Hacienda Zuleta, Imbabura

Zuleta is an astonishingly beautiful, working farm stretching from horizon to horizon. It comprises 4000 acres of scenic countryside, at the heart of which is an outstanding hacienda dating back to the 16th century.

Owned by the family of Mr Galo Plaza Lasso for over a century, you can expect to be welcomed into this exceptional home in  a genteel, traditional way that is entirely in keeping with the richness of its history and the respectability of the family.

Similarly, you can expect excellent Ecuadorian cuisine prepared from organic, Hacienda-grown produce.
