Dating from the late XVI century, our hacienda lies in the spectacular Andean mountain range of Ecuador at 9,600 feet (2,800 meters) above the sea level, and only two hours north of Quito, the capital of Ecuador. Zuleta is a colonial working farm of 4,000 acres (2,000 hectares) that belongs to the family of Mr. Galo Plaza Lasso, a former president of Ecuador, for more than 100 years. It was chosen as one of the world’s “Top Ten Finds” by Outside magazine and named as one of the best Ecuador Hotel by National Geographic Traveler. The hacienda has 15 beautifully decorated bedrooms, all with their own fireplace; antique gardens along with cozy living and reading rooms offer a peaceful atmo- sphere. Delicious home Ecuadorian cuisine among other types of gastronomic adventures are offered daily, prepared with organic vegetables, trout and dairy prod- ucts produced on the Hacienda. The Plaza family with their natural warmth and hospital- ity welcomes you to their country house and invites you to share life at an authentic hacienda in the Andes of Ecuador. Zuleta is a typical colonial hacienda, built by orders of the king of Spain at the end of 16th century. A big part of the construction was finished in 1691, proven by an inscription on the building on the right side of the plaza seen from the entrance. Zuleta was bought by the Lasso family in 1898. In the 1920s the family owned 9 haciendas, most of them in the Cotopaxi area, some of them like San Augustin de Callo still belong to the family. Galo Plaza Lasso, who was president of Ecuador from 1948-1952 inherited the Hacienda from his mother and managed the farm until his death in 1987. Zuleta now belongs to Galo Plaza Lasso’s five daugh- ters Elsa, Luz, Rosario, Marcela and Margarita and to his only son Galo. Fernando Polanco, a grandson of Galo Plaza Lasso is the general manager and he has a private house on the property. The rest of the family visits frequently during weekends or holidays. To visit Hacienda Zuleta is to experience four centuries of Ecuadorian history seeped in Pre-Colombian, Spanish and Ecuadorian tradition.
