I spent an afternoon here, watching the chagras demonstrate their horsemanship. We saw wonderful displays of skill and then had a tour of the house. We also met many of the animals. It was an enjoyable afternoon.

I had the pleasure of spending 4 days riding with the Espinoza family. 3 nights at Hacienda La Alegria and 1 at Hacienda Bomboli. Great riding near the farm and a superb adventure across the mountain to a cloud forest. The horses are very fit, and if you can ride a good number of trots and long canters. The Hacienda is clean and comfortable, good home style cooking and even a jacuzzi.

this hidden gem just has it all! the horses are perfectly trained and both a fun and safe ride for different riding levels. the tack fits them perfectly and both horses and sadles are so comfortable I was 't even soar after 6 days of riding. the surroundings are just stunning and I can really recommend the cloud forest ride to bomboli...that place is just magical. I had the pleasure of meeting Gabriel and this lovely wife Paty over many delicious dinners (yes... the food is exquisit!) but it was his cousin Mauricio who guided me on the trailrides. To me Mauricio is the best guide in the world and every ride we took felt tailormade. at the Hacienda the beautiful bedrooms are very spacious and clean and the view on the mountains is exceptional. loved every second of this trip and can 't wait to go back 😊

We stayed 2 nights and had a 3+ Hour horse back ride through beautiful countryside on quaint old cobbled lanes. Gabriel and Paty treated us as family and joined in all the meals. The family owned hacienda is over 100 years old. Gabriel and Paty speak perfect English and staff is learning.

This was a dream vacation for us! Horseback riding in the Andes is a bucketlist item for sure. Gabriel, Patty, Guido and Maurizio made us feel at home and could not do enough for us. The views, the horses, the dogs, the food, the accomodations, the company were all 5 star. As farmers, we throughly enjoyed the transfer of information and our evening conversations. We loved every minute of our time at the Hacienda. Much Love, Ian and Andrea
