Today, we offer two options for families so that they can do what is best for their interests and skills. These activities have to be selected in advance for logistical reasons.
Option A Mountain Biking
After a wholesome country breakfast, we provide each guest with a quality mountain bike. The Hacienda has several biking circuits so that you can enjoy a morning of highland trails explorations at your own pace. This bike trip can last approx. 2 1/2 hours, through patches of native forest, farmland and highland trails. Return to the farmhouse for a delicious lunch. During the afternoon, we enjoy the Cotopaxi High Rope Course, a circuit designed for both kids and for adults. This is a perfect activity for strengthening family bonds. 1hr 20 min activity time approx. Children from 6 years of age and up.
Option B Native Forest Hike
After a wholesome country breakfast, we drive to Santa Rita Ecological Reserve, a private conservation area in the Cotopaxi Area with fantastic remains of the native forest, petrified lava streams, glacial rivers, and waterfalls. We will hike through native forest trails, learning about the ecology of the place. A 2-hour loop will finish at the campsite where we can catch some rainbow trout in the stream like locals do. We enjoy a picnic at the campsite and if we caught some trout, we can cook it and have it for lunch! Or we can always do catch and release. During the afternoon, we return to the Hacienda to enjoy the Cotopaxi High Rope Course, a circuit designed for both kids and for adults. This is a perfect activity for strengthening family bonds. 1hr 20 min activity time approx.
