Latest Check-Ins

De retour en Colombie après une absence de 10 mois due à la pandémie, il était évident que nous reviendrions à La Bonanza où nous avions passé une semaine magnifique. Nous sommes donc redescendu depuis Villa de Leyva pour retrouver le calme apaisant de La Bonanza et cet accueil si chaleureux de la famille Atmani. Nous sommes restés huit jours cette fois et avons de nouveau beaucoup apprécié cette parenthèse sédentaire dans notre vie de voyageurs. Tout est fait ici pour qu'on se sente bien, et ... on se sent bien !
"Jamais deux sans trois " dit-on, on croise les doigts !

This is one of the rare opportunities to stay at a european/us standard campground in Colombia with all amenities you could possibly need. On top it is run by a fantastic family which will do everything that you enjoy your stay in the area.

This place is a must!
very nice family who used to travel a lot with a vehicle (so they know all our need!). beautiful place, good vibes!
we just came to say high and finally stayed for a night as we were still talking after hours.
when walking in a tribe village, we could see that they're totally integrated with the locals, which says a lot on their mentality.
just go there, you won't be disappointed

Super endroit pour faire un intéressant échange multi culturel.
nous sommes juste passé dire bonjour à Kika car elle s'occupe d'un groupe WhatsApp pour les familles voyageant en amérique du Sud (ce groupe nous a été très utile, surtout pendant la pandémie, nous sommesrestés 8 mois au Pérou) et finalement nous sommes resté dormir pour la nuit tellement nous avons parlé et rigolé.
l'endroit est très sympa, la famille adorable, on ne peut que recommander!

Où sont passés tous les messages élogieux postés depuis l'ouverture de ce camping ???
Nous y étions en mars 2018 et y avons passé 2 mois fabuleux.
Aujourd'hui il ne reste que 2 messages haineux qui ne reflètent aucunement l'atmosphère et le bonheur d'être à la Bonanza !!!

Where have all the glowing messages gone since the opening of this campsite ???
We were there in March 2018 and spent 2 fabulous months there.
Today there are only 2 hateful messages that do not reflect the atmosphere and the happiness of being at Bonanza !!!

We were delighted by our journey in La Bonanza during the lockdown. To us the descriptions made about the place is real!
All have been displayed by the owners to ease our stay:
Looking for a kinesitherapist to my injured
Managing all grocery/food shopping to all guests during lockdown (challenging when considering we were about 45 persons leaving at la Bonanza for several months)
Organizing several events for guests (pizza party, BBQ, several birthdays, hamburgers day or sushi parties,…)
Always displaying empathy and listening attitude towards guests while we all were living difficult moments
Managing at their best a large group of persons with different characters and opposite points of views
Very attentive to occupy all the kids that were in lockdown such as organizing kid’s games or creativity sessions

I do thank this wonderful family for opening their house and hearts to us. We have shared a lot with them to the point we became friends.

Even though we stayed over 3 months and a half in La Bonanza, my two sons never had any tension with their kids, they did home school together every day, they cooked together, they were tinkering all time, they even have created together a mountain Bike circuit in La Bonanza !

Quite frankly, traveling for a year time in the continent, the best experiences for my sons have been the lockdown in La Bonanza with Kika, Anouar and their kids.

As far as I’m concerned, I felt being supported all time especially that I was alone managing my sons, they did so much so I can feel better.

At the end of our stay and considering the large period of stay time, our bill has been really reasonable (we were granted as well as all other travelers) a consequent discount.
We left our motorhome in La Bonanza and returned back to home country waiting for borders to reopen.

Once again thank you so much and hoping to see you again! Highly recommended place!!

Nous avons été ravi de séjourner à la Bonanza durant notre confinement. La description faite est conforme à la réalité !
Tout a été mis en place pour nous faciliter la vie :
trouver un kiné pour mon fils qui s'était fait mal à l'épaule
gérer les courses : listing et dispatching (quel travail!!)
soirées pizza, barbecue, sushis, anniversaires, hamburger...
écoute des propriétaires pour nous faciliter cette période simple pour personne.
Gestion humaine des voyageurs présents avec des caractères et points de vus très marqués
écoute pour que ça se passe au mieux pour les enfants : aide à l'organisation de grands jeux, fournitures de petits bricolages...

