its around $40 or so for a room, food is up to you, there are a few restaurants close by and a supermarket (very small, from memory) about 5 miles away, try and find another rider to split your costs

its a very cool place photos really do not do it justice at all

its about 2 kms from here

I got a free dry spot to sleep in the old church as long as I bought my food from the resturant.



The guy running the equator point runs the old hacienda and is a real nice fellow.



If you are looking for a fabulous New Year's Day meal I would go to this little place right down or up(I can't remember just watch for the signs) the Pan Am from the hacienda. I forget the name of the place but it's sign has the colors of a Holstein cow and is on the West side of the highway not too far from the equator you will find this place.

Wonderful food!

It's a shame I won't be around there to meet you guys, I am from Cayambe. I hope you'll have a nice time if you meet in Guachala hacienda, it's a nice place.
For a nice ride, I would go to the hot springs in Oyacachi (following the road towards and through Cangahua), about one and a half hours ride from the Hacienda. Easy ride to that indian town.

Hola,
I'm a french biker, with a little 250 Tornado.
I'm heading to Equador, actually in Cajamarca in Peru.
I find it's a nice idea, the new year on equator.
Perhaps I'll try to join you.
I'll give more details when I arrive near Cayambe.
Suerte

.../... : I'm sorry, my english is very bad, y mi espanol tambien !
