The Hotel Refugio Tambopaxi. Its name comes from two Quichua words. Tambo means Paradero and Paxi means Moon, "Paradero de la Luna", the only eco-tourist complex within a National Park at 3,720m above sea level. A magical place surrounded by volcanoes, great variety of flora and fauna, the sound of the wind and at night a sky bathed by stars in the light of the moon.
It was built in 2000 with the purpose of being a meeting place for andinistas as a refuge where they can acclimate, rest and feed themselves. The style of Tambopaxi is rustic and has been used several elements to achieve that both interior and exterior are conjugated in a single style. To give greater resistance, the walls were made of hay bales lined with bahareque and the lying is covered with chasqui (pumice stone) to isolate the sound, and are lined with bricks superimposed under pressure and the roof has straw from the moor.
We have large windows in both the downstairs and the upstairs to enjoy the view at any time of day but to avoid cooling, has double glazed in each one.
