LOVE TO LEARN

Nature, coffee, chocolate, and healthy herbs—it doesn’t get much better than this until you add in treasure hunts and historical parks. Hotel del Parque offers opportunities to feast and frolic that are sure to enrich your mind, body, and soul.



IMMERSED IN NATURE

Discover our wildlife sanctuary, where rare and endangered species like the giant harpy eagle and caimans live among the mangroves and exotic plants. The hotel’s concierge can also arrange for a private guided tour of the animal sanctuary and grounds.


INTRODUCTION TO COFFEE EXPERIENCE

If you love coffee, you’ll love our coffee experience in which you get to grips with the plant, the process, and the art of roasting coffee. The textures and aroma of one of the finest coffees in the world stays with you long after you try your hand at roasting your own with the help of our chef. You can even take home a pound of your unique creation.


SAVOUR THE WORLD’S FINEST CHOCOLATE

Seek out and pick your own cacao pods and watch as your beans are transformed into artisanal chocolate using our traditional methods. Set in a 120-year-old landowner’s house, you’ll find the world’s finest cacao beans and experience chocolate tasting like never before. Of course, taking the end product home is fundamental to the experience. 


EXPLORE OUR ECUADORIAN HEALING HERB GARDEN

Ecuadorians have centuries of traditional folk medicine wisdom passed down through the generations. In fact, over 900 plants are used for herbal medicine throughout the country. The team at Hotel del Parque is glad to show you around our herb and botanical gardens and educate you on traditional medicine. We can even create personal infusions to cure your ailments.


CHILDREN’S SCAVENGER HUNT

Hotel del Parque children’s scavenger hunts are fun and educational! Your children explore the gardens and take photos when they’ve spotted a checklist of rare plants and wildlife. Their discoveries can be printed to share and enjoy when they return to the hotel. We can even arrange for a private tour of the animal sanctuary and grounds just for your kids.
