I was referred to this lovely finca like most people - through word of mouth from a very good friend that wanted to ensure I didn't miss it. I almost don't even want to tell you guys about this place because the secret of it is that it's tucked away in the mountains fairly close to Medellin but far enough away where you feel like you're in a whole new world. It's the perfect "tranquilo" home away from home that I didn't expect to find.
First, it's super comfy. They have several different kinds of rooms to suit your cravings and budget. But beyond that, it feels like you're on a grand estate that's all yours to enjoy.
And I haven't even mentioned the people - the guys who run this place easily became my favorite people I met in all of Colombia. I'd go anywhere they were just to hang out again.
