Eden Amazon Lodge – is a newly-opened eco-lodge near the Napo and Tiputini Rivers in one of the most remote, wildlife-rich areas of the Ecuadorian Amazon managed by a Kichwa indigenous community who have lived in the forest for centuries. This is a rare chance to experience a completely authentic Amazonian culture that few travelers get to experience, as they struggle to maintain their ancient ways in the forest. They offer paddle canoe trips, walks through the amazing rainforest, and visits to our canopy tower. Nature walks range from short 30-minute walks, all the way to 6-hour hikes through the Amazon.

La Casa del Suizo – is a long-time classic Amazon lodge that superbly merges exhilarating experiences like raft-building, river kayaking, canopy swinging, and bird-watching with first-world comforts, all while retaining an intimate connection with nature. Discard preconceptions of rustic lodgings, for here you’ll find well-appointed rooms with views overlooking the river, modern bathrooms, and an indulgent culinary journey offered by our restaurant, providing delectable buffet spreads for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Hacienda Zuleta – Dating from the 1600s, Hacienda Zuleta lies at 9,600 feet above sea level in the spectacular Andean mountain range of Ecuador, 2 hours North of Quito. This hacienda, nature sanctuary, and working farm are the home of former Ecuadorian president, Galo Plaza Lasso. The house maintains an authenticity rarely found in modern accommodations. Guests of Hacienda Zuleta have access to our full horse barn and horseback riding trails, prime birdwatching areas, mountain bikes, Andean Condor sanctuary, endangered Spectacle bear habitat area, organic gardens, a working dairy farm, cheese factory and museum, hiking trails, local community culture and artisans and much more. Hacienda Zuleta is a member of Smart Voyager, a Smart Luxury Winner, and has been featured by Conde Nast Traveler, National Geographic Traveler, and others.

La Casa Sol – Quito and Otavalo Hostels – Charming hotels run by an even more charming Otavalan Indigenous couple. The intimate, sunny atmosphere will make even the weariest traveler feel at home, and coffee and conversation in Casa Sol’s cafe is a great way to start any day.
