The location is honestly amazing, however beyond that everything fell below expectations. The staff ("volunteers") were extreemly unhelpful, the food was below budget (hotdogs over spaghetti), and everything came with hidden fees.
Only stay here if your budget is $100+ per night as the only free activity is riding bikes, which 2 of 4 had flat tires. Overall we had such high expectations which were dashed. Check out the other options in the area to avoid dissapointment, or just base in Latacunga.
