We booked Finca Cuipo for the last 2 days of our trip in Colombia in may, and we were left astonished, what an experience. To start with, Helmut and Fiona, are 2 well travelled and experienced hosts which are super accomodating and full of interesting stories of their adventures building the finca.
The property is unbelievable 🙌🏼 an infinity pool overlooking the Carribbean sea 300+ above sea level I could never get out from.
The cabañas are made with luxury touches yet rustic and in pace with the sorrounding, needless to say it's all environmentally friendly.
Helmut is an amazing cook and explained us about all the local flora and fauna, Fiona makes paradisiac juices and breakfast treats, and Tovi their little daughter, we could never have enough.
The cherry on the pie was a wheel barrel 😂 bbq dinner by the pool on the last evening of our stay. We were almost in tears before leaving the Finca.
We will, by all means, come back again very soon.
Excellente todo de verdad 👍🏼😎🙏🏼 Muchísimas gracias Finca Cuipo Helmut Fiona and Tovi.

Helmut and Fiona's finca is located away from all the hustle and bustle on a beautiful mountain. They both are really friendly, communication was quick and easy, they have great tips for things to do (including more local things) and lots of great things to tell about their finca. The finca is surrounded by beautiful nature, we could observe hummingbirds, squirrels, and other wildlife and has a pool with a stunning view. The cabin is super chic, privacy guaranteed and an incomparable view of the ocean from the hammock. Helmut cooks great food (veggi & vegan options available), they have great games and we really enjoyed the quiet evenings up there. The place is perfect if you want to relax and disconnect for a few days. Helmut and Fiona took super great care of us, we can highly recommend the place and would have preferred not to leave at all.

Helmut and Fiona are a wonderful couple who immediately make you feel at home. Their cabins are stunning with incredible views from up the mountain. There is so much attention to detail in them and the beds are super comfy and there is a hammock on the balcony overlooking the scenery.

Helmut is an incredible cook and prepares some of the best best food I have had yet in Colombia so I highly recommend you have some meals here. Both Helmut and Fiona made such an effort to make me feel welcome and help out in any way they could. If every non commercial accommodation experience abroad could be like this the big hotels would be out of business in a heartbeat.

Don’t question whether or not to stay here or not, book it and you will have the best time!

Absolutely everything was perfect during our stay at Finca Cuipo. Especially the sweet owners, Fiona and Helmut, went out of their way to cook delicious food, help us with recommendations for activities and generally just created such a good and welcoming atmosphere. The bungalow was clean and the view from there stunning!
Also, the location of the place is in perfect distance from Tayrona National Park and very easy to reach from there.

10/10 experience that you do absolutely not wanna miss while in Colombia!!!!!

- we will definitely be back<3

I left Finca Cuipo three weeks ago, but it’s a place I continue to visit in my mind. I highly recommend booking this place for anyone that wants to unwind, unplug and take a break. The cabin is literally in the middle of the mountain, overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The cabin’s deck is perfect to relax while enjoying the view, and the fact that the shower is outdoors makes you feel completely connected to nature. At night, hundreds of crickets and the rustling of leaves dancing to the wind lull you to sleep.

Fiona & Helmut’s hospitality is unparalleled. They make sure you have a great time during your stay and they even help you with the logistics of your travel plans in case you want to explore the area and visit the attractions nearby, such as the Tayrona Park or the Buritaca beaches. Helmut is a great cook, and he adjusts meals to your dietary needs. Breakfast is included and dinner is very cheap.

I definitely will be coming back!



Hace tres semanas que dejé Finca Cuipo, pero es un lugar que aún visito continuamente en mi cabeza. Si tu intención es descansar, desconectarte y hacer una pausa, te recomiendo mucho hospedarte aquí. La cabina está en la montaña, en medio de la nada, y la vista da al mar Caribe. La terraza es ideal para relajarte disfrutando de la vista, y la regadera exterior te hace sentir en total contacto con la naturaleza. Por la noche, te arrullan cientos de grillos y el murmullo de las hojas movidas por el viento.

