Hacienda Zuleta and Galo Plaza foundation works in projects that make you know Ecuadorian history, art and culture. Lodging and food are excellent. The Condor project is one of the best ecological projects in the country.

  • Old embroidery samples reflect Zuleta's role in the industry. (That's my scarf)
  • A comfortable triple room (the boys' larger side with a patio is too messy to photograph!)
  • Fabulous roses everywhere! Everything is simple and beautiful.
