Sacred Valley of Cotundo
This exclusive ecotourism complex of bungalows is located in the Sacred Valley of Cotundo within the Sumaco Biosphere Reserve, where the Eastern Slope of the Andes ends and the Amazon basin begins.
This unique location allows us to offer different activities from jungle hikes to caving or discovering the millenarian culture of the indigenous people through its art expressions.
It is only a 4 hour drive (by private car) from Ecuador´s capital city Quito making Huasquila the most accessible Amazon destination of Ecuador, especially for short stays (3 day packages). It is also a get away from the typical tourist area so that you can enjoy a genuine Amazon experience.
You have three different options to get to Huasquila: public bus, private car or our Huasquila transfer service from and to Quito.
Huasquila transfer service:
We will pick you up in your hotel and take you non-stop in less than 4 hours to Huasquila (stops possible if you wish to take pictures go to the bathroom, or you just like an interesting spot). We will drive you back to your destination and you will enjoy having a private minivan which adapts to your special wishes. Safe, fast and comfortable.
If you have a jeep you can make the trip on your own. The journey lasts approx. 4 hours and it's full of attractions. The road is better than it was in the past so nowadays you drive almost all the time on a new paved road, with some bad parts.
Several bus companies travel to Tena every day. “Transportes Baños”, “Amazonas” and “Jumandy” are the most famous ones. The bus leaves from Quito´s main bus terminal (Terminal Terrestre) and the trip lasts approx. 5 hours. When you get into the bus you have to tell the driver that you want to get off in Cotundo, where you have to take a taxi to take you to Huasquila. The ticket costs about 6 USD plus 3 USD for the taxi. Please take a public phone card just in case you miss anything so you can call us to help you out.