Je remercie cette magnifique famille de nous avoir ouvert leur maison et leur cœur. Nous avons beaucoup partagé, échangé, une vraie amitié est née !

Leurs enfants ont joué avec les miens sans jamais une tension (nous sommes pourtant resté plus de 3 mois et demi!!!), ils ont fait l'école ensemble, se sont soutenus, ont cuisiné, bricolé, créer un circuit pour les vtt !!! Après une année de voyage, le meilleur moment pour mes enfants reste le confinement chez Anouar et Kika !!!

Personnellement je me suis sentie entourée et soutenue durant cette période où j'étais seule avec mes enfants, ils ont tout fait pour que je me sente au mieux.

Ils nous ont fait un prix, comme à tous les voyageurs car nous sommes resté longtemps, ils n'ont pas profité du confinement pour abuser de la situation.

Notre camping-car est resté chez eux en attendant que les frontières réouvrent.

Merci encore en espérant un jour pouvoir revenir vous voir ! Je vous les conseille les yeux fermés !!

Thanks a lot for having us during the covid quarantine en Colombia. We stayed there two months and a half and we loved the place: a very big garden, kitchen and hot showers, sofas to chill and very warm vibes!

You recently reported an issue: “Je suis resté pendant plus de 70 jours en quarantaine a la Bonnanza... rien de trés bon a vrai dire. - Ambience de la mauvaise foi. - Situations d'insécurité constantes. - Couts sur elevés profitant de la pandemie. - Proprietaire bagarreur et provocateur. - Dialogues incoherents ET sauts d'humeur dû a l'alcohol. -3 bergers alemans agressifs. En 70 jours ils ont blessé 4 chiens de voyageurs don't la mienne.. qui a eu droit a 10 ataques au total et repart avec trois cicatrices. Pasa seulement les Chiens .... un enfant de 5 Ana, aussi a été chargé par les chiens a deux reprises. Suite a ça, des familles ont été invités a partir en pleine nuit de quarantaine... seulement pour avoir demandé au gerent de faire plus atention avec ses chiens. Bref, on a du apeler la police de tourisme Colombie me pour nous aider a partir. un abuso en mi pais. bref.. on a du partir de la-bas en pleine quarantaine."

Above all, impeccable services at convenient prices in a beautiful setting!
Wifi; hot water; several clean showers and toilets.
Very easy access to all types of vehicles (5 meters wide gate) with large parking areas and camping facilities.
There are various drinking water points as well as gray/black waters dumping facilities.
A fully equipped kitchen with oven, fridge, sink, worktop, various tables and chairs.
On top of that traditional pizza oven and fully equipped BBQ area at disposal.
17kilo washing machine, no dryer.
Different places to eat and relax inside and in the large green zones; possibility to rent rooms …
All the services you want as Overlanders are there, because Kika Anouar and their children were also travelers a few years ago, so they pretty much know what Overlanders are looking for!!
We had a great welcoming in La Bonanza! An unforgettable chapter in our journey.
We do sincerely thank Kika Anouar and their children, during our journey Over-landing in South America that lasted about 8 months, we heard some much and from many travelers’ about La Bonanza, that at the end, stoping over there became almost compulsory! Lucky enough we arrived just at the beginning of the lockdown in Colombia.
We were far from knowing how extraordinary will be our experience at La Bonanza as we did not experience a confinement but rather the unique experience of a community life.
We had beautiful memories, beautiful moments and beautiful emotions.
We stayed 45 days at the Bonanza, the moment of our departure was heartbreaking for everyone!
To summarize it all, If during your trip you need comfort, a good atmosphere, a little break, or just a loving place, come here. !!!
Kika Anouar and their children have two of the most beautiful human qualities «devotion » and «generosity ».
Words are not enough to express our immense gratitude to Kika Anouar and their children.
Thank you from the heart.

