Monteroca, Salento & Coffee region , Colombia

Monteroca camping and exotic lodging is a unique place on the edge of the river in the village of Boquia, a ten minute bus ride from Salento. Owner Jorge has created a quirky balance between the great outdoors and modern comfort by offering travellers the chance to stay in a variety of different accomodation types, ranging from a vintage caravan to a tree house or a safari tent!

Monteroca has an onsite museum showing a variety of interesting items which the owner has collected over the years, a snake enclosure and plenty of entertainment options including board games, a TV area and plenty of information about what there is to do in the surrounding area.

For those who want to experience something new and different, this definately wont disapoint even the most alternative of characters!
There are currently eight options in the ´exotic lodging´ section and around 40 spaces to pitch a tent. Prices are set at 60,000 Pesos per person for the ´exotic lodges´and 15,000 Pesos per person to camp.

Camping allows access to a comunal kitchen/dining area, a TV lounge, hot and cold water showers and toilet blocks. There is also wood for sale for bonfires and Monteroca offers a service with the local restaurants to deliver meals to their guests.

The lodges are themed to represent their names and are decorated with things which Jorge has collected over the years. Each lodge is different, some are permanent, hard wearing tents, others are cabins built out of wood and local materials. All of them have bathroom facilities and a camp fire and many have unique features such as a water bed or decorations from a specific continent or region.

There is a lot of attention to detail and effort made to make your stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. For example there are menus from local restaurants in the lodges and games for guests to share.
How to get there...
From Armenia, take a bus to Salento and ask to be dropped off at Boquia, about 30 minutes in to the journey. Boquia is a small collection of houses and it will be easy to find Monteroca as it´s well signposted and is on the curve as you leave the village toward Salento.
