Stay at the Finca

This charming two story cottage, known as Casa Verde (Green House), is located on a delightful 2.5 acre farm. It is a cozy retreat nestled between the Andes Mountains of Mama Cotacachi and Papa Imbabura with expansive vegetables gardens that our guests are welcome to enjoy. The property also has Amazonian medicinal plants, herb gardens, fruit trees, flowers and the occasional pony.
