We spent two nights in a beautiful spacious room. It was cold in the room but they do have a gas heater that eventually took the chill off of the room. They also have hot water in the shower and bathroom sink. After living here awhile, you know to not take these luxuries for granted.
Here are pictures of the entrance to Hosteria Dos Chorreras (which means "two waterfalls").
|Nestled among the mountains|
These pictures show the area where our room was. Very pretty sitting areas with amazing scenery to look at.
|This is the outside patio area, leading to ...|
|. . . this living room / sitting area. (This is directly outside of our room.)|
|Hallway leading to . . .|
|. . . the stairs that take you to the rest of the hotel.|
These are the views from our room:

|My guide, Cat|
|Me. This was a good opportunity to stop and catch my breath.|
(Hiking at 11,000 feet isn't easy!)
|High mountain lakes, and our turnaround point|
Inside the restaurant, there is a place to buy the local crafts. They are beautiful and very affordable.
|Panama Hats, of course. These are made in Ecuador, not Panama!|
|Scarves (very popular here). I bought two.|
Here are pictures from inside the restaurant. We were the only guests staying at the hotel, but on the weekends and on holidays, the restaurant is completely full.
