The Finca Paraiso Caracolí is set between the jungle and forestation of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and the neighbourhood of the village of La Tigrera. We are just 15 minutes from Santa Marta and Minca. While we are not completely isolated and have contact with the locals, it is still possible to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding wildlife and the gentle roaring of the “Tamaca” creek. The Finca Paraíso Caracolí offers an authentic experience of rural life in the Colombian Caribbean. Ideal for families or small groups who want to stay for a couple of days or more. It is an excellent location to start adventuring around the Sierra Nevada or to discover the vibrant city of Santa Marta. Finca Paraiso Caracolí, with its gated parking is accessed via a footbridge.

The Finca Paraíso Caracolí offers an authentic experience of rural life in the Colombian Caribbean. Ideal for families or small groups who want to stay for a couple of days or more. It is an excellent location to start adventuring around the Sierra Nevada or to discover the vibrant city of Santa Marta. Finca Paraiso Caracolí, with its gated parking is accessed via a footbridge. The property is set amongst 0.7 hectares of land, which is encircled by a river (especially beautiful at the far end of the property). The property comprises the main house, attached to which is the guest house with its dedicated entrance and terrace, and an upstairs bedroom also with its own dedicated entrance. You are welcome to use all parts of the property other than the main house. During your stay, there will be only our caretaker. If you are lucky during your stay, you will see toucans, hummingbirds, and other wildlife special to the Sierra Nevada. The property is typical of the area, set amongst Caracoli, Mango and palm trees, and is an ongoing project of ours where we hope to build a simple place where we and our guests can isolate ourselves from screens and simply relax. We welcome small groups that want to have a genuine travel experience, resting in connection with the environment. Note that the property does not have air conditioning, but ceiling and standing fans are provided. As is typical on the coast of Colombia, water in the shower is not heated, but is very refreshing in the heat of the Caribbean. It is possible to take refreshing baths in the creek and contemplate wildlife or simply take a dip in the mini pool located in front of the guest house. In that case, you just have to tell Fernando (our caretaker) to fill it with fresh water from the creek. We cannot be responsible for any contact you may have with local wildlife. Be cautious with insects and other wild animals. Lovely dogs living on the property- Olivia and Solo, our Finca dogs are friendly but should not be intrusive. More
