Discover the Pampered Side of Ecuador At Exclusive Haciendas

World-class spas. Healing hot springs. Glamorous hacienda accommodations. Just because you’re eager to discover Ecuador’s rich and colorful past, doesn’t mean you have to forfeit contemporary service, cuisine and comfort. Well, that’s what Judy Carvalhal, founder of Ecuador travel outfitter, Enchanted Expeditions, believes.

Luxury travelers can now discover the Pampered Side of Ecuador on Enchanted Expeditions’ new hacienda hopping package. 

Visit Cotopaxi National Park, home to the highest active volcano in the world, Cotopaxi (19,348 ft).

Bed down in the 15th century San Agustin de Callo, a luxuriously furnished farmhouse built on the site of an Inca palace, one of Ecuador’s most important archaeological sites.


Ride pure bred horses at Hacienda Zuleta, a 19-room, 4,000-acre working ranch in the Andes owned by the family of former Ecuadorian President Galo Plaza Lasso.

Hike into Condor Huasi, where Andean Condors are being reintroduced into the wild.

Enjoy traditional Ecuadorian hospitality at the 23-room La Mirage Garden Hotel and Spa, Ecuador’s only Relais & Chateaux member property built on the grounds of a 200-year-old hacienda.
