Fodor's Expert Review Finca La Jorará

Finca La Jorará, , Magdalena, 470017, Colombia Fodor's Choice

A working organic farm that stretches from the coast into the hills, La Jorará offers an unbeatable experience–-picture a fresh mountain stream running down from the hills to the wild, deserted beach that's bordered by lush trees that hang heavy with fruit. Spread over three lodges, the accommodations have a farm-style rusticity that integrates with the lush surrounding gardens. There's plenty to do during the day: climb up to breathtaking lookout points; splash in the river's natural pools; or take a tour of the banana plantation. Come sunset, stretch out in a hammock and listen to the forest come alive, and then saunter down to the main house for dinner at large communal tables.

PROS

  • delicious communal meals made with ingredients from the farm
  • adventure and cultural excursions can be arranged by the owners
  • ready supply of freshly harvested fruit

CONS

  • slight noise from the distant generator, and in some rooms, the road
