If You are looking for a cheap place, go. For a place in the nature, go. For a place with nice people to met, go. I recommande it for sure. We stay 4 nights. You can camp or sleep in a cabins. The accomodation is enough. The kitcheng is full equiped (Just not oven and microwaves)

We stayed in the Riverside cabins for 4 nights. In the middle of the forest you go to sleep with nature and wake up with it. Own kitchen and bathroom. Simply wonderful placecto meditate or do some yoga. There are many walking trails on the property too. Even internet is available free of charge outside of the reception cabin. Do... More

We thoroughly enjoy our stay at the Rumi Wilco Ecolodge. Surrounded by nature, the Ecolodge provided us with everything we needed - from a comfy bed to a very beautiful and well equipped kitchen. Being an Ecolodge there wasn't much in the way of electricity so things like internet and super hot showers aren't provided (which was expected). However, waking... More

This Ecolodge was amazing, from our arrival until our departure. The owners stayed late for us and escorted us to our cabin, right along the river. We had hot water, all kitchen utensils necessary, and the sound of birds for an alarm in the morning. We hiked Ruta Trail 3, up towards the top of the mountain, at sunset: highly... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and wish we could stay for a couple weeks! Very cool authentic Ecuadorian houses fully stocked so you can cook your own meals. They also grow, harvest, dry and roast their own coffee. Very smooth and flavorful. A short 1 mile hike from town, mostly along a river. Great hiking trails with amazing views.... More

Had a great 11 night stay at Rumi Wilco Ecolodges. 19 dollars a night for two with 10 percent discount for staying longer than a week. We stayed in the cottage with a kitchen/dining area and bedroom. The bed was really comfortable quite solid and well made. The cottage is immaculately clean with fridge, gas cooker, juicer, and sink. There... More

We spend more than 2 weeks here and it was hard to leave! We stayed in an adobe house with private kitchen which was very convenient. We especially liked that Rumi Wilco is close enough to the town (you can easliy walk to town) but you have still the feeling of sleeping in nature (a lot of animals around the... More

This place offers $4 per night per person for camping. Amazing view, next to the river, few minutes away from hiking trails. The camping area has good kitchen and hot shower. The owner was very nice. It's quite at night and it's a great place if you want to stay away from the city center (the city can get very... More
