Located in the Otavalo Region just two hours north of the capital Quito, Hacienda Zuleta is a colonial working family run farm which has been in the family of former president Galo Palza Lasso for over a hundred years. The hacienda has a peaceful atmosphere and guests can relax in the fabulous gardens, cosy living and reading rooms and inner courtyard. There are 15 beautifully decorated bedrooms, each with their own fire place and private bath. The farm produces a wealth of organic foods, from artichokes and quinoa to dairy and meats, and guests can enjoy home cooked meals lovingly prepared by the family during their stay.
There are a great variety of activities available at Hacienda Zuleta, with horseback riding being their speciality. There are extensive mountain trails for trekking and mountain biking, and horse drawn carriages available for visits around the hacienda. Guests are also invited to visit the Andean Condor rehabilitation centre, as well as various education and conservation projects around the area.
The warmth and hospitality of the Plaza family provides guests with an intimate and authentic Ecuadorian experience, making you feel like one of the family.
