Landmark
The lush scenery of an old sugarcane plantation comes to life at Hacienda El Paraiso. The hacienda was formerly owned by author Jorge Isaccs who became famous for his book “Maria” (which was later adapted into a movie). The gardens feature a peaceful, romantic vibe coupled with the subtle sound of the local river flowing through the surrounding canals. Browse the small shop offering wine tastings and scented candles, and later relax under the shade of the gazebos while enjoying a traditional beverage. Guides will narrate the story of Ephraim and Mary while giving you a tour of the home here, bringing the literature to life.

  • Breath taking views of the gardens. The diverse colors of roses are amazing. It did help that the love story was complemented with the gardens and the views.  more »
  • Hermosa.... full of history. The house is in very good condition and the garden is beautiful. The staff is very nice and helpful. The only thing is the restaurant and the games in the outside are sure...  more »
  • This old finca is so beautiful. We didn't know the story behind the house, but the setting alone was worth the drive. We also drove up the mountain behind the house until there was no more pavement.  more »

  • A beautiful hacienda in a beautiful part of Colombia. It's probably a bit more fascinating if you've read the literature ("Maria") that is set in this home. The surrounding carnival atmosphere somewhat detracts from its charms.
  • Its a very very nice and beatiful place to know about the history of colombia, and its valle del cauca, the hacienda is where one of the most iconic books "la maria" a romantic story, takes place, also free samples of wine of the region are offer there.
  • Very beutifull place specialy if you had read La Maria. Its basicaly the lace where the novel was written and staged.
  • A paradise to discover the history of the Valley
