Here, the focus is not only on discovering the Andes through adventure sport and interaction with its colourful and charismatic local inhabitants, but also on sustainable development and nature conservation.

Camping under the stars in the shadow of the great Cotopaxi is also popular for those who wish to experience the lifestyle of the chagra (Andean cowboy).

El Porvenir’s cozy farmhouse was built with local materials that have been popular in the area for hundreds of years and maintains the tradition and spirit of an authentic Andean working farm. Its strong adobe walls and straw roof create a warm and inviting atmosphere, the perfect place to relax after a full day of adventure. There are several social areas with fireplaces, comfortable rooms and suites and Internet available for guest use.
