Springs at the base of the Ilinizas volcano
Only 13 kms away from Quinta Los Duendes are the springs and waterfall of Cunuyacu. This road is recommended for those with a 4x4, truck or SUV as the dirt track can get muddy and slippery during rainy season. Just ask me for details on if the weather has been rainy over the past few days.
