This place is aesetically alright. The kitchen definitely needs a fine tune but it´s not too bad. The rooms are clean and well lit.

They do have little wooden boxes to lock your... More

We got here late at night as we were expecting to come in late from the long trip from San Gil. We were called to confirm our arrival time. I really appreciate the courtesy call. Upon arriving our cab was paid for. We actually stayed in the Kayors vivienda turistica, and the room we had was rather spacious and very... More
