We love to discover places like Terra Esperanza! It is always a great pleasure to meet people with loads of passion, devoted to their job and eager to grow and develop. Therefore it was such a great experience to stay with Emerson- the owner of the hostel and his family who turned out to be kind and hospitable people.
Terra Esperanza is located few kilometers away from the city of Ibarra. The neighborhood is very calm and charming so you can be sure that you will have a great rest.
The place is very colorful and full of life, on every wall you can find a little piece of art left by travelers and hostel’s friends. Our room had a window overlooking the patio and our bed was very comfortable.
We have spent our evenings in the common room talking in front of the fireplace and exchanging stories with other guests. In the morning we were enjoying the sun having a delicious breakfast and a cup of coffee.
Terra Esperanza is not only a hostel. It is also a handicraft shop where Emerson and his family produce the most beautiful clothes, jewelry, leather bags and much more! Everything of the best quality!
Emerson is also a very experienced mountain guide who led tourists and experienced travelers and climbers through many Ecuadorian mountains. If you feel like conquering one, you can be sure to be safe and have fun with Emerson. He will provide you with all the gear and prepare you for the adventure.
We had a wonderful time in Terra Esperanza and we are very thankful and happy that we could meet Emerson and his family!!
