Campesino Living Tour

Hacienda Santa Marta invites you to experience a unique opportunity. Join a tour to learn about the daily life of rural Ecuadorians directly from the subsistence farmers residing in one of the most remote parts of the Sierra. A tour bus will transport you from Cuenca, through the Cajas, over an unpaved road to San Gabriel de Chaucha, from which you will be shuttled to the patrimonial Hacienda Santa Marta. There you will meet local artisans at work, learn the how-tos of building with adobe and barbecue, participate in the cooking of “la comida de abuelas” or “grandmas’ cooking” from a time before rice was introduced into the diet of highlanders. See the components of traditional dress. Learn some Quichua words and expressions. Come explore the beauty and wonder of campesino living. More details and a reservation form can be found at the website:
