  • We went with my family to celebrate the reunion of my four grandma aunties. Was more priceless see them walk for 3 hours around the nirvana farm at that age like a kids. Also we ate delicious tilapia ...  more »
  • The reserve is located about 30 minutes from Cali in cart. In the place they have restaurant, though on the road before reach several restaurants where rich local cuisine also are. To make the journey through the path should be a comfortable tennis because there are enough rise and land where if there is no grip on the feet you could slide easily. The trail is very very cute, looks much native flora of great size, fruit trees and is incredible but depending on the area where you are are very interesting micro-climates, of course you have to be very well hydrated by moisture is high, if you were silent or making little noise there are lots of birds. It is also demarcated by about 25 areas where water births, bridges and tunnels, natural look, when you reach the top there are 2 viewpoints where you can watch Palmira (another nearby major town where we can eat a delicious cholao) and brilliant green landscape, worth staying to watch the sunset. He descent is should do with much caution because is steep and the ground is uneven, by that not recommend this tour to people that have injuries of knee. At the end of the tour a very cute butterfly is species of small to a large size of many colors. Although nature speaks if same, travel has no information about the plants and wildlife that looks, but is a place that worth going, especially for those who want to be recharging energy and be in contact with nature.

  • Good food, great views. A good hiking experience overall
  • A beautiful place to visit with a wide variety of things to do. There's birds to watch, plants to admire, mountain trails to hike, a butterfly house and a nice restaurant.
  • Great food and nice landscapes!!!
  • It is a very nice place to change of environment, since we have a fast pace of life in the city, and in this place surrounded by much nature and tranquility we can disconnect from everything, filling our lungs with a delicious pure air and recharge to continue our day to day. Best regards
