The luxurious lodges located in and around Cotopaxi National Park are some of the best in the country, and well worth the extra bucks you pay for volcano views. There are free campsites in the park at the turnoff for Laguna Limpiopungo, at Tambopaxi and near the train station in the Área Nacional de Recreación El Boliche. Day trippers can easily stay in Aloasí, El Chaupi or Latacunga.
