Built from local and recycled materials, with thick adobe walls, Chilcabamba Eco lodge is traditional and charming. A stay here is basic, rooms are very simple and the facilities are rustic, but the views of Cotopaxi Volcano looming over the lodge cannot be beaten. Each of the 10 simple en-suite rooms are rustic, warm and come equipped with wood burning stoves and thick blankets.

This is a place for those who love the great outdoors and want to be active, with opportunities to explore the surrounding area on foot, bike or horse. Explore waterfalls, horse-ride with a local chagra (Ecuador cowboy) and mix with local communities, where you can learn to farm and understand the local way of life. With its warm hospitality and attentive-friendly service, Chilcabamba Eco lodge serves as the perfect home-from-home after a days' exploring. Guests eat together in the cosy restaurant, where hearty dishes are served and everyone swaps stories about the days adventures experienced.
