  • Description

    Description

    We are located in a magical piece of land, right in front of the beautiful Cotopaxi and at the beginning of the 4x4 route to Chalupas Super Volcano. We have an hacienda style house to accommodate our guests. We have been involved with the tourism industry for many years and we help tourists find transport, bicycles, guides, and the best nature spots.
    Our Sanctuary for rescued dogs started 7 years ago and we are happy to make them happy at our site.
    We have 117 doggies currently.
