This hacienda sits on what remains of a 15th Century Incan palace, and the walls of precisely carved stone from that place have been incorporated into the dining room, sitting room, a small chapel, and even some guest rooms. The hacienda courtyard includes Spanish colonial features as well, making this a unique amalgamation of architectural styles. To top it off,... More

We spent two nights here in Nov 2013. The place looks gorgeous and the setting with Cotopaxi is fantastic. Our room in the main building was also beautiful and with a big fireplace that kept it warm during the nights. Then the problems (and they were huge!). The owner of the place was away during our stay and the service... More

We stayed at this hacienda for 2 days (1 night and left late the next day for a midnight flight home). We had a standard room with 1 fireplace for heat but the fireplace seemed very inefficient and we were cold all night. We even ran out of firewood at 3am :-P The hot water bottle to warm up your...

We stayed here for 3 nights. We had booked a suite, but beware there are 2 suites not in the main building. We stayed there for the first 2 nights. Although the room was spacious, there were no fireplaces like in the main house (it's quite cold at night, and rains a lot so the trip -though not far -... More

This is a gorgeous ranch in a fantastic location, very close to Cotopaxi national park. The site used to be an Inca building, and still has the charming mortarless stone walls mixed with 17th and “21st” century construction. Some parts are still incomplete with rebar sticking out of the top of a few buildings and half-finished sections. You can reach... More

Our rooms were extraordinary (actually 'suites' as we received a free upgrade) with huge fireplaces to warm them !! We liked this hacienda for its charm, for the quality of the accomodation and the food, for the setting as we kept looking at the Cotopaxi through the window of the living room. We took 2 of the activities they suggest... More

My stay at San Agustin De Callo was defined by the utter lack of professional attention to my needs as a solo guest. When I arrived I was the only guest who required check-in at this small inn. The recently hired person in charge of doing so had no idea what to do. It took half an hour to get... More

My wife and I visited the hacienda for lunch while on a day trip to the Cotopaxi Volcano. The hacienda is very authentic colonial establishment built within amazing Inca ruins. Lunch was typically Andian and very good. The views are spectacular. the staff was very welcoming and presented a surprise visit of 15 llamas. My visit to the hacienda will... More

After a day at Cotopaxi Volcano we arrived down a dirt road in the middle of seemingly nowhere to this stunning hacienda. Other reviewers have covered the basics but in most rooms you will have a portion of Inca wall uncovered along with open fireplace and frescoed walls, free local chocolates and a huge bathroom. Top it off with a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since the 15th century San Agustin de Callo has served as an Inca fortress and palace and Augustinian monastery and was also temporary home of the French Geodesic Mission (1742) whose scientific work helped change the shape of the planet. Other famous visitors include the brilliant German scientist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt and English mountain climber Edward Whymper. In 1912 the Hacienda was purchased by General Leonidas Plaza Gutierrez, leader of the liberal Revolution and two-time President of Ecuador.With only eleven rooms, it is one of the most romantic spots for honeymoons and other special occasions. San Agustin de Callo constitutes the only lived in museum of Inca Imperial and Spanish Colonial style. Surrounded by the smoke-blackened Inca walls of the dining room, one can marvel at the infinite precision of the stonemasonry, a monument to the unrivalled craftsmanship of the Incas, and admire the stunning view of Cotopaxi, the highest active volcano in the world.The peaceful atmosphere and magical landscape combine to make San Agustin a sanctuary of inspiration for artists and lovers of nature and a restful haven for weary travelers ... more   less
