What can I say… An incredible stay! I spent 4 nights in a private cabin and I’m sorry I couldn’t spend more time there. The hosts pay attention to every detail and are on hand to help, advise or just chat with you. The establishment merges with the natural space where you can hear monkeys, birds and other animals. Everything is designed for a very relaxing stay just a few minutes from the town of Capurganá. Absolutely excellent food. Cheer up without hesitation!
