This property is absolutely beautiful in scenery, location, accommodations, etc. You MUST stay here since it is none like no other in or about Quito. The 3 course dinner is absolutely gourmet and the staff super friendly. We stayed in the Aliso Suite and it was comfortable and immaculately clean! Wifi is fast and available in the lobby area.

We arrived at Chuquiragua after a long day site-seeing. My grandmother, my aunt, my cousin and I were the only people staying at the lodge that night, but the staff had stayed up for our arrival. It was late, but Tony still made us dinner, and dessert. The ice cream was the best ice cream I think I have ever... More

The Rooms are nice and neat, we got even fresh roses in our room. The situation of the lodge in the middle of many vulcans is perfect for many activities such as hiking,... More

On our way to Cotopaxi, we stopped at the Chuquiragua Lodge for breakfast and than after for lunch. It is a beautiful Lodge, where you can look directly at Cotopaxi. The rooms are neat and very cozy. For breakfast we had fruit, 2 peaces of bread with different kinds of marmalade and scrambled eggs. Also a "jugo" and coffee. For... More

My needs are simple when we travel to a place like Ecuador--unless we have booked a high-end property I am looking for clean, safe, comfortable. This place really exceeded my lodging expectations for the area. The place is wonderfully located with outstanding views of Cotopaxi and Las Ilanizas. A charming location and great base for exploring hiking and biking in... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night on a trip from Cotopaxi to Quilotoa. Our travel agency in Ecuador (Safari Tours) suggested it, and we were both very glad they did. This is a beautiful lodge / farm. The owners are a very friendly, young couple who seem like they are willing to do whatever they can to... More
