Igor's place is just a fairytale. Being hidden in just several hours by bus from Quito, it's really beautiful and peaceful. I spent my best time playing with big dogs, feeding the donkeys, watching the parrots and especially enjoying the view from the dinning room - the mountains covered with trees, and the clouds on my eye level.
Just in several minutes walk you can find an enterance to the waterfalls, where you can swim.
Highly recommended for those who's tired of big cities.
My husband and I stayed a night at Finca Figaro this past May and our time there couldn't have been better. We enjoyed fresh organic fruits and vegetables and, along with an assortment of animals and parrots, we weren't plagued by a dull moment. Apart from the typical activities of farm life, Finca Figaro also offers beautiful trails through banana orchards, sunflower, and coffee fields. The guest house also was perfectly accomodating and included a bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen/dining room though I believe another bedroom room is now available. Entirely, the farm is altogether captivating, charming, and relaxing! We highly recommend it to any traveler or family passing by!
I stayed at Finca Figaro for only a few days, and fell in love with the place - wish I could have stayed longer! It's a delightful tierra; the fertile ground is covered in banana trees, organic edibles, and contented animals running all over. It's beautiful beautiful beautiful, and well-maintained and furnished, so you're sure to be extremely comfortable and taken care of (the owner and workers are incredibly friendly and accomodating. Together we had a lovely time conversing, cooking, and exploring the land, playing with the animals, and learning about birds, plants, bagels!
Thank you Igor and Eli for a wonderful time, hope I can come back to visit you someday1
The days I spent there were truly "peaceful paradise "
The best food I had in ecuador, loved all the animals
Which gave us fresh eggs, milk. Cheese, yogurt .
Look forward to returning and having those oatmeal
Pancakes made with yeast, to die for.
The owner Igor was so helpful.
