El Boliche
National
Recreation Area
El Boliche, located next to Cotopaxi
National Park, is known for its extensive
pine and cypress plantation spanning 200
hectares. Originally planted in 1928 on
the Romerillos estate to combat soil
erosion, these plantations have since had
adverse effects on the paramo ecosystem
and its biodiversity, challenging the
earlier reforestation concept.
El Boliche is situated in the
Pichincha region, nestled in the
heart of the Ecuadorian Andes.
This protected area covers
approximately 3,600 hectares and
is located approximately 90
kilometers northwest of Quito,
the capital of Ecuador. Its
proximity to Quito makes it an
easily accessible destination for
nature lovers and outdoor
enthusiasts.

source for local communities and
agriculture.

beauty.
Hiking:
Ideal for bird enthusiasts, with the

significance, and the numerous
activities it offers make it an
