Cotacachi   Colonial Street

Enclosed By Nature

The population in this town is of about 8,000, different from the 2-hour away city of Quito. Catachachi settles in the middle of two volcanoes. Surrounded by beautiful landscape it is a short drive of 30 minutes from Lago San Pablo, Ecuador’s largest lake. Travel to the Cayapas Ecological reserve, which has over 750,000 protected acres of forest, to see all forms of landscapes. Avenida 10 de Agosto is famous for its numerous leather artisans; there you can find dozens of stores selling fine leather jackets, belts, shoes, and more. The low cost living and the attractive Andean views are bringing more and more expats to this community.

Preserved & Vivid Traditions

Cotacachi is where the expat culture is well defined now a day, but Otavalo is home to a rich indigenous culture. Otavalo is much larger than Cotacachi with 90,000 inhabitants. On Saturdays, there is a large market that overflows from the Plaza de Ponchos; it fills the streets along in a third of the city with colorful textiles and crafts. The people from Otavalo are famous for their crafty weavings, everything from blankets, bags, sweaters, gloves, and more. One can recognize Otavaleños by their traditional dress, white pants, and dark ponchos for men, and bright color dresses for women.

Perfect Stress Reliever

Many go to Ibarra or Quito for their doctor’s visits, but for some the slow pace and Andean towns are perfect for reliving stress and getting away from the stress of the big city.

Otavalo is a magnet for tourists looking to experience one of the oldest indigenous markets in Latin America. Located in the northern Andes, it’s an area known for glacier lakes, soaring mountains, and waterfalls where hiking, biking, and horseback riding are very popular. At less than 90 minutes from Quito’s International Airport, it’s an easy destination for global travelers. Tambo Inti is a perfect resort for people who want to be near all the attractions but also have a tranquil respite at the end of the day. This hosteria has an excellent reputation for offering guests a choice of beautiful accomodations. First, there is the 100-year-old restored manor house with antiques and Old World charm. This main house has three suites downstairs and three more upstairs. In addition, there are four cabins with wide covered porches. The four cabins make the total 10 units. All the rooms are family friendly suites TV, WIFI, usually three beds and some with fireplaces. Many of the decorations are from the market in Otavalo which gives the spaces authentic warmth. Guests’ remarks are that the decor is very tasteful and well thought out. They always rave about strolling the grounds and most mention the excellent food. There is a lovely restaurant in the manor house which features expansive fireside dining indoors and a wrap around terrace where eating al fresco is a must on sunny mountain mornings. The kitchen prep area is well equipped to handle most any size group. Upstairs there is a covered terrace that can also be used for receptions. From up there, you see mountains and can survey the manicured pathways that lead to the rest of the resort. For large parties such as weddings, business retreats, or family reunions, there is separate banquet hall designed to serve bbq or pizzas to a crowd seated at long wooden tables. The bar makes it easy to mix drinks and the kitchen area is set up to serve buffet style. Another building is a party room with round tables for smaller groups or maybe music and dancing after the banquet. It would also be ideal for business training meetings. For recreation, there’s a kiddie playground, picnic area, fire pit, and a game room with billiards and ping pong. Over an acre of gardens to explore make this an appealing place to stay and a good investment for the savvy buyer looking for a turnkey operation in a thriving community. It’s a plus that there is a separate laundry room built in 2019, ample secure parking, and emergency generator. This is a truly spectacular resort! If that’s not enough to entice you to come look, there’s more! The owner built his home near the hosteria and is selling this two bed/two and a half bath cottage in a separate listing. There are only two lots (half acre each) left for building in the gated community that abuts this property. The bundle price for the hosteria, house and two lots is only $840,000! If you’ve imagined yourself living in a mountain paradise while running a successful inn, give us a call!

