Hacienda San Agustin de Callo
This unique and remarkable property was the country house of one of Ecuador's most prominent families (including two former presidents). The hacienda was built in the early 18th century on top of the ruins of an Incan palace, the northernmost Incan ruins in South America. Entire Incan rooms from the original palace still exist, including what is now a chapel and the main dining room of the hacienda. There is nothing like this opportunity to spend time inside the original rooms of an Incan palace anywhere else in South America. The property is ideally located right next to Cotopaxi National Park, home to glacier-capped Mount Cotopaxi, one of the highest active volcanoes in the world.

I travel a lot, but I must say hotel Hacienda San Augustin de Callo is the most charming place I ever stayed. If you like history and nature, beautiful design - it's for you.Jolanta Juranek
Of special note was the Hacienda San Agustin de Callo. Maybe it is because of my love of Incan culture, but the walls of this Hacienda were the original walls of an Incan palace. The food was excellent at the Hacienda and the views of Cotopaxi were unrivaled.Diane Saber
