A GOOD HOSTEL IN MACAS :  NICE SPOT IN THE MIDDLE OF MACAS  Hostal Casa Blanca.   Trust me on this one, you'll be breathing straight mold if you go somewhere else. And  You are across the street from the best restaurants in Macas and couple blocks from a big market where it will be easy to hire a truck everyday for different missions in the Area. Even if you choose to run the Upper Upano you may want to stage here cuz there is nowhere to stay up in the little towns of 9 de Octubre or Zuñag.
