The Route of the Flavors of María owes its name to María, the eternal lover of Efraín in the maximum exponent of Latin American romantic novel, “María”, by Jorge Isaacs, which was written in the framework of the iconic Hacienda El Paraíso.
The Route of the Flavors of María is a unique, innovative initiative in the Department of Valle del Cauca. It is led by the Corporación Destino Paraíso (Destination Paradise Corporation), with the backing of a group of public-private entities in the region, and was designed for the purpose of articulating gastronomic and lodging offers with the tourist attractions of the municipalities of Palmira, El Cerrito, Ginebra, Guacarí, and Buga.