La hospitalidad de Fiona y Helmut es incomparable. Se aseguran de que la pases muy bien durante tu estancia e incluso te ayudan con la logística de tus planes de viaje en caso de que quieras explorar la zona y visitar las atracciones cercanas, como el Parque Tayrona o las playas de Buritaca. Helmut es un gran cocinero y adapta los platillos a tu dieta; el desayuno está incluido y la cena está a muy bien precio.

Definitivamente pienso regresar.

Even before arriving, I was exchanging emails with Fiona back and forth regarding local tours and transportation. She was absolutely thorough, patient and a huge source of information to help guide us through planning. When we met Fiona and Helmut it felt like meeting old friends! Their finca is lush, homey and absolutely stunning. It is a retreat into the mountains with the opportunity to disconnect and be with nature but with all your needs and comfort met. The walk to the cabin will get your heart pumping but once you are settled inside you will notice the cabins are thoughtful and minimalist with everything you could possibly need. The outdoor shower with the privacy of lush greenery, the most comfortable hammock on the private balcony, and a dip in the pool and take in the view were just a few of my many highlights! Fiona and Helmut really care and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and truly a one of a kind experience. Cannot speak more highly of Finca Cuipo and cannot wait for more fresh jugo and pancakes!! Thank you!

Helmut and Fiona’s little oasis in the jungle was stunning and absolutely perfect for our trip! It was by far and away our favorite place we stayed. They have truly embraced the meaning of a B&B and when you stay with them you feel warmly welcomed into their life. They have three beautiful private bungalows to rent, each with tons of storage, a gorgeous patio, and your own bathroom and outdoor shower. We loved every minute of our stay and had the best meals of our trip there! We are big foodies and Helmut and Fiona’s meals were 10/10 for every breakfast and lunch. The hummingbirds at breakfast and the beautiful sunsets before dinner didn’t hurt either. Things to note while you’re there- plan to be back before 6pm because it is up a large hill that you can walk (45 mins) or get a cheap moto taxi (5-10mins), but it’s best not to do that in the dark. You could easily just relax by their pool every day, but we hired a driver who is a family friend of theirs named Miguel who was very reliable and fairly priced. Miguel took us to Minca (1.5 hrs), the Flamingo Santuary (1.5hrs), and offered to take us to go tubing close by or to the stunning Costeño beach (10-20 mins). Overall you can’t go wrong staying with Fiona and Helmut! It is an oasis we think of often

What makes this place so great, as so many have alluded to, is Fiona and Helmut - lovely, hospitable hosts who do everything they can to make you feel welcome. Loved the breakfasts and Helmut’s cooking in the evening was excellent too. The location is just magnificent and the views from the Finca and from the poolside are unforgettable - banana trees, jungle and the beautiful coastline. It is a rustic place but with lots of beautiful touches and a great spot from which to totally unwind and escape - though we also used it as a base to explore nearby Tayrona National Park and Palomino, both short bus rides away from the bottom of the hill. Thank you guys for sharing your slice of paradise with us, we miss it already!

This place is an absolute must if you are looking for tranquility and incredible surroundings between the green and authentic hillsides near the Tayrona National Park.

From Finca Cuipo you can go on day trips or just stay put like we did. The pool offers you the best view and when your hungry you will be served the most delicious and home made meals during the day.

Everything during your stay will happen in close communication with the owners of Finca Cuipo - the two most lovely people. Together with their child, cat and dog they are the salt of the earth🙌🏼☀️

This place will not disappoint.

We stayed at Finca Cuipo for four nights during our three week trip in Colombia and it definitely was one of the best places we have ever stayed! Fiona and Helmut have created an amazing Finca in beautiful surroundings near the coast and jungle and they couldn't have been more hospitable and warm.
The cabins are really comfortable with everything you could possibly need, the breakfasts are superb (few options to choose from) and there is a dinner menu, cooked by Helmut which I have to say all our four meals we had there were the best during our three week trip.
The Finca is highly recommended and thanks again Helmut and Fiona for your amazing hospitality!!
