El Encanto Hosteria
El Encanto Hosteria is located two hours northwest of
Quito in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. El Encanto's name translates to enchanted and it
certainly lives up to it's name. This amazing sanctuary lies on 140 hectares of a subtropical reserve where one hectare squared has more biodiversity than all of the U.S. and Canada combined. The Resort has been carved out of a hillside overlooking a lush subtropical valley where you can see clouds being born from the river below. A very special feature of the resort is the fact that the equator runsexactly through the middle of it!!
Your private room will be in one of four houses that scatter the hillside overlooking the Rio Blanco Valley. In your free time you can hike to the river, swim in the pool, or relax in the jacuzzi or sauna.
Clouds being born in the subtropics!
