Hacienda La Alegria is quite simply a fantastic place to spend a holiday. The owners are incredibly generous and hospitable. The rooms are beautiful and they all have an amazing view across the gardens and the volcanoes in the distance. They have about 50 horses, which they look after meticulously and they're all in excellent condition. I spent seven days... More

I specifically picked this location for it's beautiful scenery, and reputation for wonderful, extended horse rides into the surrounding mountains. We were very pleased with everything about our stay here. The rooms are wonderful....newly remodeled, and very lovely with wood stoves,... More
