From Quito we picked up a rental car and drove to Hosteria Papagayo, a 180 year old hacienda turned hotel near Cotopaxi National Park, for a 3 night stay in the Andean highlands.
We live in Airbnbs almost full time as we travel the world. This year, we noticed that Airbnb had started defaulting to its Pay Less Up Front option for personal trips.
Three years of travel and over a hundred Airbnbs later, here are the ones we liked best. Cleanliness, design, value, location, and privacy are our top factors.
