Inn Land of the Sun is Cotacachi’s oldest hotel located in a 180 year old colonial building with open air court yard just off Cotacachi’s main plaza and next to Cotacachi’s largest Cathedral.  Here is the hotel.

The hotel was originally created by Sr. Hugo Cordova who was governor of the Province at a time when the village was in dire economic doldrums.  The  building had been the home of the Cordova family and center of a great ranchero in the colonial days.   Sr. Cordova opened the hotel to attract wealthier Ecuadorians from Quito to vacation in Cotacachi and bring progress to what was then an isolated village.
