we greatly enjoyed staying in this very atmospheric hacienda...the walks on the property itself are great, and the riding. It is wonderfully positioned for Cotapaxi, and the staff are very welcoming...even to the detail of the much appreciated hot water bottles brought to warm our beds in the evening. The setting and buildings themselves stay long I the memory.

Loved it - great stay - very welcoming and friendly staff. Great food. Rustic, homely accommodation - cosy wood burning fires in the comfy welcoming lounge and at bedtime - hot water bottles offered for those chilly nights - after all you are at c4000m.

My mom and I stayed at the Hacienda during our 1-week trip in Ecuador. Sadly, we only had one night at the Hacienda, but I'm so glad we went. Jorge and his team made us feel super welcome from the moment we arrive to the moment we left. The food was delicious, and especially impressive given the remote location. The... More

We stayed at El Porvenir for two nights and enjoyed every minute in this beautiful location. The Hacienda buildings themselves are stunning against the backdrop of volcanoes, sweeping valleys and blue sky. The clouds came and went, affording good views. Our room (#17) was small but very comfortable and nicely furnished. Hot water bottles were delivered nightly as like most... More

We wanted to book for three nights. Our plan was to see the region but were not sure what to book. The booking staff at Tierra del Volcan were very accommodating and creative. They provided us with a package that included a fantastic guide, (Santiago) accommodations, meals, hiking and exploring, with a history lesson thrown in. Very comfortable accommodations, there...

El Porvenir is one of my very favorite places in Ecuador. The setting is stunning, the hacienda is warm and inviting, and the hospitality is top notch. The food at the restaurant is extremely creative nuevo-Ecuadorian cuisine and delicious. Definitely go for a horse-back ride and do the high ropes course! Highly recommended if you want to explore the Cotopaxi... More

We were booked here for two nights but loved it so much we extended our stay. Roberto was very welcoming and helpful. The food was some of the best we had during our stay in Ecuador. The location was fantastic and we had a great view from our room - watching llamas is far more entertaining that tv! After our... More

We only spent 1 night and it was between this and Tambopaxi, which required wiring the deposit. El Porvenir I was able to reserve via booking.com and I wasn't charged in advance. Breakfast is included and they serve dinner too, which is important as there is nothing nearby. We took a cab from Quito to Machachi for $30 and got... More

We spent 4 nights at the Hacienda El Porvenir last week. My husband, 3 teenage daughters and myself. It was a wonderful experience. We loved the warm atmosphere at the hacienda, fireplaces everywhere, marvellous roses bouquets! We went horseback riding almost every day and the scenery is simply out of this world! My two oldest daughters ad my husband also... More

I visited Hacienda El Porvenir in March 2015 with two of my friends for two days and one night. After living in Quito for the past few months as a study-abroad student, El Porvenir was the change of pace I needed. First off, the welcoming staff at the hacienda is definitely one of their greatest assets. They are extremely helpful... More
