Casa Oropéndola is a private property located in the heart of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, a lush mountain range that rises from the Caribbean ocean up to 5,776 masl. The house sits at 1,500 masl, between dense rainforest and coffee fields, with a perfect view of the ocean. This ecosystem is particularly unique because of the cloud forest formations that shelter an incredible biodiversity of flora and fauna.
Only here, one can experience a flood of clouds rise from the mountains, enter the house, and then slowly fade up into the sky for a breathtaking sunset – every afternoon.
A percentage of the profits from Casa Oropéndola and the experiences offered are dedicated to supporting local indigenous communities’ and projects to revitalise traditional education, in addition to Western education. It is critical that the new generations continue upholding the importance of protecting the environment and preserving their ancient culture, traditions and beliefs.