Undoubtedly the most unique property on the Ecuadorian northern highland market at this time, this is truly a one-of-a kind gem. Here, modern luxury is redefined offering a unique juxtaposition of natural serenity and deliberate comfort. . Tucked away nicely off the road into town, this stunning estate boasting close to 4000 square feet of total living space and an extensive yard extending over 2 hectares in various elevations, is securely positioned on a corner lot within a private complex. There are gated entrances on two sides of the property, a perimeter wall on the third, and a ravine – a natural border leading down a trail to the Yanayacu river on the back side. Access to the complex is controlled remotely from a cell phone. The home also has a security system with cameras, alarm, as well as motion detectors. . Be prepared to be awed by mother nature’s beauty enveloping the entire area. The 360-degree views are nothing short of breathtaking and to witness firsthand the multiple aspects of mounts Cotacachi and Imbabura all day long, is truly a luxurious privilege. The luxury continues to exude from the impeccably maintained grounds with thoughtful landscaping strategically surrounding the main residence adding color and depth while providing shade and privacy. . The main residence is all one level and has 2 bedrooms each with full ensuite baths, an office (potential third bedroom), half-bath, living room, dining area, huge open concept gourmet kitchen with pantry, laundry room and 2-car garage. . Upon entering through a gorgeous custom wrought-iron security door, you are immediately greeted by the grandeur of the foyer setting the tone for the entire home. High ceilings and open spaces abound and are best showcased in the central living room with the vaulted ceilings, electric fireplace, and large windows showering the interior with abundant light as well as glass door leading to the back patio. To the left of the living room you have a half-bathroom followed by an office which could easily convert to a small bedroom. The main bedroom is on this side of the home and is an enormous space with multiple windows for amazing in-bed views. Here there is access to the outside patio area. The main bedroom has attached a huge ensuite bathroom boasting soaking tub (again with amazing views), double sinks, gorgeous countertops, step-in shower, separate toilet area, and probably the largest walk-in closet in all of Cotacachi. . To the right of the living room on the other side of the home is a dining nook flanked by windows. Here is where you will find the amazing gourmet kitchen: all open-concept designed to north American standards. This kitchen oozes luxury not just because of the gorgeous Brazilian granite counters, but the modern layout and open flow make entertaining easy and simple. The stainless steel appliances will be conveyed with the home. The pantry is nice and large and conveniently located in between fridge and sink, which has nice views for while you wash dishes. Off the kitchen there is a second large bedroom again flanked with floor-ceiling windows with door opening out onto the patio. A large ensuite bath is quite comfortable. Around the corner is a large laundry room, just off the covered 2-car garage. Here is a great place to store tools or bicycles as the there is an automatic door opener. . There is a 300 square foot out-building on the premise currently being used as a chicken coop, which has been plumbed for water and electric. Adjacent to the coop is a fenced-in feeding area. A bit further up there is a large vegetable garden for personal consumption measuring almost 1000 square feet. . The location is really special. You feel like you are miles away from anyone yet downtown Cotacachi is only a 10-minute ride away. Also well known for its leather goods and handicrafts, Cotacachi has seen a steady increase in tourism and foreign investment over the last several years. The town center has multiple coffee shops, small restaurants, leather shoppes, amongst other small businesses. The cobblestoned 10 de Agosto Street (also known as “Leather Street”) is a fantastic representation of the plethora of opportunities that can be had. . The population of Cotacachi has also been on the rise with now over 20,000 inhabitants of which there is a large Expat percentage. Cotacachi’s elevation (7933 feet) contributes in part to the wonderful springlike climate year-round which ranges from 55-75 degrees (F). There is a large indigenous population in Cotacachi and the surrounding areas making for a vibrant cultural experience. . Cotacachi is located about an hour and a half from Quito, Ecuador’s capital and hub for shopping, medical facilities, educational and cultural experiences. An attractive plus is the award-winning international airport in Quito which offers connecting flights to Ecuador’s two other international airports (Manta and Guayaquil) as well as popular local destinations such as Cuenca. . We will be happy to proportion additional information to qualified buyers. . Welcome Home!! Cotacachi: You know you want to be here.
