 The community Yunguilla is located in an area of cloud forest approximately an hour’s drive from the north of Quito.

Option 1 (public transport)

To get from Quito to Calacali take a metrobus (Av. America) to the Ofelia station in the north of Quito, here you can take a bus to Calacali.

To get from Calacali to Yunguilla you should hire a car or pick-up truck ($4.00) from Calacali’s central park.

Option 2 (public transport and walking)

From the Ofelia station in the north of Quito there are also inter provincial buses that travel to the north west (the names of the bus companies are Minas, Cayambe, Otavalo…).  You can take one of these buses and get off at the Yunguilla turn off on the main road.  The turn off is around 300m from the old toll station or you can ask the driver to let you know where that is.  From there you can reach the community on foot, the walk takes around 1 hour.
