Truly a paradise at a budget price!

Having traveled extensively throughout South America over the past 25 years I have always dreamt of finding my own “El Dorado” al a place where I could relax and find time to smell the flowers. Here in the beautiful valley of Vilcabamba the Hostería Izhcayluma has turned that dream into a reality and a brief glance at their guest book will confirm the obvious. Some of their comments are reprinted here but their honest descriptions, like my own, fail to convey the full picture. Spectacular views, excellent food and accommodation in a setting of a wondrous water garden of flowers and exotic birds are just some of the parts of Izhcayluma.

this place is a little piece of paradise,

Man, this place is a little piece of paradise, and I wasn’t even going to come here. Every day I tell myself that I’ll leave tomorrow. But tomorrow never seemed to come…until now. I’m prying myself from here tomorrow after one epic stay. If the wind happens to blow you here, in my opinion you are one lucky young lad or lass.

Cheers & Bien Viaje to all who follow.

In seven months of traveling it’s easily the best place I’ve stayed.

This place represents fantastic value, even by Ecuadorian standards. 

Delicious food; served in the open air restaurant which has lovely views of the valley below. The owners and staff are as friendly as you like. It’s almost impossible to drag yourself away from the giant outdoor chess board, hammocks and refreshing swimming pool.

The rooms are well furnished, very clean and classically simple.

In seven months of traveling it’s easily the best place I’ve stayed.

with the full body massage I just slipped & have passed my last days here in a state of total relaxation

Normally when I wake up, I can only growl until midday when hopefully real conversation sets in. Here, my legs move my sleeping body to a hammock & I listen to the dawn opera of birds, dogs, cockerels & donkeys down in the valley &, miracle of miracles I wake up gently rocking with a contented smile on my face. When I arrived I immediately felt on holiday in the real true sense of the word – everything perfect & beautiful & everyone so friendly. I started, still in tourist mode, with treks up mountains & use of free bikes to the river but with the full body massage I just slipped & have passed my last days here in a state of total relaxation – swaying in hammocks & dipping in the beautiful pool. I only awaken in the evenings to experience another variation of Pisco Sours – six so far but the best is always in the early hours. It’s been great, I’ve tried to leave for the past couple of days & maybe I’ll make it tomorrow.

Thank you so much.

I’ll be recommending Izhcayluma from here to Chile!
