Although built in 1690, this ranch is most famous for being owned by the descendants of Galo Plaza Lasso, president of Ecuador from 1948-52. Its industry makes it one of the most productive ranches on this list. The dinner table alone attests to its output: fresh milk and hand-churned butter, handmade cheese and bread made from estate-grown wheat. Also raised here are livestock, 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 Inca pyramids. Your stay also gives you a chance to be socially responsible, since Hacienda Zuleta supports a condor rehabilitation project and an embroidery workshop to preserve indigenous traditions. Because you're sleeping in the family house and the hacienda accepts a limited number of guests a year, the atmosphere is intimate and sociable.

The Hideout at Flitner Ranch
Although city slickers are welcome here, this is a true cattle ranch, where guests can spend full days rounding up Black Angus mother cows and pushing them through the Bighorns. The 300,000-acre property has been family-owned since 1906 and open to guests since 1990. Adult-oriented, it emphasizes gourmet cuisine (the ranch's own prime beef) and cocktail hour along with riding quarter horses—there are more than 60 to choose from. Guests are invited to join ranch cowhands in team penning/sorting competitions, as well as pursue non-ranch activities, such as airboat rides, hiking and tours of the local dinosaur track site. Private cabins cater to no more than 30 guests each week.
