The food absolutely stood out. It was the best I have ever had not only in Ecuador, but anywhere in the world. The place is total peace and quiet apart from the sounds of nature.

We wanted to visit a little secluded place and this is what this place is. I booked this place with Expedia and after a very long drive with no signs anywhere whatsoever, we somehow, found this "resort". The entrance is in a very poor condition, there is construction debris and a big whole by the parking lot. When we got...

We visited Yumbo Spa from Mindo one afternoon for a bit of a pamper. It is an hour's drive away on slow roads, but we received a wonderful welcome and had a lovely lunch. It is in a lush hillside location and the pool and spa were fed by a natural spring. It was raining and cloudy so I cannot...

Maybe it is not the most luxurious, but definitely it's a great place to get away from the city and enjoy with your significant other.

“No fitness center - but, yes, plenty hiking and swiming.... No need for heavy coats. Take a ligth rain coat just in case you experience what the locals call it " El Paramo" which is a light rain. Take sneakers or hiking boots. English is spoken by the owners and some by the staff -- No problem communicating.”
