We stayed 4 nights i Chilcabamba and had a great time! The rooms was super nice, the fireplace very cosy (without it it would have been cold) at night and Jose and Marina were nice hosts. We did some nice hikes around the parc and a tour to Cotopaxi which was excellent. Good value for money!

We were recommended that lodge and quite looking forward going there when we made the reservation. At arrival only an employee was there not speaking other languages than spain. He gave us straight away the most expensive room despite we wanted to see the other rooms. I thought the manager would turn up one day to sort that out, because... More

The location is wonderful. Just outside the Cotopaxi National Parc with beautiful views from the rooms and living/ dining room onto the Vulcano. Perfect for visiting the area, hiking, climbing or just relaxing. Our room had fireplace, fired every night by our great host Jose. The hacienda is cozy and nice, mountain style decorated. Jose was a very helpful organizer.... More

The place is very cosy, nicely arranged interior, authentic alpaca-ponchos wait for you on your bed and the restaurant room offers a panorama-view onto the famous volcano. There's no cell-phone reception or landline phone (not to speak of internet). The manager operates from Quito (don't expect to see him at his property) and demands a full up-front payment +12% tip...

If you wanna go up to the top of Coto Paxi, then Chilcabamba gives you the best service to make it. Also the preparation or the acclimatisation hikes are great. After the hikes the wonderful destination with no internet / phone connection gives you all you need to relax and prepare you mentionally for the next day. Loved it -... More

We stayed there at the beginning of August for 2 nights. Weather was amazing, we did the horseriding which was superb, Saqisili market and the refugio, all highly recommendable. Just to walk around is very relaxing, too and the lodge itself is fantastic, great food, great views, great rooms; the oven is excellent as well! We used drivers and on... More

My wife and I stayed at Chilcambamba for 3 days in August of 2012. It was such a nice change of pace after staying in Quito. Although there are the options to do many activities we didn't do any and instead opted to stay at the lodge and enjoy the beautiful scenery each day. We sat on the bench and... More

My husband and I stayed at the lodge last weekend and are full of praise: everything just feels right, the whole setting, the tastefully (and warmly!) furnished rooms, the great food, and last but not least the warm and efficient service of Marina. The only negative thing is the access road which is in bad repair - but this is... More

Chilcabamba is a wonderful and welcoming place for all natur-loving people who appreciate a tasteful country-style lodging - hikers, trekkers, mountaineers, horse riders, bikers, etc. Chilcabamba is excellently located on the Paramo not too far from the outside Cotopaxi National Park boundary and embedded between the volcanoes/mountains of Cotopaxi 5'897m, Sincholagua 4'919m, Pasochoa 4'200m, Rumiñahui 4'712m and Corazon 4'786m.
