  • Staying at this hostel is special. The hiking through the forest, the sound of the rivers and waterfalls, the birds and plants are magical. The most peaceful place I have ever been to.  more »

  • This place is MAGIC... Howling monkeys, rare bird species, untouched jungles, jaw-dropping vistas, an old Spanish-cut trail... staying here is like stepping back in time. Jose’s family guards and protects an incredible property that pierces the heart of a national wildlife and nature reserve. One of the most important water sources for the entire region originates here, and Jose and his family strive to ensure that it remains pristine and untouched for future generations. The energy and vibes of this place are simply serene... tranquil. You’ll never want to leave.
  • PUT ME IN TOUCH WITH ANOTHER SIDE OF COLOMBIA. As far as I am concerned, coming to Colombia without visiting this family-run natural reserve is like visiting the Louvre without glimpsing the Mona Lisa. Reserva La Rivera is without a doubt a living work of art, from the immense and deep visual beauty, to the glorious gestalt of flavors within its edible forest and the salivating homemade Colombian treats made by Jose's mom and the cottage caretaker, to the sentiment and affection of the family, employees and volunteers dedicated to what I understood is a passion project to bring together the well-being of nature and man in one (sacred) space. A dream, a newColombia, a reminder of what is possible when the wisdom and grace of nature meets the creativity and love of man. Thank you.
