IS THERE A WAY OF GETTING TO CASA MOJANDA IF OUR PLANE ARRIVES LATE AT NIGHT?
You can be met at the airport and driven to Casa Mojanda directly by one of our trustworthy drivers. The transfer presently costs US $100 including taxes, up to three passengers.
For groups of five or six, the cost is $120. For larger groups wanting to share a van or bus, please inquire.
The drive takes between one hour and a half to two hours.
IF OUR FLIGHT LEAVES QUITO EARLY IN THE MORNING, IS IT NECESSARY THAT WE STAY IN QUITO THE NIGHT BEFORE?
All international flights require arrival at the airport two hours before the scheduled flight time. Some travelers find they must be at the airport between 5am and 7am. We offer the same transfer service back to the airport, also for a cost of US$100.
WHAT KIND OF WEATHER CAN WE EXPECT AT CASA MOJANDA? WHAT TYPE OF CLOTHES WILL WE NEED?
At Casa Mojanda, the climate is spring-like all year ‘round—in the 60’s and 70’s during the day and in the 50’s at night. Although there is a rainy season from November until May (minus December which is generally a sunny month) and a dry season from May until October, we usually expect a daily changing mixture of sun and clouds, even in the wetter and drier seasons. There is almost no variation in temperature from month to month. You can count on jeans and T-shirt weather, but don’t forget to bring a warm sweater, fleece or jacket. Click on our packing list above to get an idea of the most comfortable clothing to bring along. Also bear in mind that Otavalo is one of the best places to shop for sweaters, jackets, capes, shawls and ponchos.
