NEARBY TOURS

Sangolquí.- This lovely, bustling market town is 15-20 minutes away. To get there, take the route to San Rafael and as you approach the town, and the main intersection, make a left right after the bridge because you cannot make the turn at the light. At the end of the street, make a right that will take you to the light on the main road, make a left and continue straight. You will see the San Luis Mall on your left side, follow the traffic which veers to the right and then to the left at the light. Continue on the road and soon you will see the town. There is a wonderful wet/animal market on Thursday and Sunday mornings where you may buy fresh produce and fruit. Beware of pickpockets! Visit the town main plaza, this is a very old and historic town. Stroll around and peek inside the old homes. IF YOU ARE NOT DRIVING, HIRE DORIS TO TAKE YOU THERE, her fees are listed and waiting time is $5 an hour.

--Alangasí .- This town is not so attractive, but there are many festivals celebrated here where you can see very traditional customs and costumes. Christmas brings the pase del Niño where the people that have made a nativity scene will take the baby Jesus to church for a mass before they put the set away. These are done with angels, Mary and Joseph, etc. Holy week is one of the main celebrations as well with very tall bonnets and devils, angels and cucuruchos. The celebrations take a whole week in which the whole passion is reenacted. Corpus Christi is another one when the people ride horses in costumes and masks, giants and dancers.

Pintag.- The scenery is lovely, this is a very agricultural town and once a year you can enjoy the toros de pueblo (village bull fights) where everyone jumps in. There is a wet market on Saturdays.

Antisana Mountain.- This is a great ride, close to the villa and up to the base of this lovely mountain, full of birds, rabbits, deer and splendid lakes where sometimes you can fish wild trout.

La Merced is a village mostly known for their hot springs, pools with thermal warm water five minutes from the villa. It is a town in an area where amazing religious festivals take place, the views are extraordinary (mountain views 360 degrees from the villa terrace) and it is close to Sangolqui, famous for their roasted pig and guinea pig and amazing wet markets. The nearest large mall is 15 min away, and you can easily connect with excellent asphalt roads that take you to mountains and hot springs in 60 minutes.
