Hotel Akawanka Lodge, San Agustin

A rocking chair on a wooden deck, overlooking beautiful natural gardens. A simply furnished yet supremely comfortable bedroom. A restaurant serving home cooked dishes prepared using produce from the lodge’s own gardens and orchard. Akawanka Lodge is not what you would call swanky, but it is a wonderful place to stay.

Especially if, on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Colombia, you want to be able to explore the countryside, absorb the local lifestyle and take a step back into the ancient history of this fascinating country. At Akawanka you’re a 10 minute drive from a principal archaeological park, with no less than eight prime archaeological sites within a few kilometres. You’re also surrounded by stunning nature trails, forests and mountains – just made for exploring by mountain bike.
