Interesting - Gardens are the best part!

Lots of old machinery for processing sugar cane. You can get a guide, but its nice to just wander through the gardens at your own pace.

We did a day trip out of Cali and went to Buga ( that is a must) then stopped by the Museo de la Cana on the way back... It is an old cane Hacienda that has been converted to a museum where you self walk to learn about the history of cane, which is also the history of the... More

I've visited this place a few times and I can never get enough of it. The place is absolutely beautiful: its gardens are well kept and the hacienda is really gorgeous. I recommend you to wear sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, put on mosquito repellent and you'll be good to enjoy a day at a beautiful historical place. My only complaint... More

Beautiful gardens and very well maintained. Interesting history of the pressing of the sugar cane throughout time and the different regions in Colombia. The entrance cost is $8000 colombian pesos per person plus whatever tip you want to give to your guide at the end of the tour. The tour is about 1 hour long but not tiring.

The house is very interesting and the gardens are amazing. It feels very much like a botanical garden. The small lakes and ponds together with a beautiful stream make the place very relaxing.

Much more than a museum of sugar cane machinery, it was a fabulous botanical garden with beautiful walkways. A private tour or indecent exploring is available.

This is a beautiful place and very well-maintained. There is a tour that takes you through the lush grounds. First you see different early methods used to extract the cane juice from the cane. Then you get to the more modern mechanical methods used in the late 1800s and 1900s. Most impressive is the huge waterwheel. At the end there... More

We were lucky that on a Monday there wasn't another person in the whole facility, so a guide had nothing but time for us. The complete production of sugar cane as was performed by manual labor was explained . Some of the original equipment in its natural state is available to touch and move. The grounds are awesome in that... More
