It offers 18 rustic and charming rooms where you will rest with comfort. The rooms have electricity and private baths with hot water. A dining room supplies travelers with delicious food. Enjoy the fresh cold water pool, attractive surrounding and gardens filled with colorful hummingbirds.
The Chillo is run by the Arces, a friendly local family who works hard to offer travelers personal and warm service. Ms. Ada Arce will prepare the delicious meals with fresh ingredients. Special dietary needs may be accomodated. Mr. Oscar Arce is an expert in the area who loves his native Chachapoyas. In addition, he is a superb storyteller - relax at this comfortable lodge and enjoy a conversation with him.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
