The friendly, multilingual staff is always happy to assist with tourist information, tour and transport bookings and lots of helpful advice! We have a variety of tours including an expedition to a local coffee plantation, horseback-riding, rock-climbing trips, hiking, culturally responsible visits to local Indigenous villages and more!

In addition, we have our own filtered water tanks, so when the rest of San Cristobal runs out, we are still taking long, hot showers!
