Carpe Diem is an ecological farm & guesthouse with a large swimming pool, located alongside a crystalline river and makes a perfect starting point for interesting activities.

Unforgettable highlights
: waterfalls & natural swimming holes at the river near the house; swimming pool in the garden surrounded by terraces, ideal for sunbathing; presence of nature reserves, coffee & cacao farms; pre-Columbian village; day & multi-day hikes; horseback riding; dozens of tropical fruits; stunning views of the surrounding mountains and coastline; camping, hammocks, moderate & luxury cabanas; healthy and more refined meals & drinks; coffee & honey production; only 50min from Tayrona.

Carpe Diem is different from many other sites on the Caribbean Coast: an off the beaten track paradise, 100% contact with nature. You will not hear the noise of cars, motos or loud music. What you hear is the flow of the river and the sounds of birds & wildlife…what you feel is a sense of being completely at ease. In this setting, Carpe Diem provides top quality service.
