Important notice

Gusts will need to take the road to Lago Cuicocha. Instead of going through the gates into the park, take the road to the left to Intag and continue another hour, approximately 25 km. El Refugio is at the bottom of a valley. When you come to a yellow church set in a schoolyard, you have reached Santa. Rosa. Take the road to the left of the school and drive less than 1 km to El Refugio.
