We have been sharing a series on Small Ecuador Hotels.

A message about a small Ecuador hotel for sale in Vilcabamba was just posted at this site.

An Ecuador Living subscriber just shared this information on travel to Vilcabamba Ecuador where this small Ecuador hotel is for sale.

Gary,  just to update you a bit on Vilcabamba since you have not been here in so long.  You might want to tell readers that it is not nearly as inaccessible as it once was.  The drive from Cuenca to Loja, still beautiful, now takes about 4 hours.  Taxi drivers make it in 3 1/2.

It is the E35, the Andean branch of the Pan American Highway.

There are a few rough stretches still, but it is now mostly a paved and well maintained highway.  From Loja to Vilcabamba takes about 45 minutes, on the E45, also a paved and well maintained highway, mostly rebuilt in the last 3 years.

It is a 50-minute flight Quito to Loja, then about 1 1/2 hours in taxis to Vilcabamba.  If arranged in advance, a taxi can pick you up at the airport, which is 45 minutes west of Loja, and bring you all the way to Vilcabamba, 45 minutes south of Loja, all over excellent roads.

Otherwise you are likely to have to change taxis in Loja.  The bus takes a bit longer, 1 1/4 hours from Loja, and about the same from Catamayo where the airport is, to Loja.

Please send any further questions or comments to me. Be sure to add EL in the subject.

Regards,

Gary
