We went during the Carnival holidays. The friendliness of the owners is unique. Do not miss the stories about the indigenous community told by the owner. We were surprised by the tireless work of Joselin, an employee of the ranch. However it is overpriced compared to the service they offer and accommodation in Imbabura. Average food and accommodation.

The road to the hacienda is a bit bumpy, and makes you very curious. But the reward is amazing. Hostess Chelita and host Rosendo are one of the most attentive and nicest hoteliers we have experienced in Ecuador.
