It's a lovely place for families and couples to have a break of the city and to go out to this place to spend a day having lunch enclosing on the edge of the lagoon, very nice and relaxing, also you can spend a night or more over there in a very nice cabins beside the lagoon (lake)

The best food with amazing service. We try the dish "tipico otavaleno" and it was a great experience! The lodge has amazing rustic cabins with amazing view to the lake. Best option around Otavalo en San Pablo Lake

This was a little too much for my tastes and although I wouldn't return due to the price, it has a wonderful lakefront view.

We ate at the restaurant, per a recommendation from our tour guide. We had a table right by the water! It felt like you were on a boat!
