You will feel like you stepped back in time. Far from the city, you are so tranquil you are able to fully live, see the stars and become one with nature.

Sugar cane cultivation in the Valle del Cauca led to great wealth and the sumptuous haciendas that may still be seen in the region. Several have been transformed into museums where it is possible to breathe the manorial atmosphere of the 19th century.

A sweet spell that seduces the senses

Hacienda El Paraíso, immortalized by Jorge Isaac’s romantic novel “María”; Hacienda Cañasgordas and Hacienda Piedechinche, home of the Sugarcane Museum, stand out. The visitor may learn about sugar cane cultivation and sugar production, while staying in less famous but equally beautiful haciendas equipped with quality comforts and services.

Valle del Cauca will allways have more to offer:
