Overview

Built in 1911, historic Hacienda and 135-hectare Alegria Farm are in the verdant heart of the Avenida de los Volcanoes. These beautiful pasturelands are home to more than 200 cows and calves, 65 horses and foals, dozens of llamas and alpacas, and more. It's the perfect place to learn about hacienda life, which includes milking cows, riding horses, animal care, and taking care. Visit us from a few hours a day to several days.
