Private Palomino perch
A couple of miles out of Palomino in northern Colombia, boutique hotel One Santuario Natural is a romantic riverside retreat where Kogi shamans occasionally stay for supper. This labour of love is a hotel with a whole lot of heart: the owner takes his role as a custodian of the land seriously, protecting the indigenous Kogi community and its traditions as he welcomes travellers to this increasingly accessible part of the country. Each of the thatched circular palapa huts has a hot tub, hammocks and local handicrafts like embroidered pillows. The Palomino River winds all the way down to the Caribbean Sea, with the snow-capped Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta range in the background. If you don’t know what tubing is, you’re about to find out (luckily, here it involves ice-cold beers).
