Beautiful finca with sculptures in stone made by Alfonso Gutierrez who lives there. It worths the visit. You have to park in the gravel road where the sign is and walk for around one km down

Latest Check-Ins

visit here!!

first, park on the road and enter the finca via green gate identified by the other iOverland icon. hope you have good shoes and water.
2. walk into the farm and down the hill, past barb wire fence, through the cow poop field and further downhill on the dirt and stone trail. arrive at second green gate.
3. go through gate, follow to a shabby house with official sign and some small carvings. admire and continue walking.
4. arrive and another fancy sign and newish welcome center. they may have a volunteer collecting money, pay 30 cord pp and enter the art area. admire more small carvings and move on.
4. enter trails, keep leftish and work up the along side the mountain, there were absolutely no signs anywhere when we went but all trails were well maintained.

if you manage to find the correct mountain side trail, you will go from mild amusement at the stone petroglyph like art to suddenly wondering if you stepped into the ancient city of Petra or Egypt. like wow, he's done some amazing work.

Really great place, amazing. Fee voluntary. You can buy coffee from the farm.

Amazing place. The life’s work of a cool old gentlemen. Great hike down into a canyon with amazing views. Places to buy drinks. Wear good shoes. This is a quirky little “must see”. Note other post for parking area and path tips.

Just to add- you could take some rice, beans, fresh fruit, etc to give as a tip for your tour. But cash works too.
