In the heart of Ecuador's lake district, Hacienda Pinsaquí, rich with centuries of history , invites you to become part of its magic, tradition, romance and legends.
Hacienda Pinsaquí is ideally situated at the base of Imbabura Volcano , just north of the world-famous Otavalo market , and only an hour-and-a-half from Quito, Ecuador's charming capital. Its location also allows effortless access to the region's many attractions: the lakes of San Pablo , Cuicocha and Mojanda , as well as the white colonial city of Ibarra and local handicraft villages like Cotacachi .
Over the centuries Pinsaquí 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, hacienda's walls witnessed the "Treaty of Pinsaquí ," an historic peace agreement between Colombia and Ecuador.
