The Experience

Enjoy our nature, where you can find peace and nature sounds, around of rivers, mountains, where you can appreciate the Colombian Andes with a vegetation like in the Amazons, with huge trees complete green all year, every year, surrounded of birds with many colors and a lot of wild animales (of course, no dangerous). This area is famous in Colombia for our cocoa beans, used for chocolate makers to make the most delicious chocolates.

It was AWESOME. The most peaceful i've felt in my.entore life. when i had a problem the whole entire family went out of their way to solve it. the dogs, the kindness from the family anf all who were at the farm. it was an awesome experience and later down the line when my spanish is better i hope tp return if possible! i will say i didn't da lot, but it provided an AMAZING opportunity to connect with myself. everything was calm everyday. my only qualm is the bathroom& shower wassometimes a little gross to use.

These two weeks have been a great experience with Miguel and his welcoming family with whom we shared amazing moments and many cultural exchanges around chocolate of course, but also food and games !

I had a wonderful time at the farm! Miguel and his family are very caring and wonderful people. Miguel taught me a lot about the farm and how to work with it, as well as teaching me more about Colombia and its relationship with the farm. The food is great (you get 4 meals a day) and the farm is a wonderful place if you are looking for some time away from society. Plus, I got to eat a lot of one of the best chocolate in the world!

This has been such an amazing experience. The people are so welcoming and kind, they'll make you feel as a part of their family and will teach you about the cocoa process. The place is beautiful, perfect if you're looking for a getaway. The nature here is so pretty, you can swim in the river just by yourself and enjoy being surrounded by trees and gorgeous vegetation. It's a place for brave people though. Be ready for some hard work which involves farm animals and physical activity, but also for peaceful life away from everything. You should expect a long trip as well. Bring tons of bug spray!
