A day in La Alegria won't ever be forgotten, the family who owns and runs this gorgeous hacienda makes you feel like old time friends in a few hours. You won't regret spending a day or a week here.
Picture a gorgeous property (we did not stay overnight but we will come back one day to sleep) in a gorgeous landscape, excellent food and drinks, amazing horse riding to some of the most beautiful places one can imagine (those volcanoes among clouds!), and all in the company of gentle yet experienced guides who make you feel special, make you feel home.
I have been to many a fantastic place and I have riden horses in beautiful places. The horses here are the best trained I have ever seen and they'll adapt to your needs, whatever they may be. But what makes Alegria stand out (far out) is the people. The owner-manager, Gabriel, and his daughter, Serena who handles internet logistics. The cow-boys or 'chagras' as they are called in Ecuador, like a terrific young man called Rodrigo. But first and foremost, Mr. Mauricio.
El Senor Mauricio, brother of Gabriel, is a Gentleman with capital G, with a vast world culture as UNESCO manager for many years. If you're lucky enough to meet and ride with Mauricio, he'll show you what Ecuadorian hospitality is about. All I can say, dear Mauricio, is GRACIAS! And hope to see you again! My house is your house as well!