Superbe Famille , d’une gentillesse incroyable.
L’endroit est tout simplement incroyable.
Nous avons été reçu en pleine période de Pandémie en 2020.
Nous y sommes restés quelques jours, puis avons décidé de rentrer par les premiers vols de rapatriement.
Nous y avons laissé le camping-car en toute sécurité, Kika nous a organisé le laisser passer auprès des autorités locales, afin de pouvoir nous rendre à l’aéroport de Popayan, et nous a également trouver un taxi acceptant d’emmener des « étrangers » ce qui n’était pas évident en cette période jusque l’aéroport de Popayan.
Cette Pandémie a mis fin à notre voyage mais c’est avec une belle fin et une belle famille.
Encore merci a cette superbe Famille!!!

Les Almeiriques

We got to quarantine the covid and they told us that the money didn't matter to us how important we all are. We were paying more than normal and kicked out by the Moroccan alcohol dictator Anuar and his cynical secretary Kika. We spent two months enduring the abuse of power of this horrible couple. Good luck with your life, everything comes back!

NO LO RECOMIENDO EN ABSOLUTO.
Nos tocó hacer la cuarentena en este lugar (65 días - del 15/3 al 20/5/2020) y lo que al principio fue bueno, terminó siendo una verdadera tortura y dejamos el lugar con mucho miedo de los dueños llamados anuar y kika.
Un hombre alcoholico que cuando bebía se ponía violento y hacía uso y abuso de su autoridad dentro de su propiedad, sin respetar nunca nuestro espacio ni nuestra vida ahí, ya que NO podíamos salir por fuerza mayor. Las últimas tres noches que estuvimos ahí, este hombre, totalmente borracho, bajo a pelear con todo el que se le cruce. También cortaba internet, el agua o la electricidad cuando tenía ganas ( pequeño poder del ser humano ). Llego a pelear y faltarle el respeto a niños de 5 años. En fin, un pobre hombre.
La mujer, una mentirosa profesional que lo único que hacía era mentir para tratar de arreglar las maldades que el marido hacía y todos los días nos hablaba mal de alguno de los Integrantes del camping. (Nunca entendimos con qué fin)
Nos tuvieron más de dos meses manipulándonos con el miedo, ocupándose ellos de las compras sin dejarnos salir a una tienda enfrente.
También hay 3 ovejeros alemanes en el lugar que son asesinos (por eso ahora sacaron el pet friendly) y siempre que había un episodio, nunca se hacían cargo.
Mordieron al hermano del empleado que trabaja ahí (don Guillermo) a todos los perros viajeros que estaban ahí, a un niño de 5 años y la respuesta del señor anuar era “si no te gusta ándate” (algo imposible dada la situación mundial).
También le prohibieron al empleado del lugar (don Guillermo) hablar con los viajeros solo porque anuar y kika no querían, en que clase de dictadura pasa eso?
Por suerte, gracias a la policía de turismo que nos ayudó, junto con otros viajeros pudimos salir de esta pesadilla, cambiar de camping y volver a estar tranquilos.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND AT ALL.
We had to quarantine in this place (65 days - from 3/15 to 5/20/2020) and what at first was good, ended up being a real torture and we left the place with great fear of the owners called anuar and kika .
An alcoholic man who, when he drank, became violent and used and abused his authority within his property, never respecting our space or our life there, since we could NOT leave due to force majeure. The last three nights we were there, this man, totally drunk, went down to fight with everyone he came across. He also cut internet, water or electricity when he felt like it (small human power). He got to fight and disrespect 5-year-old children. Anyway, a poor man.
The woman, a professional liar who all she did was lie to try to fix the evils that the husband did and every day he spoke ill of one of the members of the camping. (We never understood for what purpose)
They had us more than two months manipulating us with fear, taking care of shopping without letting us go to a store opposite.
There are also 3 German Shepherds on site who are killers (that's why they now put out the pet friendly) and whenever there was an episode, they never took over.
They bit the brother of the employee who works there (Don Guillermo) to all the traveling dogs that were there, to a 5-year-old boy, and Mr. Anuar's response was "if you don't like it, go away" (something impossible given the world situation).
They also prohibited the local employee (Don Guillermo) from talking to the travelers just because Anuar and Kika did not want, in what kind of dictatorship does that happen?
Luckily, thanks to the tourist police that helped us, along with other travelers we were able to get out of this nightmare, change camping and be calm again.

