A time travel to romance and sugar cane crops.
Visit with me the splendid Haciendas in the flats of our region where you'll experience the spirit of the 1900's, its literature and the real lives of the people who occupied this idyllic region.
We'll visit the place where the story of Maria was written by Jorge Isaacs as he lived his relationship with her and where original furniture is still kept. Learn about their story and the time they lived in.
If you desire you can try a delicious "Sancocho de Gallina" or chicken stew for lunch which is a typical dish of the region of Valle del Cauca in the small town of Ginebra, a town well-known for their tasty cooking of this particular dish, then let's head to the sugar cane Hacienda where you can have a closer look at the main product of our region and see how they process it to make certain products derived from it.
Do not hesitate to take your time to walk in the surroundings and appreciate the beauty of the landscapes that frame these places.
We will leave at 9 am from the Hotel, it will take us about an hour and 15 minutes to get to the first Hacienda.
We'll take a tour around it and learn about the history of the place and the characters who used to live in it.
If you wish you can get some souvenirs at the shops located therein.
Then we will head down to have some lunch in the town of Ginebra.
After we finish having lunch we will start our following trip to the sugarcane Hacienda where we can learn about it and see how they have processed this important and main regional plant through the different times in history in our gorgeous Cauca Valley.
Finally, we will return back to the hotel.
