Community Involvement


We believe that tourism can have a positive impact on the local population. Our idea is: if Llullu Llama grows, our community should grow together with us. Therefore we have set up a Community Fund, which is used to support local initiatives. Creating jobs for locals and applying a strict “buy local” policy are also amongst our objectives.

The highlight of the Quilotoa Loop!

There is an amazing sense of community with everyone crowding around the fire with a glass of wine at night to trade stories and everyone had tips for us on our next destinations. The village of Isinlivi has so much heart too and we loved talking to the apprentices at the artisan woodworking company, Don Bosco. Llulu Llama is a MUST STAY for anyone doing the Quilotoa loop!

Magical Place in the Andes

Stayed 3 nights in this wonderful hostal. Our cottage with mountain views was so tranquil, with its wood burning fireplace, balcony, wood beams and interesting glasswork in the windows. Our provided breakfasts and dinners were delicious and wholesome. The staff were very friendly and helps us organize some local activities.

Our favorite hostel in Ecuador

We really did not expect to find such a well-designed, cozy, homely and welcoming place to stay up here in the quiet village of Isinlivi. Fireplaces, wooden floors, comfy sofas, an excellent home-cooked three course dinner around a table with fellow hikers, amazing views, piping hot showers, the best breakfast offering we’ve had in South America, and excellent maps for the next day of hiking.
