How to get there

Public transport by buses from Quito to Hoja Blanca is possible, but difficult. Access by car usually requires 4WD vehicles, as roads are very rough, but you must have a permit signed by Fundación de Conservación Jocotoco of Quito to pass the barge to cross the river in Puerto Nuevo. The trip from Quito takes about 5-6 hours. See the instructions how to get there from Fundación Jocotoco.
