El Refugio de Intag Cloud Forest Lodge

Comuna Santa Rosa, via Cuicocha, Zona de Intag

One and a half hour drive from Otavalo. From Otavalo take the road toward Quiroga/Cuicocha.  Shortly before Cuicocha there is a left fork (labeled) toward Intag.  From the community labeled Las Delicias begins your final descent to Santa Rosa.  At a school yard with a small church is a sign for Cabanas El Refugio, pointing left.  (Just after this the road curves sharply right to cross a bridge.  If you cross the bridge, you’ve missed the turnoff to Refugio.)  The lodge is one-quarter mile on the right side.
