I don't know if there was a note somewhere in Tripadvisor about this, but I just contacted to make a reservation and got a note saying it has been "closed indefinitely". I just thought people should know...

This friendly guest house is run by a lovely couple. Mary is American and Nicholas is Colombian. The food is amazing! It is vegetarian and nearly all home made, bread, jam, pickles, cheese, pizzas, it is fantastic!!! The kitchen looks out over the garden and they feed the birds in the morning, so eating breakfast is a joy watching humming... More

We spent 3 nights here and cannot recommend the place highly enough. Beautifully restored and tastefully decorated old colonial house, half a block from the plaza. The garden is a great place to rest and hang out after a long walk in the beautiful surrounding country side (the walk to Guane in particular). Spent many hours lazing in the hammocks.... More

My friend and I had a great visit here, we took walk through the garden and couldn't help to feel at peace. A nice relaxed atmosphere and great food, a definite must stop if you're ever in Barichara. Thanks Mary and Nico for opening your doors to us.

From the moment we stepped foot in to Greengoes Guesthouse, we knew we were going to love it. So much so that we immediately extended our 2 night stay to 3. Greengoes is far more than a guesthouse, more like spending a few days in a friend's home. We stayed at Greengoes with 2 other couples we had made friends... More

In 2011, I visited this Guesthouse for my birthday to get out of the noise and cold of Boston and had a wonderful time. So much so that I came back this year. This time getting there and back was a familiar journey to me so although it was easier to get there, the smiling Mary and Nico and their... More

From the moment we booked our trip until the moment Nico and Mary waved us off as we began our journey back to NL my girlfriend and I had an amazingly relaxed and enjoyable stay with Nico and Mary.

If you're looking for a bustling, action packed hotel, then Greengoes is not the place for you. What you'll find instead is a tranquil haven of peace and quiet set around a beautiful lush garden, where you can quiet easily spend the afternoon swaying in a hammock reading a book or just watching the birds. Nico and Mary are not... More

Greengoes Guesthouse is run by a couple, Nico and Mary, who have travelled the globe and worked in the hospitality industry for years. They are fascinating to talk to. And, you really could spend an entire day listening to their stories. They speak English and Spanish fluently, as well as a few other languages mixed in. The guesthouse is absolutely... More

Hands down my favorite city and guesthouse in Colombia! The rooms are simply furnished, but each has it's own artistic touches, from mosaic showers to handmade light fixtures. The breakfast is amazing- Mary cooks up something new for you each day. Fresh fruit from the garden and local coffee from a nearby finca. Nico and Mary are great hosts and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our home sits quietly in the beautiful colonial town of Barichara nestled in the mountains of Santander. This 200 year old colonial house is situated just a block away from the main plaza and the cathedral. Our concept is simple: to offer our guests a home away from home. We maintain a peaceful place to relax and reflect, a green space from which to explore Barichara and the surrounding countryside.We look forward to meeting you! ... more   less
