Finca Ecologica El Maco is a unique combination of farm and hotel, located in San Agustin Colombia (1700 m a.s.). San Agustin is famous for it's archaeological park, one of the most important archaeological sites of the continent. The region was inhabited by a mysterious civilisation which left behind several hundred freestanding monumental statues carved in stone, as well as a number of tombs. This and the beauty of the unspoiled vegetation, caused by the mild subtropical mountain climat, attracts travellers from all over the world. Be it riding horses, trekking, river-rafting or archaeology, San Agustin is one of Colombia's best adventure destinations.
My name is René Suter. When I travelled through South America for the first time in 1987, San Agustin allready fascinated me a lot. In 1994, I moved from Switzerland to this charming village. Step by step, I constructed the Finca Ecológica El Maco. El Maco isn't a normal hotel. Staying with us, you will live in unique rooms and you'll be part of our egolocial farm. If you wish, you may cook by yourself (we sell our ecological products to our guests for little money and we have a small guest-kitchen) or you may enjoy our specialities in our Restaurant El Maco.
We hope to see you soon!
