Hacienda Santa Ana


Located close to the northern entrance of Cotopaxi National Park, the hacienda originally belonged to a company of 17th Century Jesuits. There now are six individually decorated cosy ensuite rooms, a lounge area and restaurant. The views from the rooms of the mountains are sensational and the hotel has one of the best locations for accessing Cotopaxi National Park and enjoying the different activities on offer.
