  • The Hacienda's Church is only available for Roman Catholic ceremonies.

  • Civil or other types of ceremonies can be performed at the Hacienda, but not in the Church.

  • For legally valid CIVIL weddings, Ecuador's law imposes certain conditions if BOTH bride and bridegroom are non-Ecuadorian citizens and neither party is a legal resident in the country: there is a relatively lengthy minimum stay in Ecuador and both parties need a special Visa. Please write for further details, or –better even- consult with the nearest Ecuadorian Consulate Office.

  • For Roman Catholic religious wedding ceremonies, and unless the couple to be married is going to stay in Ecuador for a substantial amount of time, the preferred procedure is to make all the arrangements at the hometown's Roman Catholic Parish, so that the marriage will actually be registered there. After fulfilling all the requirements at the local Parish, ask the Pastor to send a request to our Parish for the physical ceremony to be performed in Ecuador.

  • For religious ceremonies of other denominations, please consult with the appropriate local religious authorities.
