Upon arriving you will be greeted by a family member for a traditional ecuadorian coffee and snack with fresh bufala mozzarella. Here you will receive a brief of the areas you will visit and learn about their operations. Before riding their horses or mules, you will try your luck fishing your lunch. Once you have fish your lunch, the cook with kindly prepared it for you upon your return to the hacienda house. The horse riding experience will be about an hour where you will get up close to the water bufalas where you will be so close that you will feel their breath in your body. You will also see over 20 different types of birds so this experience is great for birdwatchers as well.
Upon you arrival back to the hacienda house, you will be greeted with fresh lemonade and a beautiful lunch (fished by you) accompanied by the house favorite wine next to the lake. When days are clear you will see the beautiful highlands in the horizon.
