for Getaway With Friendsby Joni
Wonderful Cultural ExperiencePosted Feb 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stopped in Guamote Thursday morning on our way from Banos to Cuenca to experience the indigenous market that we had read so much about. We were not sure how to get to the hotel from our bus, so we asked a young man for directions and he kindly walked us to our destination. We were greeted by our wonderful hostess--a long-time volunteer at Inti Sisa. She gave us a brief tour and shared with us the history and purpose of their work in Guamote. She and her staff were wonderful and we enjoyed the simple but delicious meals they prepared and the wonderful accommodations they provided (they were in the middle of adding more lovely guest rooms!). A highlight for us was visiting the classroom where dozens of little ones greeted us with songs and sent us off with hugs--they were so precious! The market itself was like stepping back in time--it was wonderful to get a glimpse into the lives and culture of the Kichwa people. I highly recommend a stay at Inti Sisa!
