Escape from Quito to experience the countryside
Sierra Alisos is a unique and picturesque hacienda in Tambillo, in the foothills of Mount Atacazo, and only a 50-minute car-ride away from Ecuador’s busy capital Quito. It gets its name from the native Aliso (or Alder) forest that surrounds the secluded area which it’s in. We decided to get away from the hustle and bustle for a weekend, and we were absolutely delighted with our experience. Alex and I had briefly visited the hacienda a year ago and were so impressed that we vowed to come back … and so a year later, we did!
