Gratuities - How does tipping work?
Tipping is at the discretion of each guest. Should guests wish to tip El Saltamontes staff for quality service, The Lodge prefers guests to do so in the form of a lump sum, to be given to the head guide at the end of the week. In this way, guests can be assured that all the guides and staff will receive a fair portion. Most guests choose to tip about 10% of the value of their stay.
Electricity - Can I plug in my electronics?
The Lodges power is supplied by a private hydro-electric turbine, which generates power 24 hours a day. ELECTRICITY IS 220 VOLTS AT THE OUTLET. Guests will need a transformer to run appliances rated for 110 volts from North America.
Can I drink the water?
The water supply is taken directly from a high, snow-fed, mountain spring. It is pure and drinkable from the tap. Bottled water is also provided.
