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 my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
