Great experience for our family! We needed a restful time and the beautiful views were amazing. I enjoy biking so was also able to get in some mountain biking by climbing out of the crater. Victor was an excellent support and guide on the horseback riding adventure that my wife, daughter and niece went on. Carmen was an excellent chef,... More

I liked very much, because you can sleep inside a volcano. It is a unique experience!!! It is very peaceful and you can relax. And, if you like to walk, it is the best place to go, because there are several routes!!!

The Pululahua crater is an amazing place to stay and this hostal is perfect for exploring it. The rooms are comfortable and the food is freshly prepared, very nice and plentiful. The first morning we were stunned how quiet it was, the only sound to be heard was the birds singing. The grounds, especially the garden, are amazing with hummingbirds... More

We stayed two nights in one of the heated rooms with private bath. Very large room with a wood burning stove, overlooks the garden and crater. Lots of birding and hiking options. The best Wifi connection in Ecuador! We did not go horseback riding, but it looked like a great way to explore the crater, and the horses and tack... More

We booked the Pululahua Hostal because we were looking for a reasonably-priced quiet getaway close to Quito. The owner, Renato, picked us up at the airport and drove us out to the hostal, at the bottom of a volcano crater near Mitad del Mundo. The hostal is located near the base of the hiking path down, but the road enters... More

We had been to the eastern slope of the Andes in Ecuador & now wanted to go to the western slope. I found Pululahua Hostal on the web & contacted Renato for information. He responded quickly & helpfully & that, along with what I had read on the web, convinced me he was our man; so I told him we... More

Although Pululauhua is close to Quito, it's like being in a different world. We had booked a 3-night package, and Renato (our host) picked us up at our Quito hotel for the drive to the crater (with a stop at Mitad del Mundo along the way). He gave us the choice to drive with him the entire way, or hike... More

Time alone to think, write, walk, and ride horses, all my favorite activities. A woman traveling alone in Ecuador...many think I am out of my mind, but secretly may, wish they were doing the same. I am on a sojourn of sorts and how I ended up in Pululahua Crater has much to do with the draw of horses, the... More

When we first looked out over the crater from the lookout we weren't too impressed. But we then hiked down into the crater and it's like entering another world. It's peaceful and quiet. We stayed in the room with a wood stove. We didn't really need the stove for warmth but it was nice to have. The best thing about... More

My husband and I booked a full day’s birding with Renato. He picked us up at our hotel in Quito at 6 am with coffee and sandwiches and we set out for our first stop which was Antisana National Park. Our main goal here was Andean Condor and Renato maneuvered us in the perfect spot to watch an adult male... More
