My girfriend and I stayed two days at the hacienda. The room was really beautiful and it was fun walking the grounds of this old estate. We ate family style in the informal dining room and the home-cooked meals were great. My lady friend had no riding experience other than a bad wreck as a child. The gave her a... More

Our Active Adventures - Tapir group stayed here for one incredible night. The Hacienda is well laid out in the midst of a beautiful landscape. The accommodations and hospitality are first-class. And despite the rainy weather, our horseback ride went without a hitch. Highly recommend staying here. Truly remarkable experience.

The hacienda is beautiful, food is delicious, rooms very comfortable, views of surrounding volcanic mountains stunning, hosts welcoming, and best of all, the horseback riding is unbelievably great. I rode with Gabriel, Rodrigo, and four other guests for a week. Horses are surefooted on the rocky climbs, scenery we rode past was fantastic, I have nothing but good to say... More

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.

My husband and I had a superb time at the Hacienda la Alegria. Maricio and Gabriel took pains to make us feel welcome, and the service otherwise was top notch. Our room was luxurious yet comfortable and welcoming with a terrific view of the mountains. The hacienda and grounds are gorgeous. The hacienda specializes in horseback adventures ranging from a...

Hacienda la Alegria is simply the most beautiful Andean Farm, in the middle of volcanoes and snow-tipped mountains. 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.
