The Northern Highlands Hotels

Puerto Lago Country Inn


  • Secluded, good value


  • Chilly at night

Fodor's Review

Volcanic peaks form a dramatic backdrop for this lakeside country inn just a few miles southeast of Otavalo. The view from the restaurant, built out over the lake, is enough to warrant a stay here. Don't miss the panfried trout, served head and all. Bungalow-style rooms are spacious, with brick walls, wood-beam ceilings, and cozy fireplaces. You can rent a rowboat or kayak, or take an excursion on a festive pontoon boat with live music. Breakfast and dinner are included in the rate.
