      We have visited the Refugio at Guagua Pichincha several times. It has only been open on one visit. We learned that it is very important to contact the GAD in Lloa if you want to stay overnight. For our purposes, it was nice to have access to a bathroom, though primitive, on the visit that the facility was open.

      We give a four-star rating because, without the Refuge, the road from Lloa to this point would not be in decent condition at all. It enabled us to get close enough to the crater to hike to the rim. Without the road and the refuge, we would have had to make Lloa our starting point. I could not have hiked that distance from Lloa to the Refuge and back again in a single day.
