La Rinco remains one of my fondest memories of our trip to Ecuador. It is a perfect place to relax, very quiet and isolated at the top of a cliff on the coast in the middle of the tropical rainforest that runs between Ayampe and La Entrada. There is nothing around, so you need to go to the nearby towns... More

We were looking for somewhere to escape from the usual stresses of New Years, and what a find. Spectacular little place, with amazing views of the beaches between Olon and La Entrada. The bungalow was superb....nice and sapcious (which is what we wanted for our very active and curious 18-month old son), a small basically equipped kitchen, AC in the... More

A wonderful escape, the Casita was lovely, and our hosts were so gracious and helpful. It was the perfect way to end our travels in Ecuador. Be sure to visit the small village a short hike down the hill for amazing fresh seafood brought in daily by local fishermen. We loved the whole experience!

We stayed 2 nights at La Rinco on our recent trip to Ecuador. If you are looking to be away from the party atmosphere of Montanita this is the perfect place. The view is absolutely stunning as you the rooms are on a mountain overlooking the ocean. You get to enjoy this view throughout your breakfast which is a small... More

The best value hotel on the coast run by a very friendly and helpful couple. Lovely artistic touches in each of the chalets and fabulous views from the decks of each chalet. Great recommendations for things to do and places to see. Dinner at the local farm house each evening was a delight, great food and lovely people.

We enjoyed the beautiful location and the nice house we lived in. The staff was very friendly, had many tipps for our stay in Ecuador and knew a lot about people and culture. For animal lovers the hotel also provides a dog and a cat :-)

We had a wonderful stay at La Rinco for two nights over New Year’s. As independent travelers with a car at our disposal, we found the best of both worlds at La Rinco: easy access to a wide mix of coastal towns (from the manic Montanita to much more laid back scenes in Ayampe etc) but also a feeling of...

La Rinco is a very nice and clean place, but what I like the most was the service! You are able to feel confortable, the guy who is the owner is always asking you if everything is ok and he recomends you places to eat and visit! Also he has great ideas to involve the community in a turism project.... More

We stayed at La Rinco for three nights, and by the time we had to check out, we wanted to extend our stay for a week! The words that mostly describe the essence of the place are: peaceful, beautiful in its sights and nature surroundings and excellent in it´s warm and home-style service. Other features are that breakfast is great... More
