The thermal baths of Nangulvi are a half hour bus ride from the main road. This is eco-tourism at it's best.

I or someone will be here to help you during your stay. I live here full time so I probably will be here. I can take you on a walk to the waterfall the first day and to see the Cock of the Rock lek in the morning.

I am part of the community of Santa Rosa in the Zone of Intag, Ecuador. It is made up of 30 families living on isolated farms. Since everyone has to walk on the public trails, you often meet the neighbor on the trails. Many of the women are artisans of Mujer y Medio Ambiente whom weave and crochet with sisal. It is possible to visit the women and purchase their products.

I like to accompany my guests on some of the hikes in the reserve. I can show them the trail to the river, the Cock-of-the-Rock bird lek, and the trail head to the primary cloud forest. I am available to give drawing and painting classes.
