Hacienda El Paraiso, El Cerrito

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.

  • The hacienda paradise is definitely a magic place for their love story and the landscape that is observed, a panoramic view of the Valle del Cauca from there. It is beautiful to tour the place and see how conserved are all your furniture while you transport you in time with the wonderful stories of the guides. A totally wonderful place! And not to talk about if chose it how in our case to take photos pre or post matrimonial! Attack!

  • The landscape is beautiful. The hacienda has guides that make tours, at least every hour, which explains a bit of history on the site and of course the novel. It has a nursery and parking. Allowing entry of a pet with one weight of less than 9 kilos, it should remain with collar and leash, when entering the House must remain loaded (in arms), should be a bag to collect your needs. The gardens are beautiful and full of roses. However, I do not recommend to go with small children, it is a visit to a museum style. Interestingly, have to guide and know the history. Fence can do paragliding, go to restaurants with typical food of the region, although people who distributed flyers of these restaurants are organized close to the entrance of the estate and can be quite annoying and persistent. There is also fried food with Papa Rellena, Aborrajados and pies among other jobs. In addition to a good job cholados.

  • If you like history Well you have to visit this place The story of true love between to young people Efrain and Maria The book is called Maria If you can get your hands on the book before visiting, it will open your eyes to this amazing love story
  • 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.
  • Friendly and tourist place of a literary historical romance.
