Weddings and Honeymoons in Ecuador
Ecuador is an excellent choice for an Adventure Wedding. With excellent food, the world’s highest quality flowers, and spectacular panoramas, Ecuador is a place you can have an amazing wedding for a small fraction of the cost of a wedding in North America or Europe.
Below are a few hotels that specialize in hosting weddings and other similar events in Ecuador:
Hacienda Cusin – A romantic, tailor-made, Andean wedding at Hacienda Cusin is an unforgettable event. A luxurious country inn amidst eternally blooming gardens and nearly 400 years of colonial history. Located near Otavalo in a spectacular natural setting at the foot of the dormant Imbaburra volcano, activites like horsebackriding, mountain biking, and high tea on the balcony are not to be missed. Also perfect for honeymooners. The Tatler, London, 12/96 says “… one of the world’s best kept secrets.”
Las Palmeras – situated on a verdant hillside just north of the equator and a short walk from the world famous Otavalo indigenous marketplace, Las Palmeras is a place of astounding beauty and undisturbed tranquility. Weddings can be arranged for 5 to 100 guests. A gorgeous, comfortable, fully-equipped cottage set below the towering peaks of Imbabura and Cotacachi will be your home away from home as the scent of bougainvillea, palm trees, perennial flowers, and a blossoming blackberry orchard fill the air around you and a variety of birds perform a private concierto for you.
El Monasterio de Cusin – is just across the creek from Hacienda Cusin, a classic Ecuadorian wedding destination. El Monasterio provides lodging in 17 charming guest rooms and a family suite to accomodate large wedding parties at Cusin.
Hacienda San Agustín de Callo – few places can offer a more unusual and spectacular setting for a wedding than the Inca Chapel at Hacienda San Agustín de Callo (by John at dresshead.com). A recently renovated Incan ruin, furnishes a the level of comfort, elegance, and service fit for an Incan king. Sleep and dine inside ancient Incan walls, beneath the shadow of Cotopaxi, the world’s highest active volcano.
