The Airbnb booking entitles you to accommodations in the new house and access to all common areas of the property. You’ll have the house to yourself and will only share it with those you’re traveling with. Bring your own food and do your own cooking or ask us to do the grocery shopping for you and to hire a local cook to have food ready for you upon arrival.

EVENTS: These are some of the events that we have hosted for some of the groups that have stayed with us. Yoga retreats, Meditation retreats, Bicycling tours, Family reunions, Birthdays, Weddings, and Corporate events, in some cases we rent the property and we guide and support the group to setup up the event. Our preferred option is for you to hire us to do an all-inclusive/stress-free event.

The house is set on a hill on 100 hectares overlooking the Playas dam, making it an ideal place for adventure lovers. You can horseback ride and hike among the clouds, swim, and canoe down at the hydroelectric dam or just watch the colorful and exotic birds. The property is a farm. Although the rooms and bathrooms are functional and furnished, you should not expect the luxury of the city. The decor is rustic and it is a property meant to be immersed in nature. You will have the chance to interact with cattle, horses, dogs, cats and plenty of birds, etc..

My love for the PAISA culture has inspired me to rebuild LA TIENDA (A Paisa is someone from a region in the Northwest of Colombia, including the part of the Andes in Colombia). This place is very close to my heart. It was built by my grandparents. My parents met here and I was born in the original house. Rebuilding the place was a way to give back to my family. I love seeing them get together, play together, cook together and share family time together. It gives me great joy to have had the chance to keep the ranch within the family and I am now happy to share my place with you and your family. We will do everything in our power to make sure that your family and friends have a memorable stay. Click my profile picture to learn more about us and the Story of the ranch, which was established in 1950.

If you have something in mind that we do not describe below, feel free to contacts us, we have a very diverse team that can make your event happen and make it memorable.

EVENTS: Yoga, Birthdays, Weddings, and corporate events, in some cases we rent the property and we guide and support the group to setup up the event. Our preferred option is for you to hire us to do an all-inclusive stress-free event, which could include all or a combination of the following arrangements: Accommodation, transportation (pick-up/drop off), grocery shopping, chef and musicians.

BICYCLING: In Nov 2018 Four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome (Team Sky) and some of his teammates put in a few off-season kilometers in Colombia at the Giro de Rigo, a 140km recreational ride that started in Guatapé and finished there again after passing through San Rafael and San Carlos. Since then we have hosted multiple times national and international groups that come to do the same tour that Chris Froome and Rigo did.

PUB-CRAWL ON HORSEBACK: Pub-crawl on horseback in San Rafael’s Main Square. We arrange the rental of the horses and they can be shared by the group. Each horse will have a handler to help you enjoy the experience.

GROUP HORSEBACK RIDING AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD: Recommended for experienced riders. We can arrange for a cavalcade, western style, around the neighborhood or around the property. During the ride, you will have plenty of opportunities to take pictures. We can take groups of 4 people for one or two hours at the time. ($$)

HORSEBACK RIDING WITHIN THE GARDENS OF THE HOUSE: Recommended for kids and inexperienced riders. Learn to ride western style within the safety of the gardens of the property. We can arrange to have a horse handler teach you how horseback ride and guide you as you get familiar with steering. We can also take pictures of you during the experience. ($)

THE POT GATHERING PICNIC (El Paseo de Olla): One important custom or tradition in Colombian culture, which is particularly popular in rural areas, is the ‘Pot Gathering’. This much-loved ritual encourages Colombian families to gather beside their local river, and share the traditional Colombian dish: Sancocho. This typical stew mixes chicken, pork or beef rib with plantain, potato, corn-on-the-cob, cassava, tomato, and cilantro, served with rice and avocado. The purpose of the ‘Pot Gathering’ picnic is to reunite family and friends to share their successes, celebrate special occasions or just have an excuse to bring everyone together. You incur in transportation and hiring of the local cook cost.

HIKING AROUND THE PROPERTY: We encourage our guests to hike around the property. We can provide rubber boots to make the experience safer and more comfortable. You can hike on your own or you can join our daily morning hike to keep an eye on the livestock. The property has breathtaking views that provide great opportunities to take amazing pictures. There are four small freshwater springs that can be visited. Free of charge.

