Town/City Information


Although located just 35 minutes from Loja, the first thing you will notice upon your descent into Malacatos Valley is the change in temperature.  Green, lush landscapes and an average daily high of 77° F (25° C) make it the preferred second home and vacation destination of Loja.


Not widely inhabited by foreigners, Malacatos combines the feel of a more typical Ecuadorian pueblo with all the amenities of a destination town.  The local economy consists of family scale agriculture and tourist related businesses such as restaurants, lodging, and entertainment.
