Talk to the Expert

Maite Paz

I have been designing trips to my home country of Ecuador for over 20 years. Traveling itself has always felt like magic to me: my mind is always on travel, but my heart is forever in the Galapagos as it never fails to surprise me.

Hotel Mama Cuchara Overview

Enjoying a setting right in the heart of Quito’s UNESCO-protected historic center, Hotel Mama Cuchara is as evocative and characterful as the Ecuadorian capital itself. Once a Spanish colonial mansion, now meticulously restored as a high-end boutique hotel, accommodation is in modern ensuite rooms with a subtle blend of history and luxury: exposed beams and laurel oak headboards fuse with custom lighting and French doors opening up to fine city views. At the center of the property is La Plaza restaurant, offering a mouthwatering selection of dishes from across Ecuador’s 17 regions. A rooftop cocktail bar commands exemplary views across the city.
