Ecotourism at La Pedregoza

Ecotourism, Agrotourism and Adventure Tourism all-in-one

Ecolodge at La Pedregoza La Pedregoza is a 2,013 hectare (5,000 acre) tree plantation in Vichada, Colombia. We also operate a 1,000 hectare (2,470 acre) natural reserve, registered with Colombia´s national parks system. At present we have 691 species of flora and fauna registered inside La Pedregoza, with many others still to be cataloged, so we're a biodiversity and bird watching paradise. We thought it would be a good idea to invite ecotourism devotees to visit the plantation and the natural reserve for an unforgettable, off the beaten path, nature, agrotourism and adventure tourism experience.
