Eating

Most lodges have good restaurants serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Within the park itself, Tambopaxi serves food all day in its cozy dining room with spectacular views of Cotopaxi, and there's a small cafe at the park's visitor center. The Refugio will reward your ascent with hot chocolate, herbal tea, and empanadas. The nearest towns for picking up supplies are Machachi to the north and Lasso near the southern entrance.
