The first 2 nights will be following a stay in Otavalo, and prior to going to the Quilotoa region, and then for acclimatization hikes and hopefully summiting Cotopaxi. During our full day I would like to visit the teleferico, and the Capillo del Hombre. I was thinking that we could stay in Marsical. We will be coming from Otavalo likely in the late afternoon on a Saturday, and leaving on a Monday morning for the Quilotoa region.
The 2nd set of 2 nights will be after the mountains, prior to going home, and we will have 2 half days and 1 full day. I was thinking of staying in the historic center, and doing a free tour and visiting various museums, churches, and historic sites. We will be going from here to the airport on a Friday afternoon (flight at 6 p.m.).
Does this sound like a reasonable plan, or is there some reason to spend all 4 nights total in 1 place rather than 2 places? Any traffic issues that make staying in 1 place better than the other?
