Otavalo's premier hacienda is located in a gorgeous spot at the foot of the Imbabura volcano
This 17th-century hacienda is a fabulous choice in the Otavalo area, especially if you're looking for a mix of luxury and history. Cusín sits on over 4 hectares (10 acres) of lush gardens and cobblestone courtyards overflowing with bougainvillea, orchids, and palm trees. Rooms are located in the renovated one-story hacienda and come with antique furnishings and high ceilings. The garden cottages are of somewhat more recent construction and come with working fireplaces. The owner's suite is large enough for a family of four, and even if you don't choose this room, the entire hacienda is an extremely kid-friendly operation. All units have spacious bathrooms with lovely blue tiles. The friendly staff can help you arrange activities, including the popular overnight horseback-riding trip to Volcán Imbabura. Spanish-language classes are also available. The restaurant serves a wonderful dinner by candlelight, so there's no need to leave the property after dark.
