Hacienda Zuleta is a real gem, 2 hours form Quito, in the Andes. From spectacular scenery, to top service, organic food, plentiful of wonderful activities and a real homely atmosphere. The minute we arrived we felt at home in this16th century hacienda which is still a working farm, privately owned and managed by Fernando, the grand son of the late Ecuadorian president Galo Palza Lasso. He and his staff are dedicated, helpful and attentive to the smallest details and wishes of guests are not only met, but often anticipated. From hot water bottle in bed, to incredible bouquet of roses in rooms, wonderful food, explanations of Ecuador history, wildlife and culture. The guides are also excellent. We went horseback riding, hiking, visited the Condor project, the organic garden, the cheese factory and took a cooking class. We only wished we had stayed longer than the three nights we had planned.
We also liked the support the owners give to the indigenous community including employment, schooling, medical assistance and scholarships.
Thank you for an unforgettable experience!
