Around February 20, 2013… the new Quito airport goes into operation.   All Quito flights will automatically shift there.

Numerous locals have sent me a warning… traffic into Quito will be a mess so leave yourself a lot of time getting in, from and back out to the airport.

Ecuador Living has created three solutions for getting to and from the new Quito Airport.

La Marmite

New Quito Airport Solution #1: Stay within 10 minutes of the airport at La Marmite Hotel & Restaurant.   Chef Pierre Mordasini has created a hotel, rental and housing community about 20 miles from Quito  (45 minute drive) and eight minutes from the new airport.

The property is in a Swiss chalet style on over 10 acres of grounds so it is quiet and peaceful.  The chef offers French/Swiss food in his kitchen.

New Quito  Airport Solution #2:  Avoid Quito at Inn Land of the Sun in Cotacachi.  The new airport is north of Quito and much closer to Cotacachi… so much so that with the traffic difference… the Inn is almost as close in time as Quito hotels.   Meet and greet at the airport by a Cotacachi driver, low cost ($45).  This is an alternative to avoid Quito.  Overnight in Cotacahi and if you have a day enjoy the Crafts Trail:  leather village of Cotacachi,  the Otavalo markets, the weavings of Peguche.

Inn Land of the Sun (formerly Meson de las Flores) is the center of Cotacachi.

The hotel was donated to Land of the Sun Foundation by Gary & Merri Scott, Joe Cox to help promote the economy of Cotacachi and Ecuador and the new name reflects this connection.

All profits from the hotel are used to expand the economy in Ecuador or to provide scholarships to youth in Ecuador.
