The Hacienda Cusin is just outside Otavalo, at the foot of the Imbabura Volcano. It was built in 1602 for the Luna family of Spain. The furnishings fit the period, and local artisans wove all the bed coverings. The hacienda was built around a courtyard, and the second floor has a wrap-around balcony overlooking it.
Breakfast is included in the room rate.
TVs and phones don’t fit the decor, and there aren’t any in the rooms.
The hacienda had a small handicrafts store, mostly clothing, jewelry and woven items, and a few of us were checking it out before dinner. We were stunned to discover that although the vendor didn’t take credit cards, she would accept personal checks!
Unique Quality: The public rooms are elegant, and there are lovely landscaped gardens behind the hotel, with a couple of llamas munching on the grass.
There are recreational activities on site (sports courts, board games, mountain bike and hiking trails) but we were busy sightseeing and didn't do any of them. Horseback riding is available for a fee.
