La Casa Sol was trully a home away from home and as good, if not better, than written a bout it in the travel books. Well done to all the staff.

Wow! Thank you very much for your hospitality over the past four days! We were so nervous about traveling internationally with a six month old & you made it easy. We're very grateful and we hope to be back soon.

La Casa Sol provided exactly the hospitality and service we wanted while we were in Ecuador- a home from home. I stayed with you on four separate occasions between various treks and journeys. You looked afeter our luggage while we were away, and there was always a warm welcome each time we returned. We began to regard La Casa Sol as a second home, where we could relax in between our quite exhausting travels.

Muchas gracias a todos de la Casa Sol No puede elegir un mejor nombre para este lugar, es tan caliente, tan luminosa, es el rayo más brillante de todos. Es como quedar en una puerta de montagna iluminado del sol y abajo es nublado y triste, nadie quiere bajar, es asi como de aquí no quiero viajar.
