I had the opportunity to spend a weekend with some friends, it´s was amazing i couldn´t imagine how authentic is this Hacienda with a great service, so much knowledge about horse back riding with a lot of patience if you have experience or not, the service is personalized all the time, all the environment is original and the rooms are a luxury in the middle of the mountain with an spectacular view, i couldn´t imagine a moment so enjoyable with a jacuzzi that was incredible after a wonderful day with a good company, the quality of the food was not only delicious but typical ecuadorian food to recharge our batteries.
This place works with a great agro-turism system to let us know to all the visitors how important is the land, the animals and the culture with a nice tour around the Hacienda, the Chagra Show was amazing specially when you have never seen that before so close with important information not only about this place, also about the mountains, the train and the people.
This is the best place to recommend in case that you want to have a different and authentic experience, Thanks all the staff specially to Gabriel for providing us an unforgettable stay and for sharing with us all your experiences.
