We had a less than 12 hours layover in Quito (enroute to The Galapagos) but didn't want to drive the 1 hour plus into the city. We found this great little hacienda in Puembo, just 10 minutes from the new Quito airport which was perfect.
Pablo the owner gave us a little tour and shared some history on the dwelling Built in 1870. The hacienda is charming and you will enjoy the architecture and the very peaceful setting. Breakfast included. Transportation arranged to and from the airport.
