Hans and his family are such lovely people. This is the best place to stay before/after the border. The finca is beautiful with horses, a garden, fruit trees, washing and cooking facilities - everything is so well taken care of, you can see the love in the details. Hans really went above and beyond to help me - from answering emailed questions about visas and the border, to accompanying me to various mechanics and shops around Ibarra to help me get everything I needed taken care of with trusted people he recommended. While I stayed with Hans I met other Overlanders who were all very nice/friendly/helpful people. It was a pleasure to soak up their knowledge and sit around the camp fire hearing stories of people’s journeys. I wish I could rate Sommerwind higher than 5 stars, it is a true gem and it’s Hans and his positive, easy-going, helpful attitude that made me stay for over a week. So thankful I stopped and made this place home for a short time, I will definitely be coming back.
