Do we have to share a guesthouse with other guests?
No, whether you are 1 guest or a family of four, the price is for a guesthouse.

How can we pay?
We accept cash! We no longer accept travelers checks.  We accept credit cards,
but only through Paypal.  You may pay with your credit card over the internet
using Paypal.

How far are we from Otavalo?
We are exactly 3 miles from Otavalo.  The beautiful 45 minute walk to Otavalo
follows a quiet cobblestone road and is easy…….it is all downhill.

How can we get to and from Otavalo?
The Ali Shungu SUV often drives down to Otavalo each morning between 8:00-
9:00 am.  Guests are welcomed to drive down with us at these times!  Local
buses pass by three times a day to and from Yambiro, not very convenient.
Otherwise, a taxi costs only $5.00 each way and we can easily have a taxi here
at the Lodge within 10-15 minutes.

What do we do for food?
Your Ali Shungu Mountaintop Lodge Vacation Home Rental has a small, efficient kitchen with all one needs to prepare good, complete meals.  We drive down to the markets often and guests are welcome to come down and shop with us.

Can we stay a couple of nights night?

At this time we have a four night minimum at the Ali Shungu Lodge.  There are plenty of activites to keep you busy while int he area!

What kind of clothing do we need?
Think in terms of layers when traveling anywhere in the Sierra of Ecuador.  For
the Lodge, here on top of our mountain, bring a sweater just in case it gets chilly
and good walking shoes or boots.

I get cold easily.  Will I be cold at night in the guesthouse?
The guesthouses are well insulated and retain the heat provided by the sun very
well.  Our watchman will light the cast iron wood stove if a mountain chill moves
in.  The wood stoves are efficient and smoke free and will keep the temperature
inside crispy!

Will our kids be bored?
We have dogs, cats, llamas, sheep and horses, all glad to receive attention.
There are plenty of trails and we have board games in each guesthouse.  There
are plenty of kids in the village that would love to play with a “gringito/a”!

I need access to the internet.  What will I do?
Connect your laptop or ipad to our Mountaintop Lodge high speed wi-fi
connection.  We have a laptop in the reception of the Lodge so guests will not
feel compelled to go into town only for checking e-mail.

How will I find my way to the Lodge from Otavalo?
Visits to the Lodge are for guests only and only by prearranged reservation.
Truly, though very close to Otavalo, the Lodge is a bit out of the way.  We’ll send
you a map or a taxi to bring you up!

Can you help us make plans to see the area?
Absolutely!  Each guest receives a map and a list of things to do in the area.  If
you do not have a vehicle we can send you out for a taxi tour for $10. - $12. an
hour.  One can cover a lot of territory in 3 or 4 hours.  There are also some
excellent walks.  We’ll be glad to send you out in the right direction.
