The Galapagos Islands

Look forward to experiencing the amazing nature and wildlife of the Galapagos Islands aboard the motorboat Golondrina I, which will be your home on the Galapagos cruise.

The boat has just 8 cabins, accommodating 16 passengers on 3 decks. The cabins are small with bunk beds, but all have their own toilet and air conditioning. We use the cabins located on the middle and upper decks where there is least engine noise.

Hacienda El Porvenir

Pedregal (at Cotopaxi National Park)

Situated just outside Cotopaxi National Park is Hacienda El Porvenir, which is set in a scenic area at an altitude of 3,600 metres, surrounded by four volcanoes, one of which is Cotopaxi.

The hacienda dates back to the colonial period, but from 1999, the owners decided to open the farm to guests and share the unique atmosphere and stunning location with others. It is a working farm with horses and cattle, and they produce their own spices, vegetables, milk and cheese.

The hacienda is built in the traditional style using local materials, and all 22 rooms are uniquely appointed. All rooms have a heater for the chilly nights and an en suite bathroom with hot water. Wi-Fi is also available.

There are two large living areas for use by guests, where you can enjoy a good book by the fireplaces or play various games and meet other travellers.

The restaurant serves delicious local and international dishes in a pleasant setting.

You can also pamper yourself by purchasing access to the hotel’s own spa, APU Mountain SPA. Soothe those aching muscles in the hot baths and jacuzzis in tranquil surroundings.

The hacienda offers various activities, which are paid for locally, such as horseback riding, mountain biking, cooking classes and high rope climbing for the more adventurous guests. The activities are conducted by Spanish-speaking guides, but riding instruction, for example, is given in English before departure, so Spanish skills are not a necessity.

Treat yourself to an upgrade to the hacienda’s suite rooms. These rooms are larger and have their own fireplace, which the staff light in the evening, making it warm and cosy at bedtime. Access to the APU Mountain SPA is also included, but a fee is payable for the spa treatments.

There are mosquito nets on the windows, so you get a natural breeze in the room, while listening to the sounds of the jungle and the rushing river.
