Itinerary

Day 0:

We partner with a number of haciendas in Ecuador and while each one is unique they all offer a genuine taste of Ecuadorian history and charm.  From the remote farmlands and historical significance of Hacienda Zuleta owned by the family of a former Ecuador President for over 100 years offering a Condor Rescue center and world class Stables to the perfect family destination of Hacienda Cusin on the outskirts of the town of Otavalo - famous for its indigenous market.   All our offerings can provide activities for all levels, from cheesemaking to horseback riding and from weaving to mountain biking - the hardest part is deciding which one!

Please contact us to book your Ecuador hacienda extension and speak with one of our Ecuador Specialists.

Day 1: Hacienda Zuleta

Built in the late 17th century, this charming Ecuadorian establishment is situated among the breathtaking Andes mountains. Close to the capital, Quito, Zuleta is a real working farm on an expansive 4000 acres (2000 hectares). It has been in the family of former Ecuador president Galo Plaza for over a century and was rated a "Top Ten Find" by Outside magazine. The Zuleta was also selected as one of the best Ecuador hotels by National Geographic Traveler.

The hotel contains 14 colonially decorated rooms, each with its own cozy fireplace. Quaint landscaping coupled with inviting living and reading rooms make for a serene environment. Hearty home-cooked cuisine is offered fresh daily, including plenty of local delights. Many of the meals even include ingredients fresh from the farm!

In addition to beautiful accommodations and good food, the warm and hospitable Hacienda Zuleta provides a medley of engaging things to see and do. Whether you opt to mountain bike the Andes, peruse the local craft shop, milk one of the dairy cows or check out the resident "pyramids", each day of stay at the authentic Hacienda Zuleta is sure to be fun-filled and full.

Day 2: Hacienda Cusin

Hacienda Cusín is an old-style 17th century mountain estate located high on the hills of Ecuador. With an intimate ambience and 38 friendly staff, the hotel is situated close to the airport and famous market town, Otavalo. Warm weather is more frequent than not thanks to the hacienda's close proximity to the equator.

All rooms and cottages feature an antique touch and come equipped with log-burning fireplaces, high ceilings and views of the gorgeous gardens. Each room is individually decorated with Andean-craft furnishings and includes a waiter-served breakfast every morning.

The Cusín offers a wide assortment of activities onsite to keep you busy and happy. With a film collection of more than 300 titles, a game room and even Spanish lessons at hand, you'll have more than enough to keep you occupied on days you choose to stay nearby. For those who wish to venture out, a variety of walks and tours can be booked directly at Reception.

Day 3: Hacienda Pinsaqui

One-and-a-half hours north of the capital Quito, Hacienda Pinsaqui is attractively located in the shadow of the Imbabura Volcano and is central to Ecuador's lake province. Nearby are the popular Otavalo handicraft market and Cotocachi leather town, two awesome places to pick up some authentic souvenirs. Also close is San Antonio, revered for its detailed wood handicrafts.

The Pinsaqui features 30 comfortable rooms, each with a capacity to host five guests. You can sense the three centuries of history in every charming suite, from the traditional art that graces the walls to the beautiful sheepskin rugs. Great views of the gardens come standard, while live Andean music, therapeutic massages and a library filled with books serve as bonuses.

They are just great!!!
They have a no-nonsense ambience.
The Dormitory is adequate, very clean and comfortable.
The food was very tasty, homely and had a good variety.
The activities catered to our satisfaction. They are provided with lots of patience. Every staff member is so friendly and they ensure that you enjoy the outing.
We were a family with people from all are groups. They took care of every individual needs. Our aged mother was made very comfortable, and they arranged a chair for her at every activity area.
We spent almost two days and one night. And we enjoyed every moment.
If one is looking for a good outing, this is the place. Total value for money. Above all it's the passion of the staff that makes them better than most places around Bangalore.

Just a couple of weeks ago, our team had been to ‘Eagles Unbound Adventure Camp’ for a team outing. It was one of the best outings that we have had and a lot of credit goes to Mr. Sunil Chris for being the perfect host. He and his team had ensured that every minute detail was taken into consideration and delivered as promised. The fact that the organizers were able to feel the pulse of our team and plan activities accordingly had built the right tone for team bonding. The hygiene and quality of food served was par excellence. I would recommend ‘Eagles Unbound’ to anyone planning a team outing.
