Casa del Lago - Hotel Puerto Ayora - Ecuador

The Casa del Lago is part of an effort by owner Elena Albarado to offer tourists alternatives that emphasize social and cultural responsibility. Suites are rented on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis. All have private terraces with gardens, fully-stocked kitchens, WiFi, TV with cable, and stylish architectural design and furnishings. Recycled glass fragments in window frames play with incoming light; hand-painted tiles add flair to showers and staircases; and wild fabrics give the walls, ceilings and beds a spicy character. The residence is adjacent to the Casa del Lago Café Cultural (Monday-Saturday 7 a.m.-7 p.m.) and looks out on the spectacular Laguna Las Ninfas. The restaurant serves vegetarian food and organic Galápagos coffee. Casa del Lago's owner can also arrange custom-designed tours for student groups and other parties interested in educational tourism. Tours visit local hot-spots, farms and residences, and generate proceeds that directly benefit Santa Cruz residents.
