You can choose to hire this tour with private transportation (pick up from either a Quito hotel or the Quito airport) OR to make your own way to the lodge (by bus from Quitumbe to Tena, one way ticket is 7 USD. You will have to get off in a small town called COTUNDO, from where you can take a Taxi to Huasquila for approx. 4 USD. Make sure to tell the bus driver to leave you in the small town of COTUNDO, not at the main road, since from there it will be hard to take a taxi).

Past Clients Feedback

"I would describe Huasquila as comfortable in a rustic style, with beautiful gardens and nice social areas. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and the tours were active and fun too. We did the adrenalin itinerary with rafting included - that was the highlight of our tour!" (Rita Patel, UK)
