Casa San Carlos Lodge
Pereira (The coffee region, Colombia)
A luxury lodge with views across well kept gardens and open farmland, in the heart of the coffee region.

Excursions to visit nearby coffee plantations, small colourful towns and the Cocora Valley and Los Nevados National Park can be organised locally.
The 22 rooms are all spacious, individually decorated and named with their own unique theme, and have a ceiling fan. There are 14 superior rooms, 6 junior suites with a private terrace and a view over open farmland and 2 suites with air-conditioning, a terrace and private hot-tub.
