Deservedly renowned and respected, Runa Tupari has partnered with indigenous, mestizo and Afro-Ecuadorian rural communities to offer sightseeing, hiking, horseback-riding and biking trips. Rural homestays are $25 per night, while various volunteering options cost $15 per day and include room and board.

Offbeat options include a bumpy 2000m mountain-bike descent into the Intag’s tropical cloud forest ($85 per person) and a round-trip 10-hour hike up ‘Mama’ Volcán Cotacachi (4939m; $70 per person). Runa Tupari can customize day- to week-long trips to meet every need and taste.

Not only does Runa Tupari have professional, reliable and enthusiastic guides, but they also offer everyday transportation services so that you can explore the region at your own pace.

It also has a little office in Cotacachi in 'El Convento,' a restaurant/cafe/bakery/fair-trade shop run by a local organization working with the disabled.
