LOJ-SH-Jipiro park Loja Ecuador

Recreational Park Jipiro features replicas of famous buildings and sculptures from around the world, perfect for getting great vacation photos.


Nature lovers will love the lush greenery and wildlife at Podocarpus National Park, which is home to more than 100 lagoons and one of the largest forests of romerillos in the country.



Known as one of the best museums in Loja, Museo de la Musica is small but rich in information and artifacts that reflect the area’s musical history.



If you’re seeking a fountain of youth, Vilcabamba -the Sacred Valley of Longevity, is a  must-visit spot that’s not far from the hotel. Many of the area’s inhabitants have lived beyond 100 years old. Fresh mountain air, a stress-free lifestyle, mineral-rich drinking water,  and a diet high in antioxidants all contribute to long and healthy lives for the locals.
