If you scroll through the ratings until you find FBMadrid, you will find my exact sentiments. The setting and property are beautiful and the staff was great, but no one was knowledgable about the wildlife in the area, which, by the way, was not the same wildlife the website claimed could be seen. I was most looking forward to the horseback riding, and I was sadly disappointed. The website shows beautiful tack hanging in a nice room or stable area, but what we found was a pile of various horse equipment piled outside. My friend's saddle had a nail sticking out of it, and mine was tied on with baling twine. The only place to ride was on the road. Not fun.
The owner had given us a price to pick us up in Otavalo, and then changed that price later, in his favor of course.
My favorite part of the trip was listening to the chef play guitar and sing Spanish folk songs. He was very good. The hike to the high waterfall was also very nice.
