"Beautiful and relaxing location but they were struggling with the heating and very cold at night. They gave hot water bottles after dinner so we were fine in Bed!
The altitude took a bit of getting used to especially coming straight from Napo.

"A somewhat tortuous car journey, the latter 20 miles or so over cobbled roads, but well worth it to arrive at this idyllic hacienda in the heart of the countryside. Although we arrived at 2.30 pm they willingly supplied a delicious 3-course lunch. Horse riding up into the mountains on the last day was also a great experience and we just about caught sight of the snow-capped summit of Cotopaxi mountain, normally shrouded in cloud."
