Armenia, Coffee Region of Colombia

At Hacienda Maravelez you will experience the last of its kind -a real Colombian ranch. Along with horseback riding, river baths, mountain walks, bamboo forests, cattle ranching, homegrown fresh pineapple, poolside revelry, and Marquesian sunsets- Maravelez is a perfect gem of picturesque Colombian country life.

Due to the warm climate, the house with typical Colonial architecture, has floor to ceiling windows that slide open and remain open most of the time in communal areas with lots of fresh air circulating at all times. It preserves its original essence, with comfortable rooms and wide corridors set with hammocks for lounging. Maravelez, located in the heart of Colombia’s coffee region with gorgeous is surrounded by centuries-old bamboo forests-habitat of howler monkeys, an incredible variety of birds and unparalleled landscapes.

Hacienda meals reflect the culinary tradition of this region with most ingredients grown right there on the ranch, farm to table style. The day begins with smooth Colombian coffee followed by yoga with Miles. Chased by a ‘second breakfast’ of fresh in-season fruit, natural juices, and homemade cheese and arepas (roasted in a wood stove). After which there will be ample time to hang out, explore and adventure, horseback ride, bathe in the river or pool and whatever other delights we get to. And in the afternoon, we will offer various workshops and practices contingent on the group’s wants/needs. All followed by a delectable dinner.

This trip will give you the best of all the typical Colombian feels and a chance to enjoy the land of Gabriel Garcia Marquez that perfectly captures its magical realism essence. It will be a unique experience. One not easily forgotten. Especially after being trapped in our apartments for over a year.
