The views from hilltops are amazing here, and the setting is tranquil, away from the bustle of the Otavalo Market (great in its own way). But the real treat here is the richness of knowledge from the co-owners, and their generosity in sharing what they know. Their consulting library alone, open on an honour system, is a gold mine of information on cultural, social and political issues. The artwork on display throughout is fascinating. The tone is unpretentious, but the intellectual level of discussion is stimulating. Six of us stayed here, all very different people, and the staff found something really special for each one of us. As they say in Michelin guides, vaut le voyage, this place is worth a trip in itself. It's also a great base for hiking.
- 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
