We were in Magarita's room which has a great view and wonderful private patio. There is a wood burning fireplace that keeps us warm at night. The hospitality and services from...

My girlfriend and I were looking to have a small trip to an hacienda in Ecuador, and specifically experience milking a cow. This place surpassed all of our expectations. First, getting to the hacienda is relatively easy, and it's worth mentioning since the views are breathtaking. Once at the hacienda, we were greeted by our guide who was a local,...

We stayed here four nights, but I wish we could have stayed a week. Four nights really just means two, full days, and we crammed in what we could, but my shoulders relax and a smile comes to my face when I daydream about a more-leisurely pace, riding and hiking each day around this lovely farm. The place had a...
