“Nestled in the emerald green Los Nevados mountain range sits this absolute gem of a retreat. La Serrena is a rolling, twenty-hectare farm just a short walk above the small town of Salento. With incredible food, amazing common areas, luxury safari tents and activities galore – this should be on every backpacker’s checklist!”
La Serrena Eco Farm & Hostel: Salento, Colombia
What makes La Serrena unique?
Awesome Activities: Salento has long been regarded as one of the best places in the Coffee Region to kick back and relax with a book. That said, the nearby Cocora Canyon offers stunning treks and La Serrena are able to organise horse-riding, coffee tours and mountain biking in the nearby mountains.
Amazing Views: Seeing the mist pour over the mountains whilst the sun sets is a truly incredible experience. From La Serrena, you can see some of the best sunsets in all of Colombia…
Incredible Food: Every day, the staff prepare an absolutely amazing dinner which is shared by everyone and extremely cheap – we are talking plate after plate of food (and a beer or two) hand-made in the bustling kitchen for the backpacker hordes!
Nightly Bonfires: The perfect place to chill out with a beer after riding a horse or tramping through the bush, invite the friendly staff over and they will probably join you!
Luxury Safari-Style Tents: If you want to stay somewhere truly unique, check out the incredible safari-style tents complete with queen size beds, antique furniture and a raised balcony offering stunning views.
