SAN PEDRO Manor, Otavalo, Via Selva Alegre, Km 19 - The ideal
place to discover Imbabura Province
Just 106 km (66 miles) north of Quito, the capital of Ecuador,
and a 20-minute drive from Otavalo, is the SAN PEDRO Manor, 3000
meters (almost 10,000 feet) above sea level, in the province of
Imbabura. SAN PEDRO's fields, meadows and "primary woodlands"
cover some 65 hectares (160 acres). The view is fantastic: part
totally wild and part under cultivation, and ringed by snowcapped
volcanoes: Mt. Cotacachi (4966 m. / 16,292 ft.), Mt. Imbabura (4650
m. / 15,256 ft.) and Mt. Cayambe (5790 m. / 18,996 ft.).
The manor, a working farm, produces crops and dairy products, while
offering lodging to a select handful of guests in comfortable double
rooms in the hacienda mansion.
SAN PEDRO's terrain lends itself to long strolls or horseback rides
through its fascinating flora. There are native medicinal plants
(such as "ñachag"), bromeliads and even orchids.
If you would like to read, or update your traveler's journal, the
"Panoramic Room" is the ideal spot, supplied with everything
you need. Meals are served in this same room, largely made of the
naturally-grown vegetables from the farm's own kitchen garden.
Guests are offered one very special service: total relaxation.
Dynamic stimulation of muscles and nerves, handled by specialists,
make each treatment a pleasantly unforgettable experience. DYNAMIS
Alphadyn, a Swiss development, cutting-edge technology in
the field of electro-stimulation, guarantees your enjoyment.
Daily outings visit the lakes of Mojanda, San Pablo Lake, Cuicocha
Lake. The town of Cotacachi (famous for its magnificent leather
products) and Otavalo (known for its crafts market bustling with
multi-colored weavings) are less than 20 minutes away. These trips
can be taken on foot, on horseback or in a vehicle. Ibarra (the
"white city") is a 30-minute drive, and Chachimbiro's
hot springs are just 55 minutes away.
SAN PEDRO is proud to receive Nature-loving visitors in search
of peace and quiet, interested in Ecuador's different regions and
