About La Serrana
Our 20 hectare farm of green pastures has 360 degree views of rolling mountains and valleys. We offer horse riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, coffee tours at a local plantation, proximity to the breathtaking Valle de Cocora trek, and easy, walkable access to the real Colombian cowboy town of Salento.
Our Colombian styled Hacienda, complete with antiques, consists of three dormitories with exceptionally comfortable bunk beds, and several private rooms which sleep up to five people, all with ensuite bathrooms and hot water. All our rooms include a free breakfast and are very reasonably priced. Our common areas include a large, well stocked kitchen complete with popcorn machine (free for guests!), where you can purchase fresh milk from our own cows and other local delicacies. We have two dining tables, and a large lounge area with a wide selection of DVDs and plenty of comfortable couches and sitting areas for whiling away the hours in good conversation.
Our onsite restaurant, fed by our organic vegetable garden, serves freshly prepared, delicious dinners every weekday. Our dishes hail from around the world, using as many local and organic ingredients as possible.
At La Serrana, we welcome you to enjoy all the benefits of a perfectly preserved town with all modern necessities, alongside the tranquil beauty of our farm and hacienda.

Salento, Quindio, Colombia
La Serrana is 1.5 km outside of Salento, 1.2 kms past the cemetery on via Palestina. After passing the cemetery keep walking until you come to a split in the road. Take a left and you are there. It takes some 15 minutes and others a bit longer.
The three things that most people do in Salento is going to the Valle de Cocora, visit a coffee farm and go horseback riding.
To get to Valle de Cocora you can take a 30 minute jeep ride from the town square. The cost is 3.000 pp and leaves regularly. We have a schedule listed in the kitchen.
Our favorite coffee farm in the area is Don Elias. He is the original. A real COLOMBIAN coffee farmer. His farm is certified organic and filled with beautiful flowers, birds and lots of coffee. He is about 4 kms past La Serrana and can be reached on a 1 hr hike from La Serrana.
We can arrange a guide with horses to pick you up at the property or you can rent the horses in the valley. From La Serrana the guides usually go on the Camino de lo Indios to beautiful rivers and waterfalls. The cost is 30.000-35.000 pp and takes about 3 hours. You can also arrange a shorter or easier ride.
