Hacienda La Danesa produces dairy, cacao and teak with over 145 years of rich heritage and history, located about an hour drive from Guayaquil, Ecuador.

The menu is mostly traditional Ecuadorian cuisine mixed with a pinch of fresh international influence to bring exceptionally transcendent flavours to the table.

  • A great day excursion for travelers visiting Guayaquil and the Galápagos Islands and looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. This excursion is more than learning about cacao and a hands-on 'from tree to bar' chocolate making experience; this excursion is about immersing yourself in the Ecuadorean countryside. La Danesa is a family-owned hacienda that produces cacao, teak, sugar cane, dairy and breeds beautiful quarter pinto horses. You will be greeted by an English speaking local hostess and will guide you to the cacao plantation and introduce you to our local chocolatier where you will have the opportunity to create your own chocolate bar. You will enjoy a gastronomic three course lunch and have the opportunity to go biking and to milk one of our beloved cows after lunch. Hacienda La Danesa is also a very small lodge that accommodates up to 12 guests in luxurious rooms.
