    Description

    Our tourism project is a tourist attraction where lodging, hiking, gastronomy, waterfall, viewpoints and we also focus on the arts, the four elements that are developed in the foothills of the Amazon in the department of Caquetá. Colombia.

    We are a family made up of Sofia, Andrés, children and Yaqueline, Jorge, husband and wife, our purpose is to promote art, the four elements such as wellness tourism through art therapy. The idea arose in Andrés to build a personal farm. Seeing the ecological potential, he thought of opening trails and viewpoints which we developed as a family for two years, taking advantage of the pandemic. In 2022, the territory will expand, which enriches the land with water sources, forests. It has approximately 27 hectares, 12 hectares of them are native forests, in the short term there are plans to reforest 3 hectares of pastures with endemic timber and fruit trees from the region. This charm of nature is located 5.5 km from the urban area of the municipality of El Doncello Caquetá Colombia, a climate of 26°C, 609 meters above sea level, with views over the valleys of the Doncello and Granada rivers.

    It has built and rehabilitated trails, agricultural crops of bananas, citrus fruits, and livestock farms for smaller species such as hens, chickens and fish, which facilitates the supply of food, the intention is to make it a self-sustainable territory. The forests are diverse in terms of fauna (birds, monkeys, squirrels, borugas, armadillos, porcupines, foxes, among others). In the flora tour, endemic species of timber were evident, including: ribs, blooddragon, smoked, syringa, balsam, little cart
