Hacienda El Tambo Quilindaña dates back to Inca times. It was a refuge on the road leading the jungle. This marvelous farm is located in a magical setting surrounded by many volcanoes, such as Cotopaxi 5897 m (19347 ft), Quilindaña 4878 m (16000 ft) that presides over it, and the majestic Antisana 5704 m (18709 ft).

In a hut built with straw and stone originating from Cotopaxi's many eruptions and carved by Inca hands, our visitors will experience pristine and unique landscapes during their expeditions with comfort and a personalized service. In this unique spot in the Andes, everywhere you look you see the solitude and beauty of a valley bathed in rivers and the silence and ever-present wind of the “páramo”.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
