The Finca Cafetera El Balso is one if not the best ecological place I've ever stayed in my life. The gardens, the rooms, the terrace and the coffee plantation are just wonderful. A paradise in the earth. I stayed there for 4 days. Waking up early in the morning with the song of the hundred of birds announcing a new... More

When we arrived at "Finca Cafetera El Balso" we were well received. The owner and his wife greeted us at the entrance and we got a long conversation regarding the daily management of a Coffee Farm. We got a good cup of coffee and some fruit. At some point in this conversation we were interrupted and the owner left rapidly,... More

We were lucky to spend a night at the lovely Finca El Balso. Our travel plans were very awkward so we arrived late at night, but the owner was very helpful on the phone guiding my Spanish-speaking companion while i drove to its location a short distance from the main airport road. Would have been much easier in daylight, but... More

I went here with my wife for three days, two nights. Since my wife speaks Spanish, she sweet-talked the owner, Don Julian into picking us up from the airport. He was very personable. It helps if you speak the language, which we do. The first day he took the time to tell us about the area and make recommendations. He... More

We stayed at the Finca El Balso from Monday September 29th, 2008 to October 3rd, 2008, from the time we landed at Armenia Airport to the time we left everything was exceptional. Julian and Sara were perfect host, their staff at the Finca we understand were new, but were there for our every need. Julian and Sara showed us personally... More

We have now stayed twice at Finca el Balso. The villa is very conveniently located for the airport and the city of Armenia. Apart from the beauty and location of this finca we have been particularly impressed with the personal attention provided by the owners- Sara and Julian. He is a retired agronomist and knows everything about coffee cultivation. They... More
