This place has a variety of little buildings that offer different types of accommodation from backpacker dorms, hammocks, camping, cabins for two or more, a tepee and a house yet to come. The main reception area does food and drink that is basic but good. Our cabin had a bamboo frame and comfortable bamboo beds. The walls were painted light... More

I would like to give more stars to El Maco, except a few downfalls make it slip. It is in a beautiful setting, and it is artfully designed. Very fun. We stayed in Tipi, with lots of room to spread out and plenty of places to store/hang belongings. The bathroom was open to the outdoors and was everything was very... More

Very friendly receptionist, pati was always smiling and helpful, like all staff here! Excellent room with very nicely decorated outdoor bathroom, very thoroughly cleaned, generally everything was decorated with love for details. Great currys and crepes... More

A friend recommended this place. She stayed here in 2010. When we tried to book from Belgium we found wrong information.The website is terrible outdated and it announced different prices, in reality we had to pay almost double the price 110,000 for 2 people per night instead of 60,000. When we arrived we did feel that we were disturbing the... More

Finca El Maco is an incredibly beautiful property situated just outside San Agustin town. Yes, it is a bit of a walk from town, especially the uphill portion which can be challenging after a long day, but the views, staff and facilities make it worth it. Staff know guests' names and will treat you with respect. The guest kitchen facilities... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the ' Tipi'. Very nice place to stay, friendly people, beautiful and clean accomodations, nice food in the restaurant, free wifi and the best guide of the region comes here to offer you very nice trips. It's a little bit out of the center, but a short taxi ride will bring you here. Absolute... More

Set on a hill top with lovely views of the surrounding country side this is a very tranquil place to stay. My shared cabin had a clean comfortable bed and good bathroom. Staff were very helpful in arranging a jeep tour and horse back riding with guide pacho which is a must. Breakfast was lovely and they made proper bread... More

My cabin was beautiful and a great value for the money. Comfortable bed, great bathroom and best shower I had in Colombia! I enjoyed the breakfast but I thought it was not as fantastic as the other reviews indicated. The other items on the dinner menu were a bit overpriced but good quality. I preferred eating in town but the... More

We stayed 3 days in the tipi, a nice cabaña with an outside shower. The place was clean. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpfull. The only noise we heard in the night was a crowing rooster and a moaning cow, but that makes the farm complete.
