Alli shamuska kachun, bienvenido, welcome!
Welcome to our Inti Sisa Art Guesthouse, your home away from home located in the small village of Guamote in the center of the Ecuadorian Andes. It’s location, halfway between Cuenca and Quito makes it an ideal place to stop and visit. And not only to rest one’s head, but also to experience authentic Andean life by visiting the weekly Thursday market, visiting surrounding communities and the Chimborazo volcano. Our lovely staff will make sure you feel at home during your time in our comfortable guesthouse.
Guesthouse, foundation and local experience all in one
But Inti Sisa Art Guesthouse is more, as the Inti Sisa Art Guesthouse finances all activities of the Inti Sisa foundation. This foundation, which opened the doors of its educational center in 1999, has the vision to offer educational support to the underprivileged local people of Guamote and its surrounding, especially young girls and women. This is done by providing workshops, such as computer classes, sewing courses, musical classes, pre-school and English classes in the educational center in Guamote and also in the surrounding communities.
Please take a look around this website to find out more about all we have to offer.
Inti Sisa is a tourism enterprise with strong links to the local indigenous communities offering unique and authentic experiences to all our visitors.
Besides that, we are also an Educational Foundation. We create opportunities and promote sustainable development for, and with, the surrounding Indigenous communities: We work to empower, inspire and mobilize local people to effect real change.
We are a passionate and dedicated team looking to generate benefits for all.
Inti Sisa works to create and support an inter-cultural and inter-ethnic dialogue, helping to promote respect and understanding.
We want to be a transformer of experiences, supporting less privileged children, women and elderly people to improve their quality of life.
In addition we recognize and encourage the Indigenous community to honor and transmit the history of their culture, its traditions, values and legends.
Equality – Respect – Teamwork – Integrity – Honesty – Inclusion – Openness
