Bird watching in La Palma y el Tucan

 

Zipacon “Zipa’s weeping” is a secret for many, a sacred place where the stories of the Muisca were formed. Hotel La Palma and Tucan is located not far from Zipacon and the owners of the hotel have developed a sustainable economy with more than 200 families, helping them to produce the best quality coffee. It is not only the coffee that recognizes them, it is the way in which they have immersed themselves in these mountains caring for the ecosystem, respecting the free will of the fauna and flora.

 

This is a tour to thematic hotel, where our hosts will allow us to enjoy the surroundings with style, the best Colombian flavor, enjoying the aroma and the body of a good coffee, with a landscape and a comfort that when we are adventurers and explorers of nature is hard to find.
