I was looking for a fun and meaningful experience for myself and my 12 year old daughter (a horseback rider). It was a geography lesson and cultural lesson and an amazing adventure, all wrapped into one. We had the pleasure of spending 8 days on horseback with Gabriel traveling through the Cloud Forest and Avenue of Volcanoes. The horses were... More

Gabriel and Patty are wonderful hosts, and this hacienda is gorgeous. The rooms are wonderfully decorated, clean, and the views from each room are of a lush green valley with a volcano on the horizon. The food is delicious, varied for individual tastes, and plentiful. The service is stellar. The gardens surrounding the hacienda are like a botanical garden. I... More

First of all the Haciënda itself is very cosy, the rooms are nice and spacious with great views over the volcanoes, the... More

The Hacienda is a lovely property and very reasonably priced. If you choose to go on one of the multi-day rides you will stay at a few different places along the way. All except one meets the standards of the Algeria. Although intent is to build a better facility at one stop on the Cotopaxi trail, it hasn't been done... More

The owners are extremely nice, thoughtful and willing to go the extra step to make sure our stay was a good one. The Hacienda itself has beautiful grounds including a nice rose and flower... More

During my time at la alegria, I felt the most relaxed. In the middle of nowhere, the hacienda has beautiful horses that you can take to other places such as the cloud forest, other parts of the country, and also to other countries like Peru. It also has a kitchen which I was served spaghetti and beer for dinner, fruit... More
