we will drive through the beautiful farming area of the lowlands where we will see the great diversity of products that are grown here. After driving for an hour, we will visit one of the local Cacao Farms where the natives will show us some very interesting features. The guide will explain the importance of this product in the local economy. We will find not only cacao beans but also bananas, coffee, passion fruit and more. 
    We continue our drive upwards to the highlands through the famous Andes where we will find Cajas National Park. This park is one of the most important protected areas in the south of Ecuador and the main source of water for the city of Cuenca. You will marvel at the beautiful scenery found in this area. You will be able to see both, Polylepis Forest and Moorland ecosystems, where we will take a short hike.
    After a full day trip we will drop you in Cuenca at your hotel or the location of your choice. Box lunch will be provided during the ride.
