Trip Planner: South America / Colombia / Valle del Cauca Department / El Cerrito / Hacienda El Paraiso
The lush scenery of an old sugarcane plantation comes to life at Hacienda El Paraiso. The hacienda was formerly owned by author Jorge Isaccs who became famous for his book “Maria” (which was later adapted into a movie). The gardens feature a peaceful, romantic vibe coupled with the subtle sound of the local river flowing through the surrounding canals. Browse the small shop offering wine tastings and scented candles, and later relax under the shade of the gazebos while enjoying a traditional beverage. Guides will narrate the story of Ephraim and Mary while giving you a tour of the home here, bringing the literature to life.

The place is awesome. Just let take you into Jorge Isaac's Efrain and Maria story and walk through the rooms of an old but rich house. Then, go just in front of the hacienda and enjoy the different dishes from Valle del Cauca. Also hire a paragliding tour and enjoy the atmosphere in Valle del Cauca.
Our tour guide was very animated and really enjoyed telling us the history and stories of the author and his home. Very worth while visit.
