Hacienda El Porvenir Horseback Riding

Day visit from Quito:

Yes, often done so.

Driving time from Quito:

More or less 2 hrs. per way.

What is it?

It is a typical highland hacienda with nice creol horses, well adapted to cope with the altitude, and ride throught the highland grass, and also by the lidia bulls that inhabit the highlands. The location is one of the best due to the proximity with the Cotopaxi Volcano, and the horses are very well kept. Good equipment too.

Horseback riding, hiking, eat at the restaurant.

Hacienda el Porvenir, Quito, Lasso, Papallacta, other lodge or hacienda in the Cotopaxi Park area.
