Hacienda El Porvenir is a good spot to relax while enjoying Cotopaxi. It's not the easiest place to get to but the seclusion is nice. The night sky is clear. The volcano is close by. The staff are helpful and arrange any tours you need and requests you have, and the food is good and reasonably priced. Hot water showers....

In our two weeks in Ecuador we stayed here for one night but wished it had been for many more nights. Beautiful location, rooms with character and lovely furniture and a great, reasonably priced, restaurant. Most of all lovely staff who made our stay so enjoyable. Walked in the mountains nearby and then headed to Cotopaxi. Wonderful.

We only stayed the night, arriving after dark and heading back out just after breakfast, but Porvenir was certainly a promising spot if we had had longer to enjoy it. The dynamic and impressively fit manager is a fabulous character; the welcome drink & snack were the most interesting (delicious!) we had on our trip; and the rooms and common...

Neither my wife, nor I, are what you'd call experienced horse riders. We thought looking at the volcanoes from the Andean highlands on a horse would be fun though, so we booked an excursion from here. To be clear, we did not stay here overnight (though I wish we had) - this was a day trip for us from Quito....

What a relaxing night. I really wish I could have stayed longer. This hacienda is gorgeous and the view from my room was amazing. The food was good, and they even catered to vegetarians, which was a relief since there were no other restaurants in walking distance. I opted for the 4 hour guided hike, and I'm glad that I...

We had a great time at the Hacienda El Porvenir. Some of us went into the park and up the refuge while the rest of the group went horseback riding through the 'paramo.' We all had an incredible time. The Hacienda has a great views, great food, great service, and a very cozy fireplace.

Amazing place in the shadow of Cotopaxi. Very close (4km) to the north entrance of Cotopaxi. Rooms, grounds, service, ambiance and food are all amazing. Could only stay 1 night because altitude was too high for us (11,000'+), but would LOVE to go back.

We stayed south of Machachi at a lower altitude, but drove up to El Porvenir for an incredible 2 hour horse ride, then ate lunch in their restaurant.

A real hacienda experience, wonderful weekend getaway. Dinner was great, I recommend the trout and the beef with berries. The horseback riding experience is a must. Wonderful view of Cotopaxi and it's surrounding páramo.

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed it a lot. There is a nice two hour walk starting behind the hacienda giving nice views on the Cotopaxi. Late afternoon best for good views. We also did the horseback ride ; while we were never on a horse before, it was great fun and you are in a spectacular scenery....