nice place, perfect temperatures, warm hearted owner family, silent at night, but only a big washing maschine with cold water

This is one of the best campings we have been so far in South America. Here you have everything you need, all is super clean and well maintained as everybody else already written in the comments. We really recommend to stop by. We could only spend one night but this would be a place to rest some days!

La Bonanza...
Si vous chercher la bonne humeur, l'esprit Zen et chaleureux, la tranquillité et la sécurité, c'est le lieu de passage obligatoire. Anouar, Kika et leurs enfants sont des personnes attachantes et chaleureuses. vous serez reçu en amis et non pas en client.
Seul point négatif : c'est très difficile de répartir tellement on s'y sent bien.

une famille formidable ♥️💙♥️💙🧡 tout est parfait. grand terrain, douche chaude WC propre. très bonne ambiance. visite du marché de Silvia avec Kika 👍. on recommande ++++++.

Can’t add more than has already been said here - simply a sensational place. Warmest welcome EVER ! We hesitated to go because it was 12kms off the highway but the road is paved and is an easy, scenic drive. Do NOT miss La Bonanza.......a convenient stop going to or coming from Ecuador. Kika and Anouar are amazing - try to be there on Tuesday for the Silvia market, simply not to be missed !

Superb. Such a warm hearted family. Very well run and with great facilities. Kika and Anouar have created a very special place

We spent 5 days at camping la bonanza, a real haven of peace! the campsite is very well laid out, there is everything you may need! A big thank you to kika, anouar and their children for their welcome and their availability! we really appreciated these moments of sharing

Fantastic campsite! After we first stayed here in November, we returned to celebrate New year and the carnival in Silvia. It's just incredible how generous we are welcomed. Kika and her family share live, love and laugh with every traveller. And on top all facilities are great and improved all the time! Very much recommended!

Very nice place as described. La Bonanza is a 13 km drlve from the Panamericana on a perfect 2-lane and tarred road, you gain nearly 600 m in elevation. They continue improving the facilities, so this already very nice place will be even better in the future. And what must be mentioned, bread and croissants are excellent as well as all the tips we got.

Great hospitality, nice place, clean, well taking care. There is space for several rigs and easy to access. As ex overlanders, they know perfectly well our needs. I recommend this campground!!

Everything has been quite said on this jewel from the road. An overlander campground with all the possible comfort and attention nestled in fantastic sceneries. Kika, Anouar and their kids' kindness is from another world. The only mistake you may do while going there, would be not staying long enough.

The hospitality gets to the point where it overwhelmed me - we sometimes felt we were intruding into the life of this family of five (with studying teenagers). But the whole family kept inviting us - extraordinarily hospitable.

Kika and Anouar's mission is to make La Bonanza a great stop for overlanders. They know what 'we' like. These ex-overlanders share their experience, their wealth, their ... lives with visitors.

They are a good source for all kinds of travel advice: from popular Colombian destinations and reliable mechanics to vehicle shipping agents, all of whom Kika stays in touch with (we took quite a bit of their advice).

The infrastructure is being extended all the time and it's very accommodating already. Like mentioned by others, there's a kitchen, plenty of shelter with comfy seats, 110 and 220V electricity close to the vehicle campsites. The sites are covered with gravel (best in dry and wet conditions).

We stayed four nights and left only because we needed to make progress towards Cartagena. It was hard to leave.

