This room in our converted stables has a private entrance double bed and ensuite bathroom.

The space

El Mocambo sits on a 200 acre farm on the Rio Quindio in the sleepy village of Boquia, only minutes away from historic Salento. nine private rooms and two dorms are dispersed between the 150 yr old farm house and converted stables. Fully furnished common areas and a wrap-around porch provide ample space for socializing and relaxing. The hammocks and kiosk by our natural pool are almost impossible to leave and an updated kitchen offers all the cookware necessary to make a gourmet meal. All guests have access to our natural swimming pool, 100m of private riverfront access, on site hiking, mountain bikes, wi-fi, breakfast and a twice daily shuttle service to Salento free of charge. We also offer on-site laundry service and a small tienda (general store) both at very reasonable rates. Tours to local coffee farms, horseback riding, Valle de Cocora and spanish classes can all be arranged at reception.

Great and beautiful location, it is difficult to get to by car because the road is hard to drive in smaller cars. Otherwise everyone is very nice and the view is beautiful!

El Mocambo is located in a small town just at the bottom of the hill from Salento, so you get the cool mountain air and all the perks of the cafeteria without the tourism. Mike and Naomi are extremely welcoming and its great to see how passionate they are about their business. I would definitely stay again - I felt like part of the family. There are also some great hikes - which you can see from the deck of the house - and its a short walk to the river

We ended up staying an extra night because this place was so amazing. Mocambo is perfectly located near Salento but still in the country (a short 40min walk, albeit up a big hill). If you plan on staying here, you need to be the kind of person that truly appreciates nature, quiet, and serenity. The kitchen and the room was utterly spotless and the staff was remarkable. They were very accommodating with our late arrival and provided an amplitude of suggestions on activities to do in the area. One of the activities is the hike the Valle de Cocora. Jennifer knew we were waking up at 4:30am to do this hike, so she provided us with all the ingredients to prepare our own breakfast as we wouldn't be around for the actual service from 7 to 10. Alfredo even picked us up a bottle of soda on his way back from town one evening! There are not enough words to describe how pleasurable our stay was here. From the cleanliness, the accommodations, the services, and the general vibe... our four day stay at Mocambo was near perfection. We would definitely stay here again.

We had another great stay at el mocambo!!! Just off the beaten track for some very peaceful days and nights on a beautiful farm while enjoying a traditional old house within reach of the river.... It's a short walk to the local town and a short bus ride to salento- and the staff are wonderful- friendly and attentive- not to mention some great dogs- we will be back!!
