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 ride to the ranch is cute, is a House that commemorates the story of a great writer, really worth much go, there are secured in the tour guide and is included in the entrance ticket which is economic. A delicious artisanal wine sold in stores. The only thing sad and what rating a little low, is because they sell books of Maria de Jorge Isaacs work, but surprisingly in the author's own House, books publishing face and seal which sold are not original. So much so that it shows bad print on each page that also has no continuity on the pages to be able to read the work. It is unacceptable that in the author's own House, this fraud is committed by what I do the complaint to make it not happen more.

  • What amazing site, a very pretty House surrounded by roses of all colors, channels, water features, waterfalls that bring freshness to the garden! Extraordinary panorama on the fields of sugar cane. Of after some people who made a guided visit at the same time that we, the guide tells nonsense, should be so researching further Jorge Isaaks Hispano-American writer who wrote 'Maria' to judge... For the rest we strongly recommend the visit which gives a good idea about how to live the large landowners of the region. The hacienda closed at 16:30.

  • I liked the landscape of the valle del Cauca may be seen from your balcony; rose bushes are precious and sold a few economic and very rich ice cream inside (cones $3,000 with three balls of ice cream) there's not much where to sit inside the House Museum and the visit is definitely better with guide

  • A great historic place in Colombia based on the love story of Maria and Efrain. The house is really beautiful with lot of belongings from that century. Being from another country, knowing the history of Colombia and Maria was a really beautiful experience for me.
  • 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.
