It's a little far from the city (about 30 mins by cab which is cheap) but it is closer to the airport so we saved in cab money that way. For us it was worth it because we needed quiet after having had such a busy few weeks and were always go go. This was like a little retreat. We... More

Family of 8 filled the three casitas, welcomed by charming host and his wife and daughter. Beautiful garden and pool area, casitas have their own front porches. Perfect for children and adults alike. Located about halfway between Quito city and the airport.
