A floating Glamping site awaits you, complete with double occupancy bed and everything else you will need to make your stay relevant to the name.

Whatever you choose you will definitely work up an appetite, and no better to enjoy a Colombian Countryside, Gourmet dinner, (with a generous serving of alcoholic beverages included) then staring at the breathtaking sunset as it reflex off the crystal calm lake.
The sun goes down, and as the stars come out to play, your biggest decision is to float your Glamping deck close to the campfire*, or out in the middle of the bay to catch an unobstructed view of the shooting star* spectacular.
Awaking as if you are in a fairy tale, as the resident birds of our reserve gently rise you out of your slumber, and unzipping the tent confirms the dream, that this is not a dream, life is really this spectacular.
If an early riser, join the team for a hike up the mountain* for a 360 degree view of paradise, but if not, stay in bed, and our friendly team will deliver your breakfast to you with our room-er TENT SERVICE!
