When I think of pyramids, I think of Egyptian pyramids. I definitely wasn’t thinking about llamas, amazing Andean views, and ancient calendars. When our friends told us about the pyramids of Cochasqui, we thought “cool, we’d love to see some pyramids”. But this is a...More

We went to Cochasqui along with Luis from Suviatours at the end of June, 2018. It was a great tour: the site is fascinating, and there were other highlights as well, like being swarmed by a pack of llamas and alpacas! And being a birder,...More

This hidden Gem about an hour + outside of Quito Old Town is fantastic. It is older than the Incan's. There are mounds of dirt everywhere with pyramids buried under them. There is a museum and they employ local guides. After paying have one of...More

We all know about the Incas and their civilization but this archaeological treasure is pre-Inca dating to the Caranquis in the 13th century and perhaps well before. As a tourist site this is not very sophisticated but I think that is quite OK! On a...More

This site has not been excavated or studied very much yet, but it is very interesting. The tour guide was great and the museum has a lot of artifacts that have been found on site.

Although off the beaten track (an hour from Otavalo, but en route from there to the airport), this is quite an amazing but overlooked site with over a dozen pyramids. Most are still covered, but there are some excavated and a detailed and informative tour--worth...More

Great short trip from Quito. There is room for tents or 3 bed cabins if you plan on spending a night or two. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Bring heavy jackets and firewood for making smores.

We visited as part of a conference day trip and found it very interesting, including how the locals lived hundreds and thousands of years ago, how the pyramids (not pyramids in the traditional sense of the word but ok) were built etc. interesting walking up...More

A hidden gem...this place was not very attractive from afar,, looked just like a set of mounds...it probably doesn't help either that the place is hidden and have to drive through a moderate amount to find it...it is soo interesting and left me in awe...More

Pyramids as a word would be a bit deceptive for those at Cochasqui. They were not at all pointed at the top as those in Egypt, Mexico, and other sitings. In fact the drawings and mockups made me think more in line with a tadpole,...More
