My family of 4 stayed at Casa Mojanda for three nights in late March 2013 and loved every minute. The rooms and grounds are beautiful and furnished with a great eye for detail. The food - much of it grown in the organic garden right outside the kitchen - is truly exceptional. And the staff couldn't have been nicer. I came home with several recipes for the amazing soups they served at each dinner. (Make sure you have an afternoon snack of popcorn, served with fried garlic and onions.) The hot tub is a great experience - no chemicals! The market town of Otavalo is a quick, $4 taxi ride away. There are llamas on the property, and Mojanda offers horseback riding and hiking trips.There are great hikes to dormant volcanoes/crater lakes nearby.
One note: You'll need to bring your own shampoo.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Mojanda operates on the basis of a firm and ongoing commitment to the principles and practices of ecological tourism and contribution to the surrounding community. Casa Mojanda was designed to have a minimally intrusive impact on our local ecosystem and culture. We believe that ecotourism operations must at a minimum “do no harm,” and be sustainable socio-economically and environmentally, as well as harmonious with and actively supportive of indigenous traditions and cultures. When it comes to lodgings and resorts, we believe that small is beautiful. By keeping Casa Mojanda large in vision but small in scale, we are able to interact with our guests personally, and whenever there is interest, we will connect visitors with local schools, clinics and environmental projects. Each guest is a part of this ongoing process and your feedback and participation are most welcome. ... more less
