I went to Hacienda de Cayara with a student group. We didn't stay the night but we toured the day there with the owner Luis Arturo. Luis is very invested and passionate about the history of the hacienda as well as the history of Potosi. We had a lovely trout (from the farm) lunch and got a in depth talk...

You don't get the chance to stay at a 16th century hacienda every day. And even scarcer are the chances to encounter one with such exceptionally kind hosts. David is the heart and soul of the place, knowledgeable and proud of the hacienda's history. It is impressive and well worth to take the tour of the premises in order to...

A historic jewel hidden away in a valley of Potosi, tucked between trees and hills of red rock that make the most amazing scenery. This colonial house is the oldest standing in the continent and amazingly still had the furniture, books, clothes and artifacts from the era, hundreds of years ago. All these treasures are kept in the private museum...

Although the city of Potosí offers some tourist attractions, being about 20 kms from it, at Hacienda Cayara, is a unique and peaceful experience. Attention is excellent as well as the food. David will personally take you on a tour of the property and tell you the history of this place since it was built in the 1500´s to this...

To begin with - The Hacienda is quite a distance away from the city of Potosi. The roads are rocky and bumpy. The manager, David was very nice and tried to be accommodating. There is no real wi fi but David kindly hooked up his phone so I could get it in my room. There was wi fi for one...

Hacienda de Cayara is a wonderful accomodation in an absolutely peaceful environment. Fantastic place, one of the most recommendable we have experienced! Location: Hacienda de Cayara is situated a 20-30 minutes drive outside of Potosi. Cayara is a little village, so it is absolutely peaceful and quiet. The hacienda is not comparable to a hotel, it is really a hacienda...

The only positive thing about our stay at this hotel is the fact that it only lasted one night, as everything was a total disappointment. First of all, the only thing that can be salvaged is the property itself and the common rooms, located at ca. 40 minutes from Potosì, with some beautiful agricultural areas around. That's it, everything else...

We were really spoiled when we stayed here. We had the whole place and staff to ourselves! They bent over backwards to make us feel welcome and solved any issue at the drop of a hat. The hacienda is basically a huge historical artifact which is evolving around you - new curios and exhibits were popping up all the time....

This place is very charming and has a lot of history, but given the reviews I had read in Lonely Planet and other places it is nothing like what I expected. I expected a beautiful Mexican style Hacienda with gardens etc etc. These place doesn't really have gardens - there are some patio areas. The history is impressive but the...

I won't soon forget Hacienda de Cayara. Yes, it is a bit out of the way but if you're a fan of history you'll love this place; built in the 1500's and beautifully cared for by generations of Arturo's family. We were given a tour of the place (amazing!) for free. If they improved the food this place would be...
