For three mornings I woke up to these vistas, whilst staying at Chuquiragua Lodge (Ecuador), located in Cuidad de Machachi, with its unobstructed background view of Cotopaxi volcano and other mountains.
I liked the views from every angle. All the units are designed with large windows. It was the ideal place to wind down a hectic vacation. I added a massage and a sauna on the last day.
For two days I was the only guest and “chief cook and bottle wash” Antonio tried to cater to my every need. I’m easy to please though.
This is a perfect retreat place!

Each room at this colonial-style property features a mixture of modern décor and colonial furnishings. The Lodge
has a community styled seating area and dining room. Dinner is served to all guests at the same time, family styled along one large dining table. Many guests use the Lodge as a “base camp” to venture out to other parts of Ecuador.
