“An unforgettable weekend amongst the stars!”
I’m an Ecuadorian that has been living abroad, but when planning my wedding I wanted to come home. While our ceremony and reception would take place at a near-by Hacienda, we contacted 4Volcanoes so the immediate family could have some space and peacefulness on the days leading up to the wedding. This was the best decision we could have made!

As beautiful as the pictures of the lodge and area are they can’t fully capture the awe of this place. The design of the house deserves a review of it’s own–it’s rooftop views of snow-covered Cotacachi, wide windows, and labyrinth garden. We loved the serene feel of the villa in contrast to the chaotic movement in preparation down the street for the wedding. The night before the wedding we invited people over to relax from the week’s tours and planned a parillada (Ecuadorian BBQ) filled with singing, music, bonfire, canelazo (typical hot Ecuadorian drink), and a hike up Taita Imbabura. The owners, Christina and Thomas, organized every detail for us and offered some really good suggestions for making everyone feel at home. The atmosphere was so inviting and the food delicious, people who had only met a few days before were laughing and singing together. Everyone loved the food-Thomas meat impressed even the toughest critics in the group- the Brazilians!
