This working farm welcomes guests with intimate accommodations, cloud forest horseback rides and enticing local cuisine.
This ranch was built in the 16th century, but it's most famous for being owned by the descendants of Galo Plaza Lasso, president of Ecuador from 1948-52. The dinner table alone features the ranch's own fresh milk, hand-churned butter, handmade cheese and bread from estate-grown wheat. Also raised here are sheep and Zuleteño horses, a robust crossbreed of Andalusian, English and quarter horses. Rides along high-altitude trails will take you to cloud forests and ancient pre-Inca sites. Your stay also gives you a chance to be socially responsible, since Hacienda Zuleta supports a condor rehabilitation project and a women's cooperative to preserve indigenous embroidery traditions. Fourteen bedrooms (each with its own fireplace) ensure an intimate atmosphere.
