Getting to the Riolindo Farm

Our Riolindo Coffee Lodge is located In Cuellaje, four to five hours north of the Quito Airport by car.

Bus: We can give you directions for taking the bus to the north Quito bus station and then to Otavalo. The bus from Otavalo to Cuellaje brings you within a half-mile of our farm.  You can take a taxi or simply walk 20 minutes to the farm. You can also catch a bus  from Quiroga (near Cotacachi) to Apuela for $3.50 and then take a taxi from Apuela to the farm for $11.00.

Taxi: A taxi directly from the Quito Airport to Cotacachi is $60 and then to the coffee farm is an additional $70. If you arrive in Quito during the night, you may want to stay in a hotel near the airport or travel two hours to Cotacachi to spend the night, before continuing on to the coffee farm the next day.

Contact Freddy at WhatsApp 593 98 004 0538 or email him at transporterfj@hotmail.com  He speaks both English and Spanish.

Van: A larger group may find the van more economical.  We can connect you with a van company that transports eight people from Quito to the farm for $180.  If you arrive during the night, you may want to stay at an airport hotel and take the van the next day.

We work closely with this taxi driver and this van company because they are very familiar with the Cuellaje area. They are both located in Cotacachi.
