We were recommended to stay at La Serrana in Salento by not one, not two, but three friends beforehand!
It appears that La Serrana is closed. If you’re looking for other places to stay in Salento, check out this filter on Hostel world.
Getting to La Serrana from Medellin
We arrived at 8 pm from our day of 12 hours of buses, and we walked in the direction of La Serrana, which is a bit outside of Salento’s town center itself. If it’s dark, you’re going the right way.
If you get there in daylight, well, that’s a treat!
We likely could have taken a taxi, but Salento is tiny with about 4000 people and things like jeep services shut down after dark. When you see a fork in the road, if you’re walking away from the town center, go to the left and keep walking until you see a driveway for La Serrana.
The Scenery at La Serrana
La Serrana charmed us from the beginning, even though the surroundings were all dark as night. Our first night we were invited to a campfire in the back of the property, where we got to meet some friends and make hiking plans for the next morning.
We awoke to a scene from a painting - rolling hills as far as the eye could see, steaming with morning mist.
Helpful tips for staying at La Serrana
Only the main building has WiFi, so if you stay in a private room (located near the kitchen/eating area) or a tent, you’ll be off the grid.
Those who stay at La Serrana rave about the food - the breakfast included with your reservation in the morning alone is a reason to go back!
