Client comments and reviews
Hacienda El Porvenir has great charm and lovely staff. The altitude can clearly be a problem for some but we had a great time. We went up as far as the car park on Cotopaxi on the one clear morning and had a 2-hour ride in the clouds on the second day. - RS (January 2017)
El Porvenir was wonderfully remote but a little too high for us. We simply hadn?t anticipated the effect on each of us of being at nearly 12,000 ft. We had a great time up there, and wandering around Cotapaxi National Park but frankly were quite relieved to get to a slightly lower altitude after a couple of days. - DS (February 2016)
Due to the height of El Porvenir it can be quite cold so I was pleased that that the fire was lit in the charming, large, ensuite room you had reserved. I managed to climb up to the base camp at Cotopaxi, it is sobering to see the power of a volcano and important to be accompanied by good local guides. - JC (March 2009)
The Hacienda El Porvenir was beautiful. It was in a stunning location, although Cotopaxi remained a bit hidden whilst we were there. We were very well fed and well looked after. Our only complaint there was it was too cold. - SH (February 2009)
