Welcome to Quito to Santo Domingo de Los Colorados


Outside of Quito the road climbs into the páramo (high-altitude Andean grasslands), with views of the extinct Volcanes Atacazo (4463m) and Corazón (4788m) to the north and south, respectively. The tortuous descent leads into the Río Toachi valley, where the air thickens and tropical plants begin sprouting up.

Careful driving on these windy roads – tailgating is a national pastime.
