We just loved this ecolodge, its situation in the rainforest, its private waterfalls and the very friendly welcome and food restaurant ! A great experience with José dishes ... To note also a real commitment in sustainable development. Take the time to come and appreciate this place located in a luxurious nature ... Thank you José for your friendliness !

For nature lovers this is a perfect secluded location as the accommodation is in individual bungalows up steep tracks surrounded by vegetation and birds.

This may be almost the only hotel in Cachi, and the road in is very rough, but it is an excellent place to visit. Very isolated with its own waterfall, lovely gardens, and hundreds of birds. Clean and airy rooms, with lots of nice touches. The owner and chef, Jose, is an excellent cook and puts his heart into everything...

We only had one night, sadly. Though it rained the entire time, we were still in heaven.

This is the most amazing place. Very romantic. The chef/owner Jose is a master. The food in the restaurant is very good. There is a pond below the restaurant with fish. The fish doesn't have to travel very far to your table. There is also this amazing waterfall and there is an area you can sit by it to enjoy...

Paradise about 1:45 hours from Juan Santa Maria Airport. Comfortable, secluded cabin on a hillside cloud forest. Great food at the restaurant. Best lodging and food on our trip. I recommend the trout almondine.
