Description

Hostal la Finca is the perfect spot to stay. It’s not too easy to find but as always, to find the gems, you have to dig after them. Alexis and Mathilde (the owners) are a Colombian-German family. They are super friendly and helpful and know the area which helps you to get in touch with for example the owner of a untouristy coffee-finca or the best restaurants.
The price is 15k per person, per night. You might be able to get a slightly better deal if you stay for more nights. We camped there with a VW-bus. They told us that they’ll accept campers of the same size and a bit bigger (Pickups for example). If you think your camper might be too big, just contact them and ask.
They offer a clean pool with a view down into the valley. You could also take a private room or a dorm bed there. The showers are the best we’ve seen since leaving the US with hot water and still enough pressure to enjoy. They have a private natural waterfall close by in which you can cool down after walking in the mountains. There is internet / WIFI but as it’s up in the mountains, it’s not enough to upload photos or videos/ it’s very slow! Their shared kitchen is well equipped and clean so we used it instead of using our own gas. We especially liked the atmosphere in the evening, when everyone gathers around the kitchen. They have a book-exchange too.
As I mentioned, it’s hard to find: Our GPS didn’t know the small road up the hill!
From Medellin follow the road through the tunnel (13000) and drive down until you reach San Jeronimo. There’s an Exito-Supermarket on the right (you might buy some stuff for the days at the finca). Turn right immediately after the Exito and follow the road. Drive left two times until you see the LUXOR Resort. Turn right after the Luxor and follow the dirtroad for approx. 6=7KM’s until you see “Tienda Abraham” take a left here and follow the road until you see the Finca on your left. No 4x4 needed to climb up there.

Latest Check-Ins

All has been said in the previous comments. The views are truly amazing! Just as the road up here.
The price is now COP 20000 per person just for staying the night and using the facilities (no meals or laundry included); bargaining didn't seem like an option. Could seem a bit expensive of you sleep in your car, but we didn't complain; the place is clean and quiet and you can take a nice walk to the cascade (so beautiful). There are also many fruit trees from where you can pick one or two mangos maybe (they offered us to do so, so just ask).
Don't rely on their Wi-Fi, it is very slow indeed.

Report Check-In

This place is amazing. There is enough parking for 2-3 rigs. Amazing view, cool temperatures and a pool. Warm showers and you can hike to a waterfall from the property. $15,000COP pp. Free coffee and tea and a kitchen where you can cook your own food. We highly recommend this place. Owner is incredibly friendly. There is an Exito before you turn on the dirt road if you need groceries.
