La Luna is a tranquil country hostel situated in the beautiful green mountains that surround the town of Otavalo, famous for itís Indian crafts market.
Weíre just 4km from the town centre (easily reached on foot or by taxi ) but it feels a world away as up here we enjoy tranquility, stunning mountain scenery, clean air and a highly relaxed atmosphere.
So weíre the perfect place from which to visit the market (held everyday of the year though bigger on Saturdays and Wednesdays) and also enjoy some beautiful Andean scenery in a peaceful countryside setting, far from the noise and chaos of Otavalo.
Itís also a great base from which to do some first class walking, hiking, and climbing all of which can be organized by us.
The Otavalo area and itís many delights (Mojanda Lakes, Cuicocha Lake, Imbabura Volcano, Indigenous Villages etc ) are also easily explored from here.
If all that sounds too strenuous for you then why not just relax in a hammock and enjoy our great views (all the way to Colombia ), tasty homemade food (from the organic gardens ), real coffee, fine music (live Andean music on Saturday) and a friendly homely atmosphere.
La Luna is located in a very friendly community where you will always receive a Buenos Dias and a smile from passers by. A walk through this beautiful area gives you a fascinating incite into the rural way of life of the local people. Traditional farming techniques are still widely used in this highly fertile area.
Our helpers all live locally and will be pleased to let you try out your Spanish on them, however poor it may be. Youíll also meet travelers of all descriptions from all around the world.
