Hacienda Zuleta

The family home of former Ecuadorian president Mr. Galo Plaza Lasso, Hacienda Zuleta is Ecuador’s most opulent hacienda. Thoroughbred horses gallop, hummingbirds feed, and this is the best place in the country to see condors. 

The main building has a 300-year history and a deluxe suite will immerse you in so much heritage. Mr Lasso’s grandchildren now act as hosts, guiding you through the hacienda’s history with cheese and wine tasting. 

Superb Ecuadorian cuisine is part of the allure here, crafted and served to your choosing. You really need to spend two or three nights to get the best of this hacienda. You can ride and hike all over the vast grounds, as well as relax in the heritage.
