    Amazing stay! The finca is in such a beautiful spot by the river, we stayed a few nights after salento to get a bit more peace and quiet. Fireflies, stars, cabins, incredible food, free breakfast, lovely staff and the horse riding they organise is great too. Loved it so much here would recommend for anyone wanting to relax in nature but are still super close to the nearest town

    Best Hostal ever! The location is more than overwhelming and it's more like a retreat center than a hostel. The staff was really nice and I loved the dogs and all the other animals. There are a lot of things to do around Salento as well, I'd recommend staying >3 nights. It's a bit of a walk to go there from the main road where the bus stops so be prepared if you're traveling with a suitcase instead of a backpack, but apart from that I had a perfect stay.

    Es el lugar perfecto para aleharse del bullicio de la ciudad y estar en contacto con la naturaleza en todo su esplendor. No hay cosa que se le compare

    One of the nicest hostels we’ve ever stayed in! A beautiful location which is beautiful to relax in. It’s super easy to get about and into salento from here but nice to be able to stay out the town in such a lovely hostel. Would definitely recommend, we stayed in the safari tent and it was perfect

    A real paradaise, it is a beautiful and relaxing place, the staff are super helpful with everything you need, we did a tour with horses and went to the cofee valley and it was amazing! the location is outside Salento but there's bus every 15mins, however you will need to walk about 1kilomoter to get to the road.

    One of the nicest hostels I have been to. You could also call this a Resort. Beautiful and big garden, really quiet and friendly staff. Really authentic!

    It really is like in a dream. The nature around this place is just stunning. It's so quiet and peaceful that when coming from a city like Cali you really feel like on another planet. A little downside is the walk from the street about 800 meters so keep that in mind if you come with a lot of luggage. The place is clean and they serve you coffee and breakfast. I would recommend paying the extra money and staying in a private room so you can really enjoying the experience.
