The Andes to the north of Quito are home to beautiful scenery, colourful Indian markets and Hacienda Zuleta, a truly fabulous hacienda, described by National Geographic as one of their top 129 Hotels in the World and by Outside Magazine as ‘One of the Top Ten Finds in the World’. If you have time and your budget allows, this place really is a must.
You are virtually guaranteed to see wild Andean Condors in a 2 day visit here. The region is also home to Otavalo Market, one of the largest and most colourful markets in the Andes, with fantastic handicrafts.
“It was simply fantastic, every single day was brilliant!”
