Welcome to Hacienda Hosteria Chorlavi

Find yourself in “The Nest of Love,” where, five centuries ago, the great Inca Emperor Huayna Capac fell in love with Pacha, the Princess of the Caranquis Tribe. Hacienda Chorlavi is a beautifully renovated country estate surrounded by mighty volcanic mountains. It features large comfortable rooms, some with fireplaces, an outdoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, fitness center, spa services, and delicious, fresh foods. On its beautiful grounds, you will find plenty of peaceful places for deep meditation, listening to bird song, or relaxing on a hammock under the big palm trees along the flowing creek.

Getting to the Summit

Our drivers will pick you up upon your arrival to Quito Airport and bring you to the Hacienda beginning on Saturday, June 15th. You will also be returned to the airport at the conclusion of the Summit. (Chorlavi is a 90 minute ride from Quito's Airport). This service is included in your Summit Tuition Fee.

If you already in Ecuador you can meet us at Hacienda Chorlavi on your own or contact us if assistance is needed.

Our gift to you.

When you register for the Andes Summit, we will send you a copy of the bestselling Shamanic Healing, written by Andes Summit founder Itzhak Beery. It describes Andean shamanic medicine in detail through engaging stories. It will prepare you to fully experience the Shamans, their teachings, and healing practices.

“Itzhak beautifully describes an extraordinary personal journey that upends our conventional understanding of medicine and healing. This brilliant book expands our possibilities for health and healing. A must read to be prescribed to all seeking healing, as well as for their health professionals.”
