"Best place in Colombia" Lonely Planet
Barlovento Cabaña has been mentioned in Lonely Planet as perhaps the best place in Colombia in which to hang your hat.
The Cabaña was built almost 40 years. Artist Gloria Mejía commissioned renowned architect, Simón Velez, to design the Cabaña house as a family retreat.
Maloka is the word for house for many indigenous tribes of Colombia and some parts of South America. Basically it consists of a large thatched roof with an ample dwelling space under it. The palm leaves, which make up the roof, provide a welcome coolness in the tropical climate.