It's so good we came back, Anour & Kika are just the best hosts. A must stop for all overlanders. They have all facilities you need & more. Thanku Anour, Kika & kids.

This place is a must stop in Colombia. The owners don’t just make you feel at home, they share their home with you. One of our favourite parts was the daily tea time in the evening with typical Moroccan tea and sometimes other snacks. We got to meet other travellers and share stories and advice. Great experience for us! Highly recommend!

This is a wonderful place to stay!! All facilities are there. Wifi is good. The Moroccan couple Kika and Anouar are the best hosts!!! Enjoyed 5:30 Moroccan tea with them everyday. They and their 3 children travelled all through South America before settling here so they are a wealth of knowledge! Laundry facility is great and cheap! Love this place! Make sure to visit Silvia from here on Tuesday for market day

Bonanza campground photos’library updated the 30th is October 2019

I waited on purpose until the end of our travel through Latin America to write this review.
I can say now with absolute certainty, after more than a year traveling we have never met such special people than at La Bonanza! Apart from having a perfectly equipped place for overlanders your family is truly inspiring and warm!
I hope you keep on having energy to keep spreading so much love and compassion to others, you surely helped Jess and me (Frieder) to approach life in a different way! I can only say shukran for your honest hospitality! I hope only great and good things will meet you in life :)

What else can we say. This is the dream location for all overlanders. Every aspect, the hardware, location and the kindness of the whole family is overwhelming.

La Bonanza is not just another IOverlander point on the map.

This is a place out of time, where you become member of a family. After 6 weeks in Colombia we believe this place reflects the most the feeling we’ve had about this country: kindness & generosity.

Kika, Anouar and their 3 children really have are the best. They actually welcome you in their nest and leave with the overlanders. They know your experience, know the continent and are of good advice. They are always willing to help.
This is such a great experience, wether for 1 night or for a week or more.
We’ve had cooking time for our children with the girls, bread lessons with Anouar, drone tips & tricks with Mehdi and of course, the famous visit of Silvias market with Kika, alongside tons of advise and recommandations, that you can follow or not.

It doesn’t matter wether you go up or down the road, you have to make a stop there.

Simply the place to feel at home while traveling! Muchas gracias por todo!

A must stop for all overlanders, the owners, a Moroccan family are super friendly & helpful with anything you need.

La bonanza is our favorite spot in Colombia. Kika, Anouar and the children welcome you and make you feel part of the family. Everything is designed to make you feel at home and it is very hard to leave. HIGHLY recommended !

This Family is so lovely and it’s hard to find a better place to stay in Columbia. Very Recommended. To the good people only!

This is a wonderful place to stay and rest! We thought we would spend 2-3 nights there... stayed for a week. The family is so lovely! We had tajine, couscous, tea, cakes, wine..!
We came with our dog and had no problem with their animals, they played a lot together.

One of our favorite place in Colombia! If you read this, don’t hesitate, just go.

This family is awesome. We are really happy we came here and spend time with them. Thanks Annuar, Kika, Medhi...

Incredible place, Kika, Anouar and 3 children were like sunshine for us ! Our 2 children played with the very kind dogs (especially the famous Bidoucha!). Very interesting market in Silvia on tuesdays, Kika is the guide ! We also loved to share with others overlanders. It is really worth a detour if it was not initially on your road.

I took some time to write this comment, especially because I believe that all the positive adjectives have already been used. We lived a time out of time at Malika , anouar, meissa , mehdi and maya and I am sure that no other campground will match what we experienced here. We didn't know each other and 10 days after it was very difficult to leave us. Camping: many locations, water available, electricity in 110 or 220, septic tank, Possibility to buy eggs, common kitchen, terrace to enjoy friendly moments, laundry, dogs and even the cat are supers attaching, what else do you want? Nothing

J'ai pris du temps avant d'écrire ce commentaire, notamment parce que je crois que tous les adjectifs positifs ont déjà été employés.
Nous avons vécu un moment hors du temps chez Malika , anouar, meissa , mehdi et maya et je suis certaine qu'aucun autre campground n'égalera ce que nous avons vécu ici. On ne se connaissait pas et 10 jours après il était très difficile de nous quitter.
Au niveau du camping : nombreux emplacements, eau disponible, électricité en 110 ou 220, fosse septique, possibilité d'acheter des oeufs, cuisine commune, terrasse pour profiter de moments conviviaux, laverie, les chiens et même le chat sont supers attachant que fallait il de plus pour nous ? Rien

As perfect as described by the others. A must stop place along the way. You won’t regret it...

