A while back we posted a detailed review of Hacienda Zuleta in Ecuador. This week I read the April issue of National Geographic Traveler and there’s a great Ecuador “Valley of the Volcanoes” story in there.

You’ll have to get the magazine to see the whole thing, which is quite good, but they have posted some of the best photos from in and around Hacienda Zuleta.

Zuleta is the former home of two presidents, a father and son. Imagine if George Bush Sr. and Jr. turned their Maine mansion into a hotel, but added an embroidery cooperative and a cheese factory. Hmmmm, can’t see that happening. (An in-house hedge fund and oil drilling cooperative perhaps?) Well, this one has more acreage anyway and the weather is better.
