Any questions? Nils from Socialbnb will be answering all your questions!
If you are coming from the north (Quito, Cotopaxi) or from the South Guayaquil or Chimborazo, or from the Amazonian region you need to take a taxi or public bus to the Comunidad Huasalata which is settled at north of Salasaka’s town, near/before to La Parroquia El Rosario. It is 7 minutes by car or bus, or 45 minutes walking. The guest house and the hostel and the project work place are settled in Comunidad Huasalata’s principle avenue entrance, next to the Asequia Albornos bridge. The reference is casa de eugenio espejo, “el cieguito”.
In the community Huasalata or in Salasaka you can be part of the sustainable agriculture program with one of the project families; you can have traditional medicine ritual experience with the local Yachak; you can join to traditional clothing making process; you can do pics with endemic leaves and flower petals and take them as souvenirs; you are going to learn, watch, and dance at the traditional celebration (Inti Raymi); and you will taste succulent local food prepared with the fresh vegetables from the gardens. Also, you can have trail activities, walk to visit principle holy sites and hike to the near mountains.
