Located at 3600 m (11808 ft), in a breathtaking valley, El Porvenir is surrounded by four volcanoes.
Here our guests enjoy their stay in a comfortable, welcoming and beautiful traditional Andean hacienda house, built with traditional materials such as brick, straw, wood and adobe.
The living room and dining room with their crackling fires warmly welcome the guests. The dining room overlooks a large courtyard surrounded by buildings and barns used for farming. An impressive backdrop is the ever-changing Sincholagua Volcano.
The restaurant serves Ecuadorian specialties at $12 for three courses. The delicious food is freshly prepared and will keep chilly hikers warm!
