We just returned from a two week trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos. The Ali Shungu Lodge was our first stop after arriving in Ecuador. The accomodations were amazing. Frank is a gracious and a well informed host who takes obvious pride in his beautiful lodge and the surrounding community. His staff made us feel like royalty.
Frank helped plan every part of our stay including visiting the Otavalo market, horseback riding and hiking. His advice and local color made our experience very memorable.
The meals were delicious and a wonderful first introduction to Ecuadorian cuisine. Our family of four shared a two bedroom house. The wool blankets, fireplace and the full kitchen complete with ample drinking water and coffee made for an excellent stay.
Our only disappointment was having to leave after a very short two night visit.
