Eco Hotel La Juanita
Eco Hotel La Juanita is a traditional coffee plantation house converted into a cozy and bright lodging option for travelers to Manizales. The tile-floored guest rooms open out onto a Spanish-style balcony with hammocks and views of the verdant hills characteristic of this region of Colombia.
Accommodations are rustic and quaint with wood furniture, and white walls and bedspreads. All have private bathrooms, cable television, and between one and four beds, depending on the size of the party.
A comfortable lounge area provides guests space to read after a long day hiking or exploring the countryside around the property. Staff can give advice on what sites to visit and will help with car rental and transportation.

A nearby butterfly sanctuary is 10 minutes from the property and also offers guided tours of the Manizales area with its abundant wildlife. Other activities in the area include horseback riding and visiting coffee plantations.
Food & Beverage
A full breakfast of coffee, hot chocolate, pastries, fruits, and eggs is included in the price of the room and served in the lounge area. There is a communal kitchen for guests who prefer to cook their own food, which can be bought nearby in Manizales.

How To Get There
