    We own a place for culture exchange and camping and glamping made with a lot of love which we like to share with travelers from all over the world.
    There is also a river on our land,a dog and two horses.

    We are interested in responsible, ecological tourism that respects the indigenous communities with whom we live. Silvia is located in the mountains east of the road connecting Cali and Popayan. It is a beautiful area with many trails for hiking in the mountains and a strong connections with the local culture of the indigenous Guambiano people. Also you can rent horses and make some nice tours in the nature around.
