Chilcabamba Ecolodge

Quito & the Northern Andes

Rating: Mid-range    

Chilcabamba Ecolodge overview

The views from Chilcabamba Ecolodge are dominated by the impressive snow-capped volcano of Cotopaxi, the second highest active volcano in the world. This is a destination for lovers of the great outdoors, with opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, horse riding and bird watching, plus the chance to go climbing in Cotopaxi National Park. While at Chilcabamba you can also visit local communities to learn about daily life in the Andean Highlands. 

Rooms are rustic in style with ceiling beams, tiled floors and wooden furniture, as befits a mountain lodge. All have an en-suite bathroom with running hot and cold water, and the wood-burning stove makes the room especially cosy on cool evening and mornings. Large windows let you admire the alpine views from the privacy of your room. There are some suites which are slightly larger with an indoor sittong area.

There is an open plan lounge-restaurant in the main lodge, which, like the chalets, is largely built of wood, and has hand embroidered cushions and colurful rugs which givie it a homely feel. You can enjoy local specialities and international dishes in the restaurant. The food is wholesome and tasty, and much appreciated after spending time outdoors.
