Finca Cuipo is a little piece of heaven in the rural area of Santa Marta, Colombia. Located on a peaceful hilltop overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the mountains of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Finca Cuipo offers you a unique accommodation experience. There is no doubt that the breathtaking views will leave you speechless. Nonetheless, we want to make sure that the real protagonist of it all is the special hospitality service you will get from us.
Finca Cuipo offers three wooden cabins, featuring a balcony with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, and an exclusive outdoor shower under the twinkling stars of the endless sky in Santa Marta.
Enjoy our local and international dishes, including vegan and vegetarian options, at our Bistro-Bar.
Relax in the tranquillity of our infinity pool, or take a timeout in our famous infinity “hamaca” (hammock).
A different kind of experience
We are Helmut and Fiona, a young travel-passionate couple who came up with the idea of Finca Cuipo in January 2018. Our passion for exploring the world made us experience different types of hotels worldwide. And we quickly realized that we would love to offer an alternative experience: Combining the different traditions and cultures we explored around the world together with the high-quality standards we know travelers are looking for.
We instantly fell in love with Colombia when we first came here on holidays and were amazed by Santa Marta and its rural surroundings. Picturing ourselves living here in harmony with nature and tranquility and starting our small family project was not a difficult task. And here we are today. Living in between the Sierra Nevada and the Caribbean Sea, offering travelers from all over the world a unique stay in our small paradise.
Finca Cuipo offers you distraction-free cabins that help you connect with nature. Our wooden cabins are equipped with a very comfortable double bed, a ceiling fan, an outdoor shower and a balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea. It is the perfect fusion of luxury and sustainability.
Coming from different backgrounds and having lived in many places around the world, we speak English, Spanish, German, Frisian, French and Portuguese to give you the best possible experience at our Finca.
All in all, we offer a stunning location with a spectacular view and lots of unique trekking and mountain biking trails near our Finca. We invite the open-minded and the adventurous at heart to experience Colombia in a different way, and to escape the busy city life for a peaceful and authentic mountain getaway.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
What does Finca Cuipo mean?
You might wonder what Finca Cuipo means. Let us explain! In Colombia, finca is the most common word for “farm”, and cuipo is a famous tree native to South America. You may also know it as macondo. Its long and thick trunk gives it a majestic appearance. You will find our huge cuipo right after you enter the Finca, and only then you will understand why we chose it to name our project.
Finca Cuipo is based on sustainable principles to ensure minimum impact on the surrounding environment. We employ people from nearby villages, and we use local products and goods in order to bring economic benefits to the community.
Water in the region is highly valued. We reuse it to irrigate our gardens, which have been planted in terrain where we are actively running a reforestation project. Today, they attract everything from bees to local birds, all of which serve to enrich the Finca’s grounds
Our goal for the future is to run 100% on solar energy.
