Interaction with guests
We are always willing to help our guests with whatever you need. We, Sarah & Charlie, have been in the area a long time (28/38 years) and have lots of local knowledge. Anything you need just let us know, in person or by email. We can give you directions and maps for local hikes, organize horse treks into the mountains and help arrange mountain bike tours. Our color bird guide has photos of the most common species around the cabins.

Please ask if you would like a copy.

About the neighbourhood
While Vilcabamba is no longer the quaint little Andean village it once was, the countryside remains as unspoiled and stunning as ever. Nestled in the foothills of the Podocarpus National Park, Cabañas Rio Yambala is the ideal spot to enjoy Vilcabamba's picture-book valleys & clear mountain rivers. Local trails lead to swim holes along the river, to local beauty spots & waterfalls, or into the heart of the mountains, to the edge of the cloud forest and the Podocarpus National Park - Vilcabamba's best spot for hiking, horse trekking & birding!
Getting around
We are 4 km's from the center of Vilcabamba, in the upper reaches of the valley, reached by a dirt road. There are plenty of stores and restaurants in Vilcabamba but not much further out, so it is advisable to eat or get a few groceries before coming up if you are arriving late. It is a beautiful and culturally interesting 45 minute to 1 hour walk to Vilcabamba, or a 15 minute $3.50 taxi ride. We can call a taxi for you whenever you need one. As the instigators of eco-tourism in Vilcabamba we have a wealth of knowldege about hiking and horsetrecking in the area, birding, visiting the Podocarpus National Park and general activities in the area. Geographically the Vilcabamba valley is located on the western slopes of the continental divide
