Hacienda Zuleta - Imbabura Province, Ecuador

Hacienda Zuleta's core ethos is to welcome you as part of our family during your stay. You live in the rooms our family members grew up in and return to, experience the personalized service at our antique dining table, and hear the funny (and sometimes hair-raising) stories of the past as you sit by the fireside.

You ride the horses bred here across generations, walk the lanes laid down by Galo Plaza Lasso, eat from the gardens his wife lovingly created, and explore the community they helped forge together with the local people.
