    “The hacienda has character, warm, inviting and homey, with strudy adobe walls and a straw roof, desgined in typical Andean Highland Style”

    Lorry Heverly.
    Travel World News January 2002.
    < Hacienda El Porvenir “South of the capital, Quito, beyond the robust little town of Machachi, I rolled into the horse-hiring hacienda of Tierra del Volcan. I recommend it as my personal quest-house of the decade: Miles form my own herbaceous borders, it has a familiar aspect and a locally woven roof of tufty grass.”

    Financial Times London  Robin Lane Fox  October  2009.

    “Venimos al Porvenir! Es muy chévere acá. Nos relajamos mucho y pasamos muy bien. Me encantan los machais, duermes full bien y descansas mucho. La comida es muy rica y me encantan las caminatas que se pueden hacer y montar caballos. Volveremos pronto”
