Hacienda Pinsaquí, rich with centuries of history, invites you to become part of its magic, tradition, romance and legends. Hacienda Pinsaquí is ideally situated at the base of Imbabura Volcano, just north of the world-famous Otavalo market, and only an hour-and-a-half from Quito, Ecuador's charming capital - the perfect place to relax on your Ecuador tour!

The Hacienda
Constructed in 1790, Otavalo Hotel, Hacienda Pinsaquí was originally a colonial textile enterprise, employing over one thousand weavers and spinners. Many of Pinsaquí's fabrics were exported to the United States in the late 1800s where they first received international recognition. To this day, the Hacienda retains the character and authenticity of its earlier incarnation, making for a unique travel experience.
Over the centuries Pinsaquí has hosted numerous illustrious guests. Most famous of all is General Simón Bolívar, the revered liberator of Ecuador, who often spent the night at the hacienda on his trips to and from Bogotá, Colombia. Later in the nineteenth century, hacienda's walls witnessed the "Treaty of Pinsaquí ," an historic peace agreement between Colombia and Ecuador.

This unique hacienda makes an ideal base. Whether you are looking for outdoor pursuits, relaxation, antiques, handicrafts, and whether you are single, a couple or a family, Hacienda Pinsaqui guarantees that a few days in their charming company will make your stay in Ecuador unforgettable.

. 20 well-appointed suites with fireplaces (some with jacuzzi bath)
