The snow-covered Cotopaxi volcano is the highest active volcano in the world, and an overnight climb is one of the many tours available in Ecuador.

"Hi! Since there's only 1 space available on this tour I'm assuming there will be people joining us. We're doing a Galapagos tour before meeting you and after will have 3 days to spend in Quito. Ideas? Mindo anyone?
