    The main reason I came here was for the bird watching, and this place did not disappoint! With the many hiking trails and binoculars they provide you, it was truly an incredible experience to see hundreds of birds so active in the morning! I discovered the main house provides very easy access to viewing many species, including the gorgeous Barranquillo, but the hostel as well! One of the best stays nature-wise I had in Colombia.

    I came for two night and stayed a week. The view is stunning and you don't have to walk far to enjoy the higher points of view. Coffee tour was very interesting and the Los nevados tour was a great experience ending in the hot springs. The kitchen is surprisingly well equipped. Bring lots of stuff to cook with but also don't miss their homemade pizza dough! I enjoyed swinging in the hammock watching the birds and the mountains while drinking loads of coffee. It's a small paradise

    Beautiful facilities, good food and very informative tours making it an overall excellent stay. The road to get there is not in too good a shape so you should plan to arrive by car. Once you arrive, you will find yourself in a lovely, natural landscape. All three houses are really nice and offer good value.

    The hostel at the Hacienda great option for people who don't want to break the bank. They have a pantry to buy food to cook dinner since that is really the only option in the evening and it's not the most well stocked but it's sufficient for a night or two. Generally clean and chill. I wouldn't stay too long for lack of things to do other than the coffee tour / shared pool at the main house (or expensive - albeit lovely - day tours from the hostel), but it is worth it for >2 nights!!

    The place is too far from the city center with no options of transport to the hostel other than a bus that leaves at only 2 times in the day and picks you up again outside the city, so you have to find a way to get to this pick up location too. When we arrived, late at night, after taking the worst road, with signs that take you to the wrong place there was only one woman taking care of it, we were the only guests and she didn’t seem to know her way around it.
