Stunning Hacienda Piman is a historic retreat located in Ecuador's northern Andes. A former colonial and Republic country manor, Hacienda Piman has recently been restored to its original beauty by the Zaldumbide family. The Zaldumbide family has owned the hotel since its creation in the 17th century. The hotel's green valley location makes it an oasis of Ecuadorian history nestled among the mountains.
The style of Hacienda Piman is reminiscent of the country manor houses of southern Colombia or Venezuela and features an external patio which runs around the outside walls. 17 guest rooms marry old and new Ecuador and are the perfect blend of traditional and modern. Rooms feature stone walls, exposed brick, antique decorations and colorful paintings.
Hacienda Piman serves a vast array of home-style dishes, using Ecuador's variety of ingredients to create traditional cuisine of the Ecuadorian Andes. The hotel is also willing to share its recipes, enabling guests to return home with the ability to make their favorite meals.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
