Caobas natural Pool

The most beautiful part of the Manzanares river is in this region. The water is fresh and very welcoming especially during hot or humid weather. The best area to swim is "El pozo del Indio" where you can find an original Tayrona petroglyph. While walking up this river, you can find a couple of waterfalls.


Animal encounter in Caoba

In Caoba, we have encounters with peccaries, arapaimas (pirarucu), macaws, turtles, tortoises and caimans. Some of these animals are a part of social and natural projects.

 

Museum in Caoba

The Museum holds a collection of minerals, fossils, indigenous artefacts and seeds. It is a small but very broad and interesting collection. In the Museum, we have a sitting area in case you wish to have a glass or two of wine in good company. 

Tayrona and Kogui History in Caoba

Caoba is located in a region that used to be a big Tayrona town. So far, we have discovered and restored 400 mts of Tayrona paths (stoned paths). Koguis are the descendants of the Tyronas. Due to our location and close friendship with them, we have worked with them on different projects located in the Reserve; building a Kogui bridge and Cansamaria.
