Hacienda La Alegría - Hotel Quito - Ecuador

Situated an hour south of Quito, on the slopes of the Corazón Volcano, Hacienda La Alegría is in the heart of the “Avenue of the Volcanoes.” On a clear day, you can see not only Corazón but also four other volcanoes from the courtyard. Still a working organic farm (guests can participate in farm-related activities such as cow milking, etc. if they wish), La Alegría specializes in horses.

It offers a variety of tours, ranging from one-day trips without lodging to multi-day trips that include overnight accommodations and meals. Although La Alegría’s horseback excursions are more expensive than those you can find in a town like Baños, you can rest assured that the hacienda takes excellent care of its horses. La Alegría also offers hiking, mountain biking and excursions to the nearby cloud forest, and hosts an annual summer camp for Ecuadorian children. La Alegría only has space for 18 guests, so if you wish to visit, you may want to make reservations ahead of time.
