Puembo (Outer Quito), Ecuador
Rincon de Puembo offers peaceful, atmospheric accommodations in close proximity to Quito's new airport on the city's outer edge. Just 15 minutes away, this quiet inn is a desirable alternative to most Quito hotels, which involve a 1-hour or longer drive to the airport. Originally a colonial hacienda, the inn's spacious rooms are individually decorated in a palette of warm earthen tones, each with king-size bed, cable TV, wireless Internet, international direct-dial phones and mini bar. Lush gardens, a swimming pool and Jacuzzi invite relaxation outdoors, while indoors, guests can take advantage of the fitness center or enjoy a round of pool in the recreation room. Two restaurants on site provide a wide selection of dining options.