Totalmente recomendable! Hermoso lugar con muchas comodidades y muy bien atendido a un precio más que razonable

There are good amenities and it is a pretty location. The problem we had is that there are 4 young and untrained dogs and a cat which bit my wife as she was walking past.

I would avoid with young kids due to the animals. Otherwise, a nice place.

Very nice place with cool people! We also met others overlanders. We only have regrets for not staying more than one night. Don’t plan anything after Bonanza to let you the opportunity to stay as long as you want !

Le meilleur camping au monde et la plus belle famille au monde. C'est extraordinaire. On a de suite l'impression d'être chez des amis, ils font tout pour que tu sois bien et il y a plein de choses à faire autour de la maison. C'est le bonheur ici !!! . La seule chose négative est que tu pleures en partant car tu ne veux jamais partir tellement tu es bien. C'est le paradis.

You find here what makes travelling so special: people who make you welcome as friends and treat you like family, excellent amenities , lots of information, interesting outings, heart warming evenings with tea/wine/delicious snacks... you will leave having made friends for life.
If nobody answers your phone please send a whatsapp with the same number.

We liked a lot this Finca, and this family! All the facilities. There are nice walking trails, here and the sorroundings; a very quiet place. On Tuesday you can go to the weekly market in Silvia. We spent several days here. Very very recommended!

I just wanted to stay for 2-3 nights. At the end I stayed for 19 days. The family, Jojo and Ben are great people! The market in Silvia is awesome! It was a pleasure to meet those people and this place! One day I will come back!

Nos quedamos más de una semana porque el lugar es muy hermoso, y Kika, Anouar y los 3 chicos son increíbles! Todas las comodidades pero lo más importante es que te sientes parte de la familia 😍 Hay unos hermosos senderos para recorrer, y Kika te lleva los martes al mercado semanal de Silvia, el pueblo que está a 12 km, resguardos indígenas, etc. y te lo explica todo. Además de las comodidades para RV, hay habitaciones muy bonitas para alquilar. Muy pero muy recomendable! Entendimos por qué la gente se queda más tiempo del planeado 😃

What a nice place and what a nice family! They speak an English, Spanish and french perfect. There is a lot of thing to do in the valley ! You can program a week or more!
They are making a brand new area for overlander staying, it will be finish on June 2019.
You can buy homemade marmelades!! so good !! And ask for bread the day before !
Worth to do it!!!
What else ? Enjoy!!!

Un spot super pour les road tripper, nous y sommes passés avec notre petit Michel (Transporter t25 vw), un accueil extra de la part de Kika Anouar et les enfants,
On a tout ce qu'il faut sur place de l'électricité, de l'eau, un douche chaude, une cuisine, du sourire en pagaille, un lieu extraordinaire pour les ballades au milieu des montagnes, le petit village de Silvia est absolument magnifique surtout pendant la semana santa.
Les petits repas en famille était le bien venu pour tisser des liens inoubliables,
nous reviendrons avec Michel,
Merci a vous, a bientôt.

We arrived here and plannen to stay only till Tuesday - market day in Silvia. But as soon as we entered we were received like long-lost friends. Kika, Anouar and their children are the best hosts ever! So when we had to make a choice to leave soon or stay put when a long road blockade was looming, we stayed, and never regretted our choice. the whole family speaks English, French, Spanish and Arabic (they are Moroccan, hence that hospitality!) and love to help you with anything needed. Best stay ever!

