Laguna Quilotoa Transportation: 7 reviews and 6 photos
Generally speaking getting around Ecuador by bus is easy compared to many other South American countries. Distances are short and buses frequent. Now, when it come to the Quilotoa Loop it's not quite as simple. Getting from Latacunga to Zumbahua is easy enough with frequent buses which take two hours and cost $2. From there to Laguna Quilotoa it's easiest to jump on the back of a jeep or pick up truck. The more people riding together the cheaper it is. Locals cram twenty people on one and hence pay less per person. We paid five dollars for the two of us. There is a bus once a day at 1:30 PM but it take twice as long and not likely you'll get a seat unless a lot of people get off in Zumbahua. From Laguna Quilotoa to Chugchilán there is one bus per day between 2-2:30 PM ($2). We hiked a beautiful trail and it took us four hours. We took a direct bus back to Latacunga from Chugchilán. It's only $4 and 3.5 hours but there's only one a day and it leaves at 4 AM. Yikes!