CAMPING: Bring your own tent, set up the tent in the gardens of the main house and share this experience with your kids or let the kids have this experience by themselves, while you keep an eye on them from the house. The surrounding of the property has plenty of places with amazing views where you can set up a proper camp.

SUGAR CANE PLANTATION: PANELA MAKING: Available Thursdays and Fridays. Despite having the highest brown sugar consumption per capita in the world, it produces almost a million and a half tons per year, Colombian sugar production is still done almost all by hand in the sugar cane mills. Join the local farmers and take an active part in the Panela making process. The farmers will prepare, before your eyes, local and traditional sweets for the group to enjoy. The farmers do their productions on Thursdays and Fridays, early in the morning. The group can join the farmers and be part of the experience. If the group can’t join Thursdays or Fridays, we can arrange to do it on a different day. The farmers need a 24-hour notice to be able to collect the sugarcane. Group cost ($$)

AREPA MAKING PROCESS: Traditional breakfast with Arepa, hot chocolate and fresh cheese at Carmen’s house. We arrange a visit to Carmen’s house where she will prepare a traditional breakfast on an open fire stove. You get to be part of the Arepa making process, hot chocolate preparation. Her house has beautiful gardens and is surrounded by all kinds of plants and crops. It is walking distance from La Tienda. Cost is dependent on the size of the group.

COFFEE ROASTING ON AN OPEN FIRE STOVE: Seasonal experience. Visit a small coffee plantation. Learn about the coffee from picking the cherries, to processing, and be a part of the roasting process on an open fire stove. This is a morning or afternoon experience. This experience is dependent on the season.

CACAO ROASTING ON AN OPEN FIRE STOVE: Seasonal experience. Visit a small cacao plantation. Learn about the cacao production and be part of the cacao roasting process on an open fire stove. This is a morning or afternoon experience. This experience is dependent on the season.

CHICKEN BUS (CHIVA) RIDE: Available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Join the local farmers on their trip to/from town on a chicken bus. A chiva (Spanish for goat) or escalera (Spanish for ladder and stairs) is an artisan rustic bus used in rural Colombia. The buses are varied and characterized by being painted colorfully with local figures and arabesques. Most of them have a ladder to the rack on the roof which is also used for carrying people, livestock and merchandise. Ride is about $3 USD per person.

HARVEST LOCAL CROPS / FARM TO TABLE: Seasonal experience. Local farmers produce beans, corn, plantain, sugarcane, coffee, yucca/cassava and many kinds of fruits such: mangos, oranges, limes, mandarins, avocados, cacao and many others fruits. We can arrange for the group to visit a local farmer and have the experience of picking your own crops. The group gives a gratuity to the farmer for providing the experience and the produce. We can also arrange for a local cook to prepare local and traditional dishes.

COW MILKING/CHEESE MAKING: Seasonal experience. Every morning, the caretaker milks the cows and makes fresh cheese at the ranch. Talk to Alvaro (The ranch’s care taker), and coordinate with him to be part of this experience. Milking a cow looks simple but it may not be as simple as it looks, try it and let us know how your experience was. Kids will have the chance to interact and take pictures with the calves. This experience is free of charge, you just need to get up early in the morning and do it.

TRADITIONAL BREAKFAST (Buñuelos, and hot chocolate): Buñuelos are a local delicacy made with white cheese, cornstarch, eggs, and milk. Buñuelos look like puffy fried dough balls. They are very popular at the ranch, we make them with our own cheese and we serve them with Colombian hot chocolate. Let us know if you would like to have them for breakfast and we can hire a local cook to prepare them for you.

BASKETBALL / MINI SOCCER: The local school is about 100 meters away. The school has a basketball and a mini soccer court. Bring your own ball and feel free to use them at your leisure. Free of charge.

FISHING: If you are into fishing, the Playas dam is a 5-minute drive or 20-minute walk. The Jaguas dam is a 15-minute drive and the Guatape dam is a 40-minute drive. You can do this on your own or we can arrange a canoe rental for the afternoon.