Wonderful place. Beautiful premises. 25K per night for all facilities, including DUMP station. Easy to get bus across the road to Silvia. Pablo and Guillermo were very helpful and always available on site. We stayed three nights. Quiet, relaxing, nice neighbours. We heard some needed improvements for the bathroom facilities are coming. More than one toilet is definitely needed and the shower mats could be improved. Otherwise, almost 10/10!

Super friendly family which welcome the travellers and do as much as possible to satisfy them. You can have vegetables from their garden and fresh eggs. Kitchen well equipped. Hot shower. Large table to eat all together. Electricity 110 & 220v - many plugs.
They speak french, english, spanish and arab. If you arrive on a tuesday, Kika will show you the market and explain all fruits and vegetables of the country. They know very well Colombia and have lots of stories to share. Highly recommended !!

nice place reasonable price enjoyed visiting with cheese makers across the road

The most wonderful place and wonderful family! We had such a lovely time here and were sad to leave. Kika, Anouar, and their fabulous kids are making a really great place. They welcomed us with open arms and we were very comfortable there. The parking is in front of the house right off the road but it’s surprisingly quiet at night and the rest of the facilities are really good. The gate is tall — we had lots of room in our 3m high van, could definitely fit larger vehicles. Amazing hot shower, clean bathroom, and comfy chairs with good WiFi. They are actively improving the finca for visitors and adding a new path to the bathroom and other amenities. There are some hikes you can do right from the house (with or without a guide, depending on the route). You can feel the love they have for the area. They also have rooms available. Highly recommended!

Very enjoyable. We stayed two nights (Tuesday & Wednesday); very quiet both nights with cool, comfortable temperatures. Hosts Anouar and Kika were most welcoming and attentive, made us feel right at home. Great shower (hot!), reliable wifi. Private rooms and laundry service available. Highly recommended!

Superbe endroit, nous avons été reçu comme à la maison par Kika et Anouar. Ils nous ont aidé à découvrir la région voir même toute la Colombie, ils sont de très bons conseils! Accueil très chaleureux et petit prix vu tout ce qu'ils proposent.

What a nice place to stay, this family is wonderful and so is the place! Be careful, you might be tempted to stay way longer than you planned!

Beautifull farm, lots of parking, an amazing house with all the services. The best shower I had in colombia so far! I didn't get to meet the family but talked with them over the phone and they seem the the sweetest people. A wonderful place to stay on the way from or to Silvia. Highly recomended.

One of the most incredible family in Colombia, full of kindness, Anouar and Kika warmly invited us in their house, an impressive spot with great view and beautiful garden. They provide us everything we need and lot of more, we met their three children who are incredible...
In La Bonanza, there is some place for camping car and a place for host with everything.
Thanks a Lot to Atmani family !

This place is really nice!! via whatsapp we contacted and got a direct message back. Kika, Anouar and the kids are the most welcome and warm family we've encountered during our travels and will go out of there way to make you feel welcome and at home.
when we where there the neighbor was having a party so the music was a bit loud, (other iovers were very angry because of this, but this can always happen incidentally). The area is super nice, pleasantly warm during the day, and fresh in the evening.
If your near the area do visit here!!
We want to say thanks for an amazing stay with an amazing family!

What a great place to stay! The hacienda is beautiful and we parked safely and quiet in the gravel lot. We could use clean toilets, very hot shower and the kitchen inside the house. The housekeeper was very friendly and showed us around, in the morning we talked to the owner, who lives in Silvia. He welcomes all travelers and created the perfect place to stay and gives you lots of information about the surrounding. See contact details below. If we had more time, we definitely would have spend a couple of days here.

La Bonanza is a very nice hacienda owned by a Morrocan family. There is good wifi, electricity, hot showers and amazing views! It is a nice place to relax and see the real Colombia. The family is super friendly, have traveled a lot and would love to share the best places of Colombia and South America (non touristy). I cannot recommend this place enough!
