Hacienda Pinsaqui

Hacienda Pinsaqui, Otavalo, Ecuador


When the liberator Simón de Bolívar stayed at the Hacienda Pinsaqui during Latin America’s wars of independence, he discovered a deep sense of peace among the estate’s white stone gates and rolling gardens. Today, visitors can experience the same tranquility, as they stroll the colonial grounds of this truly historic hotel.

Located just outside the famous market town of Otavalo, the Hacienda Pinsaqui was built in 1790 to serve as a textile plant that produced exquisite native fabrics. After an earthquake damaged it in 1867, it was extensively reconstructed to provide the last word in elegance: fine wood floors, French chandeliers, stone fireplaces. Today the hotel’s tradition of personal service continues, as the owner joins his guests nightly at the bar to recount the hacienda’s history.

Aside from its sumptuous décor, the hacienda is also a convenient starting point for expeditions to Imbabura volcano, or to the handicraft manufacturers of Cotacachi and San Antonio de Ibarra. But whether you opt for solitary mountain biking or an afternoon ride on one of the hacienda’s horses, you’ll experience a living piece of South American history at this one-of-a-kind lodging.
