Tierra del Volcán operates exclusively in the Cotopaxi area, one of the most privileged parts of Ecuador in terms of natural beauty. We have three haciendas: El Porvenir, Santa Rita and El Tambo, nestling on the lower slopes of different volcanoes around the ever imposing mass of Cotopaxi. Each hacienda has its own magic, ecosystem and traditional lifestyle. We offer you accommodation in cosy farm houses ( at Hacienda El Porvenir and Hacienda El Tambo) and fun adventures at all levels of difficulty, ensuring you unforgettable moments in the hands of our expert guides. We provide horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, zip lines, trekking, mountain climbing, rappelling, bird-watching, camping, contact with the local culture, and more.

Hacienda El Porvenir
On the slopes of Rumiñahui Volcano, in a truly privileged position, Hacienda El Porvenir is the ideal spot from which to explore Cotopaxi, get to know the Andean way of life at first hand and have thrilling adventures.
Hacienda Santa Rita
Hacienda Santa Rita is a Private Ecological Reserve that concentrates on sustainable cattle farming and the conservation of the native Andean forest and páramos. Past eruptions of Cotopaxi have shaped the land where beautiful waterfalls, streams and ravines give shelter to a vast biological diversity. Ideal for hikes and treks. Camp site available.
Hacienda El Tambo
El Tambo owes its name to a former pre-Hispanic inn on this spot, which was a resting and supply place in Inca times for wayfarers travelling between the highlands and the Amazon basin.

    “In the scrubby sub-alpine paramo on the slopes of Quilindana Volcano, I witnessed highland chagra traditions unfolding as they have for centuries, and each participant's respect for them.”
