The hacienda is surrounded by páramo (highlands) and is ideal for walking. Guided treks can be arranged with professional guides. The hacienda can arrange to take you by four wheel drive to a rather steep ascent in the southern side of Cotopaxi. You will have the chance to see unusual páramo plants and Andean animals. Return via a deep gorge which leads you back to a village where transport will be waiting to take you back to the hacienda. A rose plantation is only a short walk away from the house. Ecuadorian roses are considered the most beautiful in the world.
