I’ve traveled around the globe discovering amazing cultures and landscapes. I want to show people from around the world one of Colombia’s nicest views from a unique perspective: the Andes from the back of a Colombian horse. I’ve lived in this region all my life, and I know its gastronomy, culture, and tales well. Join me for this experience, where you’ll get a true once-in-a-lifetime journey in the land of the legend of El Dorado.

This trip was absolutely magical! The location was everything. Santiago was able to pick us up from our location. Communication was smooth. The drive was very informative. He knows his country. When we got to the ranch I was breathtaking. The horse are as lovely as the ranch. The food is absolutely delicious and perfect. I loved everything about it. It is cold! Bring a sweater lol although he provided things to keep me warm but still go with something warm and ask for the AREPA’s! 😁😄

I don’t even know where to start. To say this tour was great is an understatement because it was much much better than great. From the beginning to the end Santiago put his whole energy and time into this experience and made us feel like at home. It was a full day of different experiences living in the Colombia ranch life, from eating authentic homemade food to learning about the animals on the farm & much more. This was the best way to start my trip in Colombia & without a doubt I’ll do it again when I come back.

A friend recommended this experience to me after he had a fab time last year, and I reluctantly went after a month of persuasion. Had I known that I would meet Sofia, the most beautiful 3.5 year old 600kg Belgian horse, I would have booked earlier without hesitation! Meeting Sofia was the highlight of the experience, but I would be remiss to not highlight the delicious Colombian food we were fed, the breathtaking views, all the adorable perros, the warm hospitality, and most importantly- the opportunity to answer all of the trivia correctly. Oh ya, Santiago was pretty cool too!

To say that this experience was amazing would be an understatement. It was simply the most relaxing and best day spent outside the city of Bogota. Few highlights - spectacular scenery on the way to and from the ranch, Daniel made us feel extremely welcomed at his home from the start until the end of the day, an amazing staff (who serves the best Arepas), the myriad of beautiful animals and the picturesque grounds surrounding the ranch. If I am fortunate enough to return to Colombia, this is one experience I would repeat. It was completely worth the time and money spent.

The experience with Santiago and his family was amazing. You are intimate with nature and the animals on the ranch. Enjoy great food, a fun game, and a beautiful home. This was worth every penny. Wonderful for all ages.

Santiago and his family provide a one-of-a-kind experience amidst a scenic setting of Colombia, unexpectedly only few hours away from the hustle-bustle of Bogotá. The experience provides a one-day exposure to the nature, culture, music, food, coffee, games, family and warmth of Colombia in addition to the well-done and personalised horse-riding adventure. I will definitely carry a piece of this warmth that Santiago's family has offered me, wherever I go and travel next. My warmest regards.
