“Paradise! The most beautiful place in the world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2009

If paradise exists, you'll find it here! Set high up in the mountains close to the well-known Cotopaxi volcano, Tierra del Volcan couldn't be situated in a more idyllic location. After adapting to the high altitude, you can enjoy the peaceful, breathtaking surroundings that this place has to offer. The lodge has a very cosy, warm, welcoming feel to it, making you feel instantly at home. The service by the humble, friendly members of staff is excellent, and the food is delicious! They offer all sorts of activities, including lovely treks through the surrounding wilderness, and amazing horse-back rides up into the mountains. I recommend the 4 hour ride - I can guarantee it will be an experience you'll never forget! Beautiful, breathtaking, astounding, exciting, spectacular, peaceful, enlightening... there aren't enough adjectives to describe this wonderful place! I'd go back there any day - and how I wish I could!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2009

I stayed in Hacienda del Porvenir last week while traveling Ecuador with my mother and while both the hacienda and the surrounding landscape were absolutely beautiful, we almost froze in room 16. I have over a year's experience traveling in South America and after investing $80 in a room we were expecting extreme comfort. After sundown the room became unbearably cold, the two space heaters provided by the hacienda made little difference as there was a steady cold breeze entering in from around the windows, when I went down to reception at 11pm everyone had gone to bed and there was no one to help, and when I awoke the next morning the hot water in the shower ran out after 5 minutes. Our time there was salvaged by an absolutely amazing 4 hour horseback tour, which made all of the discomfort with the trouble (more or less), but after returning from the ride the lack of warm water had still not been fixed.
