Hotels in Ecuador

The best hotels in Ecuador offer a number of great amenities for a low price. Whether you are looking for a cozy bed to crash into after a day of exploring the rainforest or a relaxing resort in an exciting location, Ecuador hotels have it all.

Hacienda PinsaquÍ is an excellent choice for your stay in Otavalo. The 217-year-old historic hacienda is located near the Otavalo market as well as a number of villages that sell leather goods, carvings and woodworkings. In the evening, cheese empanadas and canelazo are served in the cellar bar, and an Andean band provides music. You can also choose to grab dinner at one of the hotel’s two restaurants, which serve local dishes such as carne colorado and friata (fried pork).

Hacienda Zuleta is one of the most unique hotels in Equador. There, travelers will find 2,000 sheep and 300 cows roaming the expansive property. It is a farm that produces crops in the Andes and is located just two hours from Quito. Horses will take travelers from the hotel to the 800-year-old Caranqui pyramid mounds or the resident condor-rehabilitation project. In the evening, guests can dine at a common table where they serve the famous rice tart, heart-of-palm ceviche and other delicious meals.
