We extended our stay with Paola and Renato from 2 to 4 days, since the caldera as such is a unique and beautiful place and we got good contact (had nice discussions) with the owners/staff and other - domestic - guests, but also some nice talks with other people living in the valley.
They have/are about to increase the sustainability by installing renewable energy/eco-toilet/waste separation and recyling and by offer a lot of locally/regionally/nationally sourced food (prepared very nicely).
So thank you very much for a nice stay, and see most likely next time we return to Ecuador! :-)

P.S. The only things we would have wished for was a not natural gas-fired warm water/stove (what takes away the feeling of being "close to nature" as well as goes against the otherwise sustainable profile).
For increasing the Sleep Quality mark (and the energy profile) - a bit better insulated cabin would have been appreciated.
