My wife and I visited Cusin about 10 years ago and absolutely loved the romantic atmosphere and character of the place. The hiking was also outstanding.

Amazing history & the owners are happy to discuss and share the stories behind it all. The calm of a monastic retreat permeates the entire property, yet there is an excitement with all there is to...

Hacienda Cusin is an oasis of peace after spending time in a busy world. You will find amazing gardens filled with flowers, hummingbirds and tranquility. Cozy rooms with warm fireplaces, common areas full of history, great food and friendly people make this a true oasis. Staying at Hacienda Cusin was true experience in Ecuadorian hospitality and history.

I very rarely take the time to write reviews, but Hacienda Cusin truly inspired me, compelled me to write one. It feels as if you are walking through another time, and the gardens are some of the most gorgeous I have ever seen - I felt like I was walking through a fantasia. This place has been lovingly preserved and... More

On request a hot water bottle... More

Wow! What an unbelievable place... I felt like I stepped back in time into a movie. Gardens, hummingbirds, ponds, trees, a stable with animals, fireplaces, a monastery, I can go on! This place is a secret at every turn and kids will be enchanted. My 6 year old LOVED it and my husband and I did too, at night! Service... More
