    Stop At: Laguna Quilotoa, Laguna de Quilotoa, 070701 Ecuador

    When the Quilotoa volcano last erupted in 1280, it left behind a gaping caldera 3 kilometers (1.8 miles) across, which is now filled with brilliant turquoise water. The word “quilotoa” comes from the local Quechua language, a group native to the central Andes region.
