Tired of the constant threats by guerrilla, drug dealers and paramilitary groups the “cocaleros” of the Sierra Nevada region, have replaced the coca plantings for lodging huts made of wood and palms.

This plan, supported by the government, attracts hundreds of local, european and american tourists seeking different experiences of interaction with nature and natives.
