The SpaceThis is a perfect spot to chill out and connect with nature in the rainforest, go to the nearby beautiful water places, share some time with friends & family, enjoy a great rafting tour.
You should know although, that most of our visitors live in Quito, come in a group and don't have a problem bringing their own sheets, supplies and food traveling by car.
If you're a traveller, you should be aware that all these details could turn out into inconveniences for you. But if you choose this place knowing all this, you'll have a great great time at this magic spot. Also if you come only in a small group or couple, we can talk about the price.
Description: 160 sqm total (80 per floor)
Downstairs you'll find a huge kitchen desk at the center, hammocks, a toilet, and a storage chamber, where you'll find all the kitchen equipment.
Upstairs you'll have an open room, a divided bathroom with hot shower, and two large bedrooms with a balcony, a double bed and 3 single beds each (10 people). Guest AccessThe place is 17km from Tena, halfway asphalt, halfway dirt road, no 4WD needed. You have a place to park the cars about 50m from the house. From there you'll carry your stuff along a path. From the house you'll see and clearly hear the rafting river Jatun Yaku, having a direct access to the shore.
From here you can get to the waterhole of Laguna Azul by a 15 min. walk (1.7 Km), or get there by car. Interaction with GuestsCell phones only sometimes get a signal out there. We have a satelital phone that you can use to call us in Quito for any questions.
Also there's our neighbors from the community, a very lovely and smiling family, who can offer help with guided tours, cleaning and cooking services, or anything else that could arise. They certainly don't speak english, only spanish and quechua. The NeighborhoodThis place is very close to Llanganates National Park, and you won't find any other spot like this one to stay, on the river shore, easily accesible, with 160sqm to comfortably share with friends or family, enough space for everyone. Getting AroundYou'll be far from public transport, but you'll have a phone available to organize a taxi (30 min/ $15 to Tena). Other Things to NoteThe next store is about 15 min by car away.
On the waterhole of Laguna Azul you can usually get a tipical meal on weekends, that is maito de tilapia (fish cooked in a leaf) - really delicious; and maduro/ corn with cheese, and of course the famous chontakuro (a white fat worm for the brave ones to try!).
