From the century-old family home & farm to the breathtaking beauty of a horse ride through the Andes, you will never forget your time here. Gabriel and his family help even the most inexperienced horse riders learn to ride and experience the beauty from a viewpoint you've never had before.

Surrounded by nature, green pastures and flower gardens, this farm is an old Hacienda that has been kept as original as possible, making the experience even more authentic. It really feels like being in a colonial romantic novel, while taking advantage of... More

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
