HOSTERIA SUMAK PAKARI- You want to see coffee plantations, subtropical climate, and ruins from the earlier times? Sumak Pakari has it all and even more. Behind the big gate awaits you a pool, restaurant and private rooms with many necessities.
Sumak Pakari offers first-class treatment with a neat ambient all around it. A football and a volleyball field are located just as you walk through a lush field of flowers you might not have seen before. The landscaping has a comforting atmosphere including palm trees, a small succulent garden, and other subtropical flowers.
The private suites include jacuzzi, flatscreens, and internet. Right behind the hotel, a trailhead starts that will give you the first peaks of the subtropical nature. For a longer walk, you can walk through the coffee plantations to las Toalas from the main road. Additionally, Tulip is a site of the ruins of the Yumbo peoples. This tribe came to the Sacred Valley of Tulipe around 800 BCE leaving behind an interesting collection of archaeological remains. If that is not yet enough to disconnect from the busy streets in Quito, maybe you want to grab one of the bikes provided by Sumak Pakari and go for a bike ride.
As you come back from your hike, you can take a quick jump in a nice clean pool back at the hotel, after that just dry off and get ready for the local specialties offered in the restaurant.
Lastly, Tulipe offers everything you need, with a few restaurants, a shop and a bus service it can even be reached by public transport. Already the drive by itself makes this visit unforgettable.
