Equador; Zuleta; hacienda
Choose from 17 unique rooms, each with its own fireplace.
Stay in one of Ecuador's most famous and historically important haciendas.
Sumptuous, home made food, much sourced from the hacienda's own grounds with its farm-to-plate ethos.
Wonderful walks, horse rides and nature right on the hacienda's doorstep.
Beautiful cloud forest to explore, with a chance to see spectacled bears.
Cooking, cheese making and embroidery classes showcase traditional Ecuadorian life.
Outstanding. Saw an pygmy owl, condors and a spectacled bear - all on a 3-hour walk from the hacienda.
Probably the most comfortable and welcoming hacienda I've stayed in.

Our guide (Santiago Mata) was a strong positive factor — knowledgable and very helpful, but not intrusive; flexible and anticipatory of any problems that might have been encountered.
Accommodations were fine — some more interesting than others, but all more than adequate. We spent relatively little time in the hotels and generally stayed in each only one night, so cannot give a critical evaluation, but overall, they were all fine. Food was also fine. We ate “local” foods as much as possible, generally with our guide’s advice, and had several very nice meals in the more urban areas. Overall organization worked our just fine for us.
