Finca el Monte , Coro, Venezuela

Moving away from Switzerland many years ago, in 1994 Ursula and Ernesto Iseli-Suter moved to this spectacular region and opened up the family run Finca El Monte. The Finca is built on the south-side of a hill in the friendly community, overlooking the majestic mountain-ranges of the Juan C. Falcon National Park.

Finca El Monte is the perfect place to relax and catch up with your reading in this stress free, peacefully quiet environment. The sound of crickets at night is a nice ccontrast to the noisy Venezuelan cities.
Finca El Monte offers three spotless rooms with private bathroom offering hot water showers. The price of a double or twin room is 120 bolivars while a triple costs 150 bolivars and a single, 70 bolivars per room.

The finca offers a satisfying menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner with plenty of vegetarian options. Many lot of the ingredients coming straight out of their organic garden and for those Vegans out there wanting to have a healthy meal, search no further - Ursula can prepare you a wonderful meal to accommodate your diet.

Ursula and Ernesto will happily organize guided hikes in the Sierra San Luis to the multitude of waterfalls, caves and surrounding hillsides. Another option is that you can use their extensive knowledge of the area and take one of their maps and go out for an adventure on your own to explore this beautiful area.

Finca El Monte also offers additional services such as flashlight rental, a laundry service and taxi transfer service to/from Coro and the airport.

At your disposal you'll also have the use of their book exchange, board games and comfy hammocks for relaxing in the countryside.
