Find the road to 'Cuicocha' in 'Cotacachi', stay on that road until you reach the entrance to the lagoon.

There you'll see that the road splits in 2. Take the road on the left to 'Intag' and 'Termas de Nangulvi'.

Stay on that road for about 60 km.

You'll pass a town called 'Apuela', we are about 3 miles after that town on the left hand side of the road.
