We are a family-run ecolodge located in Puembo, Pichincha, Ecuador focused on receiving foreign tourists and assisting in organizing their vacations. We grow our own produce where possible and we tend to receive birdwatchers, mountain climbers and travellers destined for the Galapagos Islands. We are recognized for providing exceptional service to our guests as can be evidenced in booking.com and trip advisor.
