Casa Oropéndola is set at a lofty 1600ms, in the heart of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta cloud forests, overlooking lush rainforest and coffee fields. The stunningly set property is located an hour from Santa Marta, the nearest city, and a 5-hour drive from Cartagena.
The house can only be taken privately and sleeps up to 8 guests over 4 ensuite bedrooms. Casa Oropéndola comes fully staffed with housekeeping, a private chef and local guide.
Breakfast typically feature a kaleidoscope of fresh fruit and delicious eggs, served on the veranda with views over the jungle canopy towards the Caribbean sea.
Days are warm (high 20s) and are spent exploring coffee plantations or walking to hidden ancient ruins and little-known waterfalls for delicious picnics. Evenings are cool, perfect for log fires, lanterns, board games and a glass of wine.
Walkers, birders and botanists will be particularly happy here with this area of Colombia home to an incredible biodiversity of flora and fauna, including countless butterflies and 400 different species of bird.
Those interested in exploring the infamous Lost City can do so either as a demanding 5-day trek through the jungle, or by helicopter straight from Casa Oropendola.
