Hotels in Guamote

Below you will find 2 hotels in Guamote (Inti Sisa and Chuza Longa), one in Alausi (La Quinta) and one in Ingapirca. We have grouped them because these three towns are not far from each other and therefore overlap. And you can also visit Guamote from Riobamba: look at the hotels in Riobamba.
In Guamote, Inti Sisa is “the place to be”. Chuza Longa is usually visited when Inti Sisa is full (that happens on Wednesday evenings because on Thursday morning the well-known indigenous market attracts a lot of people).
La Quinta is reserved if you want to take the train “Nariz del Diablo”. At the moment (at the end of 2020), however, the entire tourist train activity has been stopped – including the popular Nariz del Diablo. It remains to be seen whether these programs will be restarted.

Inti Sisa


Guamote is a small mountain village known for its indigenous people and traditions. As part of an integral development project, Inti Sisa offers 23 beautiful guest rooms here. All rooms have private bathrooms. In addition, you can also enjoy good food in the guesthouse. The project provides support to the local residents of Guamote. On Thursday morning you step out the door and end up in the most beautiful indigenous market in Ecuador. The project is run by a few Flemish volunteers.

La Quinta


This beautiful hotel is housed in a restored wine estate. The domain is cultural heritage of the city of Alausi. You will find yourself here in a beautiful setting, near the railway station of Alausi. The hotel has about 7 standard rooms and one suite. In the restaurant you can have a nice meal and after the meal you can go to the bar for a drink.
After a long closure due to Covid and also caused by the cancellation of the Nariz del Diablo train route, the hotel reopened in early 2023.

Posada Ingapirca


This 200-year-old hacienda is located about 500 mt from Ingapirca, Ecuador’s most important archaeological site. The hacienda has been carefully restored. Here you can sleep in one of the 23 rooms or suites, all with private bathroom and fireplace. Be sure to take a look in the game room or stroll through the beautiful gardens. In the restaurant you can enjoy a delicious gourmet kitchen, after which you can enjoy a drink in the bar.

Indian woman from SalasacasIn South America, Ecuador is one of the smaller countries, but the country is hugely diverse in terms of geography, climate and population. You can visit the Andes, the Amazon rainforest as well as the tropical coast without taking extremely long domestic flights or transfers. And then you have the Galapagos Islands, a once in a lifetime experience. The diversity of flora and fauna per square mile is enormous. Ecuador is South America in a nutshell. Moreover, the country is relatively safe and little visited. The national currency is the USD and you have a wide choice of direct flights to Quito and Guayaquil from Europe and the United States.
