The space

Land of the Sun Hotel & Spa was built in 1834 and has all the charm of the era with all the modern amenities of today.

No other hotel in this area has a sauna and massage room to pamper their guests, along with a masseuse on call 24/7.

This hotel is regularly visited by past guests just to show their companions the Spanish architecture including the arched doorways and outdoor courtyard with dining for 24 under umbrellas for the sun or the rain. There is also seating for 50 in both the inside dining room and the lecture hall.

In addition we have the Fireplace Room for formal occasions and just plain relaxation. The guests can be served on fine china with gold goblets with champagne flutes to match; perfect for formal get togethers.

Other things to note

The most walked street of downtown is affectionately called “leather street”. That’s not it’s official name but leather goods is what nearly every store on the street sells. Cotacachi is well known for it’s leather goods. You can find bags of all sizes and colors, boots, shoes, jackets, ponchos, pants, etc, etc. There are a couple of stores that also carry saddles and tack for horses and chaps, whips and spurs for the riders. Many stores have the workshop in the back and you can meet the person who makes the things in the store.
At one end of leather street is the market and the bus depot. At the market you can find fresh fruits, veggies, and flowers every day of the week.

My wife and I spent a week with Morgan and TJ at the Land of the Sun Hotel . First the staff at the hotel was fantastic and helpful. They were always there to help us and always polite and patient. The food was fresh and breakfast was always delicious. The hotel has had some recent renovations and was very comfortable for us. Cotacachi is a wonderful place to visit and I would not hesitate to recommend staying here. I'm sure we will visit them again.

We had a great stay at Land of the Sun! The room was clean and comfortable. The shower was nice and hot. We enjoyed a big breakfast and were thankful that the hosts let us leave our luggage at the hotel after we checked out, so that we could go shopping. Thanks for a great stay!

I really enjoyed my stay at Land of the Sun in Cotacachi. The hotel was beautiful and the room was rustic but comfortable. A bit of street noise from the passing vehicles, but that is very common in all of Ecuador in our experience. The full breakfast was awesome as well.

My stay at the Land of the Sun was wonderful. Morgan (Carter) is an excellent host. They really went above and beyond to help me out in multiple ways. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast and coffee are good. The room was very comfortable and clean! I also ate dinner once here and the food was good. The hotel is near the main plaza so easy walking everywhere. I would recommend Land of the Sun to guests as an affordable, safe and comfortable stay in Cotacachi.
