Laguna Quilotoa Things to Do: 17 reviews and 66 photos
Chugchilán is perhaps the most pleasant of the small villages on the Quilotoa Loop. There aren’t any sights per se but there are lots of hills around and the lack of an itinerary is kind of nice in its own way. You can explore the central square area in about five minutes but it somehow lends itself to lingering. On weekends a few locals set up food stands and you can buy really cheap and tasty cheese empanadas. There aren’t any cafes but you can grab a beer from a local shop and just sit outside and drink it. No one will bother you and people are friendly.
Directions: Chugchilán is a one hour bus ride from Quiltoa but the bus runs only once a day and is very inconvenient. If you have the time and are fit enough, try walking which takes four to five hours.
