  • Description


    Hola! Jordan and Alejandra are young, energetic, fun, loving US/Colombiana couple who met 5 years ago in the states.

    We now moved to Colombia two months ago to start the project of our dreams. We are opening a Boutique Hotel and looking for some helping getting the place prepared for our opening.

    Our stunning home sits on 5 private acres on a private lagoon. That's right! We are waterfront on the wonderful crystal clear lake near the town of Guatape. The property has water access to swim and enjoy our very own rope swing. The property has a ton of fruit trees and it's own soccer field. Thousands of tourists come here daily to climb the famous "La Piedra" and we have spectacular views of "The Rock" from the property. We are a short 10 minute ride into the town of Guatape, which is famous for its color filled houses and Zacalos. People travel from all over to take those famous Instagram shots!

    Living near Guatape is amazing, you can kayak, swim, fish, hike to waterfalls, jetski, wakeboard, or simply relax near the tranquil lake. We are close to San Rafael where you can plunge into a crystal clear river and relax in the jungle. My wife and I are very loving people and we always enjoy life whenever we can. We love meeting new people and hosting.
