We stayed at the neighbor hostel la Peña and decided to go explore la casa en el aire and do the canopy. They charged 25k COP for that but also 20k COP for getting into the property. I told them that we just wanted to do the canopy but they were unable to provide us only that service. When we arrived there walking to get a beer, we notice that we were not welcomed by the employees. What a shame!

Wonderful and delightful time shared with friends. It is a really comfortable place and the view is stunning. The hammocks ride is the best. We got very Lucky as we even got a drone picture.

Time spent at the house itself was a magical experience. House set on the rock in the middle of nature was wonderful. All info provided by a girlfriend of the owner was accurate also with the info how to get to the place. BUT: Since we came to the city of Abejorral, confusion and taking advantage started. In whatsapp messages was mentioned that for 10000COP we will get a transfer from the city to the actual place. Okay... but nobody told us that actually some of us might be sitting at the cargo area of the truck. Well... We also waited one hour when we came to the city - because... we have been told many reasons - weather, more people coming... etc Ok so we left after an hour waiting. We came there, views were wonderful, we had a good time. Suspicion started next day when Ricardo started to ask us when we want to leave. When we said we want to catch the bus that leaves at 3pm he asked us if we cannot leave later and we said no. His face expressions were something between: “damn it and what I will do”. Initially he proposed we would leave Casa at 11:30am and that we will have plenty of time to eat lunch. Then he said 12:30 and then he said 2pm. When I talked to him that if we leave at 2pm there is no time that we will catch the bus that leaves at 3. So when I insisted that we leave at 1:30 we left the house 1:30. He seemed that he just does not want to leave that “early”. He took us by a longer road to the place where the car would leave from to the city. It was total of 10! people to fit onto a car. 3 were inside, Ricardo took the best place in the front after confrontation with another guy who is supposed to sit in the front and in the trunk area. Ricardo said something like: “you really think I would go to he back?” After, some guys from Israel asked the driver if they are going to pay also 10000cop when they are uncomfortable at the trunk. DRIVER said he would go for free. And then when ww arrived 2:58 we were in a rush of buying tickets - they sent us to some ticket both where we bought the tickets - but with different company that we came and with much less seat space in between. We were thinking that we take the same comfortable bus (trans unidos) to abejorral. But no... Obviously he had some commission deal with the bus company cause they were asking our names? when we were buying bus tickets. In addition, driver asked for money 5000cop from the people sitting on the trunk. They started arguing that the driver said it for free and he argued that he said 5000. Ricardo even touched with hand the wallet of the guy, trying to get the money... so rude! Overally: House in the air is wonderful idea but the human factor of employees really downgrade the place. Guys were very pushy offering extra attractions and when u said when u do not want to do they seemed offended and started to ask why not. I could honestly said that Ricardo ruined the overall experience.. otherwise I would give 5 star

This site was difficult to get to but well worth the trip! We did a number of activities, including the zipline, a wilderness hike to an owl cave, resting in the suspension net, and hanging out in hammocks above the ground. Some of the activities were slightly overpriced, but I would still do the same activities and more if I were to return. The zipline is your standard zip across a wide open valley. It's a fun experience, but probably not worth the cost. The hike we took the owl cave, however, was definitely worth it!! We trekked for a few hours in total, through some fields, through forest and jungle areas, and up a river. We did this hike in the rain, and it just made the experience all the more exciting and fun! Bring a long-sleeved shirt and long pants, closed-toed shoes that can get wet. (Bring an extra pair of shoes for more activities and indoor shoes for the house as well, as clothes won't dry quickly here.) Don't take anything unnecessary with you, and make sure all of your valuables are water-protected. You will be hiking in a river! The cave at the end of the trail is huge, beautiful, spectacular! Totally worth it! If I were to go again, I would definitely add one activity to our list: rappelling! You have to get up pretty early in the morning to do this, but it looked amazing and it's definitely a great trip for the thrill seeker! Special notes: The owner of the house does not speak English, though he's very capable of getting information across and loves to participate with his guests. If you make the request, he can find English-speaking guides to join the trip. They don't earn much for their service though, so I recommend that you tip them for their time. If you look through the drain in the bottom of the bathtub, you can see the ground below the house.

We went here with a group of friends and it was amazing, it's definitely worth it to go up in the hammocks, but the best thing about this aerohostel is the amazing views and beautiful night sky. It's far from Medellín but it is definitely worth the trip. There's 3 different types of accomodation: the house, refuge, cabin for couples. We stayed n the refuge and it was perfect for the 5 of us. I would recommend this to everyone and would love to go back.
