Can you imagine walking through ancient paths, listening to the river running down, while you let the perfumes of the jungle penetrate into your body?
Can you imagine relaxing in a Jacuzzi and look throughout the window, the largest variety of birds in the world?

Ruins of the extinct indian population Yumbo
The dense vegetation has hidden for centuries strange stone buildings, traces of the existence of a civilization that few know.
There are many questions and little is known about this mysterious tribe that existed before the Christian era. There are stories about encounters with the first Spanish colonizers, stolen mummies and buried treasures.
Just 300 meters from the hostel Sumak Pakari, are large pools of various forms which, according to archaeologists and historians, religious rituals were practiced by the Yumbo.
Wenn you walk through these constructions, the mystery and wonder is revealed through the vegetation. It’s a trip really worth recommending.
