Hacienda La Alegria is a fantastic place to spend time in the Pichincha area. We used it as a base for day hiking at Ruminahui Volcano, Iliniza Norte, and Quilotoa Crater. We did not ride horses, but drove to these sites to begin our hikes. The hacienda is centrally located to be within 1 1/2 hours from these hikes. The... More

There are no words to describe the wonderful experience we had with Alegria. We went already on 4 trips with Gabriel. And all of them were magnificent! The Chagra Ride with the Parade in Machachi, the Cotopaxi Ride, the Cloud Forest…. Our kids, some of our friends and ourselves enjoyed each of the horseback riding trips so much. It is... More

We just returned home after spending 5 glorious days at the Hacienda La Alegria. I have nothing but high praise for this place. Our only regret is that we did not spend enough time here.

What a most wonderful day! We took our tween daughter and her 4 friends to Hacidena Alegria for riding around the area for a few hours for her birthday. She and her friends were so happy. The owner took the time to make sure everyone was safe on the horses. The girls loved the llama and collie puppies also. The... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our honeymoon and could not recommend it highly enough. Patty, Gabriel and their family and staff made us feel so welcome during our stay, they asked us to treat the place like home and in turn they treated us like family. Sitting by the fire with a...

Visited in September. We were booked into here by our trip guide and liked everything about Hacienda La Alegria but the cold dining room and food. The dining room was freezing with some people choosing to keep their coats on to eat. The stove was only lit about 30 minutes before dinner so had nothing like enough time to warm... More

We were with a group of 10 people and were picked up from downtown Quito by Gabriel and companion. The arrival at the hacienda was lovely, a beautiful old home with well decorated bedrooms and living room. We went horseback riding and for every individual they had a matching horse. We went out for a 3,5 hour trip in a... More

I stayed two weeks on a horseback vacation in July 2014. Hacienda la Alegría is truly a little corner of paradise. The charming century-old house is a perfect place to relax while enjoying the view of the surrounding mountains, but also to discover the atmosphere of a working dairy farm. The rooms are beautiful, elegantly decorated and very comfortable. Above... More

Hacienda La Alegria defies translation into mere words. It is so unimaginably beautiful. And it is real! A real working hacienda. Not a "made up" "boutique hotel." This is a lived in home, with added guest rooms. The owners, Paty and Gabriel, open this home to us, the travelers, and share their extraordinary lives with us. They certainly don't "have... More
