During the Spanish colonial epoch, the Ecuadorian Andes were divided into large estates, each with their own “hacienda” (country estate or ranch). A number of these still exiting haciendas continue in that rich architectural tradition with their structures having been renovated into boutique hotels in amazing settings.
The Ecuadorian Andes — that stretch of mountain range filled with vibrant indigenous markets, colonial cities, misty cloud forests, and towering summits (as well serving as a jumping-off point for your Galapagos cruise) — offers an awe-inspiring array of natural and cultural wonders.
