Refugio Terra Esperanza
The Refugio Terra Esperanza is a traditional family-run mountain lodge nestled in the high Ecuadorian Andes. Situated less than three hours north from Quito on the Panamerican highway and about 30 minutes by bus from Otavalo, it is the ideal location for adventure seekers, as well as for people who just want to relax and get away from it all. Surrounded by a spectacular mountain scenery, volcanos, lakes, waterfalls and caves we offer you as little or as much as you want. Come hiking with an experienced guide on some of our beautiful and sometimes challenging high altitude mountain routes, walk up to the volcano Imbabura, explore some remote and untouched lakes, canyons, creeks and elaborate cave systems, go shopping in Cacachi and Otavalo or just relax by the fire with a good book. Furthermore, our family elaborates beautiful fine-leather crafts. You can learn about the entire process and, if you like, show your creativity and put your new skills to use in the design of new models of belts, sandals, handbags, wallets or any other garment conjured by your imagination.
All of this in a friendly familiar environment where you can improve your Spanish skills for free!
Our prices include accommodation and a hearty breakfast of eggs, bread, milk, and juice. Free tea, coffee and drinking water available throughout the day as well. We have shared and private rooms, a kitchen, dining area with fireplace and bar (offering free welcome drink).
We are always looking for backpackers to help us out in the reception, design new leather crafts or maintaining the building. So if you are a fun loving backpacker with an outgoing personality feel free contact us. For a few shifts a week we offer free accommodation and free breakfast.
