A stunning 17th-century hotel and working-farm of former Ecuador President Galo Plaza Lasso.
Cradled in an Andean valley at 9,600' above sea level and only two hours north of Quito, historic Hacienda Zuleta offers guests a raw and authentic experience steeped in four centuries of Ecuadorian history and tradition. The working farm sprawls over 4,000 acres and has been owned and operated by the family of Mr. Galo Plaza Lasso, former president of Ecuador, for over 100 years.
Hacienda Zuleta is a working farm and has been owned an operated by the Plaza-Lasso family since 1898, which included two Presidents of Ecuador. Hacienda Zuleta is a home, not a hotel, and guests are treated as such.
Each of the rooms is one of a kind, named after and decorated in the memory of a member of the Plaza-Lasso family,
Go horseback riding on one of our own Zuleteno breed horses past pre-Incan pyramids to visit our Andean Condor rehabilitation center, visiting our award winning cheese factory onsite or participating in a private embroidery lesson with one of the indigenous women of the Zuleta community.
One of the best places to view both Andean Condors and Andean Spectacle Bears in the wild.
