Hacienda Pinsaqui Otavalo

Hacienda Pinsaqui near Otavalo, Ecuador

Out of all of the Otavalo hotels on offer in Ecuador, Hacienda Pinsaqui is a top choice and true historical gem.

Constructed in 1790, Hacienda Pinsaqui was originally a colonial textile enterprise, employing over one thousand weavers and spinners. Many of Pinsaqui’s fabrics were exported to the United States in the late 1800s where they first received international recognition. To this day, the Hacienda retains the character and authenticity of its earlier incarnation, making for a unique travel experience.

Over the centuries Hacienda Pinsaqui has hosted numerous illustrious guests. Most famous of all is General Simón Bolívar, the revered liberator of Ecuador, who often spent the night at the hacienda on his trips to and from Bogotá, Colombia. Later in the nineteenth century, the hacienda witnessed the signing of the "Treaty of Pinsaqui", a historic peace agreement between Colombia and Ecuador.

This unique hacienda, which has been in the hands of the Freile family for generations, makes an ideal base from where to explore the Otavalo area. Whether you are looking for outdoor pursuits, relaxation or handicrafts, and whether you are single, a couple or a family, we guarantee that a few days here will make your stay in Ecuador unforgettable.
