One reason we love exploring Ecuador is because we never know what to expect and we’re always surprised by what we find!

In this video, we share several things that make the area and communities around the base of the Ilaló Volcano near Quito Ecuador so unique and unusual.

Ilalo is located about 20 minutes from the center of Quito and 10 minutes from Tumbaco Ecuador. The Quito International Airport is about 30 minutes away.
