Andean Haciendas
and Roman Spa Tour

Accompanied by a specialized guide with in-depth knowledge of the visited areas, the tour begins with a 2-hour drive South from Quito to Cotopaxi National Park. After spending the morning in the park enjoying views of Mt. Cotopaxi (5897 m), the trip continues to San Agustin de Callo. Built on the site of an important “Inca Palace”, this working farmhouse, luxuriously furnished, offers today’s discerning traveler an unrivaled glimpse into Ecuador’s rich and colorful past.

The following day the journey continues to the Northern province of Imbabura, for two nights at Hacienda Zuleta. 

One of the world’s “Top Ten Finds”, this beautiful hacienda on a 4,000-acre working ranch in the Andes belongs to the family of former Ecuadorian President Galo Plaza Lasso.

You can also ride the high-quality horses that are bred at this hacienda.

The last night of this amazing tour is spent at La Mirage Garden Hotel and Spa, the only Relais & Chateaux member in Ecuador. Here the luxury and pampering reach a climax: each room or suite is individually decorated, the service is impeccable, the cuisine extraordinary, and the hotel is equipped with a spa which rivals any first-class spa in the world.
