Chilcabamba lodge in Ecuador

Chilcabamba Lodge, Ecuador

Our eight-day Adventurous Ecuador trip features a range of amazing accommodations, from the hot springs of Termas de Papallacta to the serene surrounds of Kuyana Amazon Lodge. Our pick of the bunch, however, might just have to be Chilcabamba Lodge. This rustic mountain lodge, set 3,480m (11,417ft) above sea level, blends traditional Ecuadorian homeliness with a touch of rural-weekend-away vibes. Everything here is built using local materials, with rustic decor offering a charming, unpretentious cosiness. Rooms are incredibly homely and equipped with ponchos, thick duvets and a wood-burning stove – perfect for fighting off the mountain chills. There’s also a main lodge with lounges to relax in, boasting views of the stunning Cotopaxi volcano in the distance, as well as a games room, outdoor bonfire and a trail around the area that leads to a stunning Cotopaxi viewpoint. The restaurant serves homemade Ecuadorian delights, and dinner here is best followed by a spot of stargazing around the campfire before bed.

Volcano Lodge and Springs, Costa Rica

Volcano Lodge and Springs, Costa Rica

There’s two things we love about volcanoes: firstly, they’re super cool and breathtakingly beautiful to look at; secondly, hot springs. This cosy tropical lodge in the heart of Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano National Park takes both of those things and turns it into a once-in-a-lifetime accommodation experience. The volcano itself dominates pretty much every vista you’ll enjoy all over the resort, from bedrooms to poolside views. Amid the sprawling botanical gardens, ripe for exploration, are a number of outdoor pools – one also features a swim-up bar – and a number of jacuzzis fed by the region’s natural geothermal hot springs. That means you can enjoy scenic views of Arenal volcano, while also enjoying the muscle-soothing bounties of its geological powers.
