HISTORY OF CAOBA
These 30 hectares of land were bought in 1999 by a German / Colombian couple. In the beginning, the land was completely deforested and only the big trees existed along the river, but after 15 years of reforestation and research, we have created a sanctuary for the plants. There are around 300 different types of trees, some endangered, some from abroad, and other fruit trees to attract animals, including a collection of palm trees, medicinal plants, aquatic plants, cacti, succulents, bromeliads, and orchids. Caoba is divided into 2 parts by the river, the tourist area open to the public (5 hectares) and the wild area (25 hectares).
We no longer practice reforestation, but instead work towards conservation and preservation, helping others during the reforestation process by donating seeds or offering advice. Here at Caoba we have also started monitoring wildlife by placing motion sensitive cameras, capturing videos of ant eaters, jaguars, pumas and other wildlife on our property.
