Many days it is sunny and bright with blue skies and you find yourself walking on the shady side of the street. Other days are overcast – but still mild. Temperatures during the day average about 75 degrees and at night it dips into the fifties – needing a sweater or light jacket. When it rains – it is usually at night – sometimes in the afternoon for twenty or thirty minutes just to clear the air. And being so close to the equator, we have twelve hours of day and twelve hours of night and never have to worry about daylight savings time. The currency is the American Dollar – no problems with currency exchange. Minimum Stay: 2 weeks. Guest AccessEverything, the apt. is yours while you're there.

Cotacachi is a wonderful little town of 8,000 friendly people nestled in a beautiful green valley between two extinct volcanoes – Volcan Imbabura and Volcan Cotacachi. The town is located in Northern Ecuador – approximately two hours north of Quito. The town is known as the leather capital of Ecuador. Many towns in Ecuador have special skill designations and for Cotacachi – it is leather. The main street is filled with leather stores – where you can purchase just about anything made from leather – boots and shoes, purses and handbags, jackets, hats, belts and the list goes on and on. The people are made up of two groups – the indigenous and the mestizos. The indigenous come from their Inca ancestors and have kept many of the traditions, religion and dress. The men wear white trousers and sandals and many times a small hat. The women wear floor length wrap-around skirts and sandals. They also wear a head covering and many strands of necklaces. These are the farming people of the community. The mestizos lean more towards modernization – wearing jeans and tennis shoes. They drive cars, own businesses, have cell phones and for the most part attend the Catholic Church. Getting AroundYes, the bus is safe and easy and CHEAP! $2.50 to airport or Quito. 25-75 cents to neighboring towns. Cabs and private minivans can also be arranged very affordably. Everything is near by – you can walk everywhere to the restaurants, banks and shops. You don’t need a car. And if you need a taxi – they are only a dollar anywhere in Cotacachi. And bus fares are reasonable also – if you want to go to Otavalo – site of South America’s largest open air market – the fare is only 25 cents for a five or six mile trip – and to Ibarra to the shopping malls – it is only 45 cents for about a 20 mile trip. Other Things to NoteMinimum Stay: 2 weeks.

The SpaceThis cloud forest rental is located along the Toabunchi River in northwestern Ecuador, just 33 miles from the market town of Otavalo. The stucco house is surrounded by gardens that attract the 200-plus species of birds from the retreat's 60 acres of forest. The often snow-capped 17,000’ Cotacachi mountain is in view from the house. Mild temperatures are the norm: an average of 75 to 80 F. Guests can hike along the river or up the mountain to view birds and orchids and other strikingly beautiful wildflowers. The area is free of tropical diseases. Meals are available from the resident caretakers who are also the cook and guide. A picturesque forty minute walk brings you to a 860 acre reserve, teeming with wildlife and thundering waterfalls. A thirty-minute drive takes you to the small town of Apuela, with stores, a health clinic and the organic Coffee Cooperative of ACRI, to witness the way the coffee process works--from farm to roasted beans. Not far away are the hot baths of Nangulvi. These natural hot springs are set in a deep valley, the mountains rising straight from the valley floor. The best part of Your Home in the Cloud Forest is the closeness to nature it provides. The refuge is well off the main road, so the sounds you hear are the birds and the river, and the clouds that frequently cloak the forested mountains make for a dramatic setting. Getting there: We are located 1.5 hours from Otavalo, the following are our transportation options: 1. If you have your own car: Take the road to Lago Cuicocha.

The NeighborhoodLOCAL ATTRACTIONS Cotacachi The thriving artisan city of Cotacachi, nestled in a valley between Volcan Imbabura and Volcan Cotacachi, is accessed by two main exits off the Pan-American Highway just 5 miles northwest of Otavalo . Cotacachi is renowned for the exquisite leather shops. Otavalo The rich volcanic soils of Otavalo support a collection of farming communities, but the emergence of tourism as the main industry has forever changed the local economy. Otavalo's open air market, described as one of the most important in South America. Intag Valley The subtropical Intag Valley is considered to be one of the ten most biologically diverse regions in the entire world. It is also home to hundreds of small – scale farmers, who produce Arabica coffee. Laguna Cuicocha Only about a ten minute walk from El Lugar Tranquilo one enters the hiking trail surrounding Laguna Cuicocha , a much-visited crater lake forming the southern border of the Cotacachi-Cayapas Ecological Reserve. Quiroga The quaint town of Quiroga is the parish center for the rural village of Ugshapungo and the area surrounding The Tranquil Place. The town comes alive during the myriad festivals and holidays that local residents are delighted to share with visitors. Cayambe Just a short drive from The Tranquil Place the 5790 meter (18, 997 feet) high Volcano Cayambe watches as more than 700 flower farms add about a half-billion dollars to Ecuador's economy every year. Cayambe's population mushroomed from about 10,000 to over 70,000 people, owing to the economic engine of flower production. Ibarra-Salinas Train Ecuador's efforts to restore its once decrepit train system delight visitors during the Tren de la Libertad's (Liberty Train) exceptional 30-kilometer journey from Ibarra to Salinas. Passing through mountains, river valleys and tunnels cut long ago, the breathtaking scenery along old but still sound railroad trestles affords dozens of outstanding photo opportunities. A local guide provides a running commentary about the regional history. Horseback Riding The wonders of the high Andes are easily accessible on horseback, and a day trip can be arranged ahead of time through our reservation link. You can view the landscape from the back of a gentle, well-trained horse during a two-hour, privately guided tour. Chachimbiro Hot Springs Ready, set, soak! It doesn't take much time to discover why the Hot Springs of Chachimbiro bear the Quechua name for “strength". These mineral-rich waters will soothe you to the core and renew your strength. *A side trip to Ecuador's City of Knowledge “Yachay" can be arranged in conjunction with the Hot Springs tour. Getting AroundTaxi,buses and private charters are available for arrangement. Other Things to NoteSustainable Living The Tranquil Place (TTP) in Ugshapungo, Ecuador is situated on 33 acres of prime volcanic farm land at 3240 meters (10,500 feet) elevation in the Ecuadoran Andes. We grow our crops using organic farming methods and principles of permaculture as practiced by Australians Sepp Holzer, David Holmgren and Bill Mollison. TTP's philosophy is aligned with the three basic ethics of permaculture: care for the earth, care for people, and fair share. The founders are incorporating the twelve principles of permaculture developed by David Holmgren as they design the fields, orchards, gardens and buildings. Indigenous Ecuadorians have much to teach us about sustainability with their knowledge of local fauna and non-consumptive ways of living.
