WOW this place is incredible! Located on the outskirts of cajas nat'l park, in a gorgeous mountain valley lies hosteria dos chorreras. It's hard to describe how cool this place is, as it is literally built into/around a cloud forest mountainside. Unbelievable architectural feat, the nature outside actually comes INSIDE. There are huge moss covered boulders with a multidude of life inside the hotel. Instead of destroying the hillside to build the hotel, they actually built the structure around the natural elements. There are giant glass windows everywhere to enjoy the views, which are incredible. A mountain stream actually flows into the lodge under a wall and continues thru the building. The lodge is rustic but very elegant and majestic. We started our day with a very reasonably priced guided horseback tour(horses were roped together with the guide walking in front with the lead horse's rope) to a old mining town. We toured though the town and then explored an actual gold mine. Then we returned to the lodge for lunch. The food and service were excellent. We had the trucha de la casa(fresh trout with mushrooms and shrimp sauce), which was perfect. They have a decent wine collection as well. The rooms are incredible as well. Ours had heated water pipes under the floor which warm the bed and floors, as well as a huge real wood fireplace along with a very clean and classy hot tub for two. Please do not come here expecting an American or European style hotel, as it is something totally different. The entire lodge is open air, and is largely the same temperaturel as outside. This is by design though, and the only way to bring the natural world this close to the guests. A romantic nature lovers paradise!!! Also, the road is far away and the noise was no factor at all.
