I was recommended Jardin Botánico by a friend and it did not disappoint. Just a short flight from the in city airport in Medellin. I was met at the airport and taken in a tuk tuk to the beach where I was met by the host Luisa. For those of you still struggling to learn Spanish Luisa speaks perfect English! The hotel is on 5km of almost deserted beach. It is a beautifully constructed wooden building that works perfectly with the jungle backdrop. My room had its own bathroom and private terrace with a hammock to while away the hours with a good book. All your meals are included in the price and I can honestly say it was the best food I've eaten in Colombia. The tuna empanadas on the first night were a real high point. Two local women prepare all the meals using local sourced produce. Luisa arranged for me and two other guests to go for a hike in the jungle. The guide was very knowledgeable and the path suitable for all abilities. I cannot recommend Jardin Botánico highly enough. If you are looking for somewhere off the normal tourist trail this is the place. I am looking forward to going back already.

I planned on staying two nights and ended up staying more than a week :)! Points that i wrote down in my diary to not forget: - sea is clear and has perfect temperature - food is amazing + healthy (need some of the recepies) - rooms are clean simple and cozy - sounds: only waves and birds and sometimes pans and potts outta the kitchen :) - there is wifi and always clean water to shower - you have a beach for your own, most of the times it was really JUST me on the beach(which is super clean and long) - thounds of animals like birds crabs frogs butterflies and fish - there are NOT many Mosquitoes! Activities: go fishing , kayaking, hiking with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide, lie in a hammock

Already getting there is something special with the small airplane, the taxi und the boat. The rooms are basic, the food was excellent. Fresh fish in many different ways with salads, vegetables and lots of fruit juices. We were out of whale-watching season, so we were total alone at the long beach with a lot of crabs and pelicans. We also did a tour in the forest with a very friendly and patient guide. The location is remote, but still had a WIFI, which worked nearly always. We returned with a lot of good memories and the plan to go again to this region, this time to watch whales :-)

The flight alone from Medellin to Bahia Solano is an adventure. you leave from a small airport in the middle of the sprawling city of Medellin in a small propeller airplane and therefore hava a fantastic view of the city and the landscape. Arriving in Bahia Solano we were met by the co-owner of the guesthouse, who had arranged for a 'taxi' (a three wheeler, whose driver avoided expertly the potholes in the road) to the small port, where the outboard boat beloning to the Jardin Botanico was waiting for us. Plan to wear flipflops, it makes life a lot easier! After a short boatride we arrived in Paradise. The guesthouse is as close to the ocean as comfortable, the entracne way lined with hibiscus bushes. The rooms are simple, with a shared bath room on each floor; the top of the shower - cold water only, but hot is really not needed in this tropical place - is open to the trees in back of the house. The food, prepared freshly for each of the three meals, is simply delicious as well as ample. Do book some guided walks through the Jardin Botanico and remeber to bring some cotton socks as you will need to wear rubber boots (wellies) that are provided by the guesthouse. The boatride through the backwaters and then out to the ocean for whalewatching is one of the most beautiful experiences you can have - the guesthose is also located to the protected rainforrest area by ourpiece.com
