We’d love Finca Mariposa to be part of your immersion in the beauty of the Andes mountains and the people of Jardin, Antioquia.
Here you’ll find one of the most beautiful and traditional pueblos in all of Colombia in one of its most unforgettable regions!
Hola! We’re Maria José and Dave.
Our home is in Toronto, Canada, but our hearts are in Jardin, Colombia.
We’re delighted to share our special home with you!
We unexpectedly discovered Jardin in 2017 on a trip to explore “the most beautiful Pueblo in Colombia.” We were so enchanted we searched out and found an extraordinary piece of land and built our finca – Finca Mariposa.
We are so excited to share our coffee farm and the incomparable town of Jardin and know that you will fall in love with what our guests always describe as “paradise”.
We sincerely hope you love the people you’ll meet as much as we do as you immerse in the tranquility of the mountains, the traditional coffee culture, and the vibrant energy of Jardin.
In Colombia they say, a butterfly is just a flower that learned how to fly!

What our past guests of Finca Mariposa are saying
This finca is really amazing!
“This finca is really amazing. The hosts are incredibly helpful and attentive and they have ensured the finca has been built and maintained to a very high standard. Its set in huge grounds with an amazing panoramic view of the mountains around Jardin. Would certainly stay again no question.”

Plan on not wanting to leave.
Plan on not wanting to leave. Plan on spending quiet mornings and evenings enjoying the view, the birds, and the generous patio. We wandered the property and picked fruit ; enjoyed the town square; rode a tuk-tuk and a cable car; ate a meal with Marta & Gustavo’s lovely family and wondered how soon we could make plans to return. On the last morning, we hiked the steep trail down to the waterfall, be sure to make time for it. It’s a magical place, with warm people.

Finca Mariposa has greatly exceeded our expectations
Our stay in Finca Mariposa has greatly exceeded our expectations. We knew that it would be an amazing place but what made our stay memorable have been its people and their warm hospitality. In this trip you not only find silence, a beautiful house and stunning views, you also get know how coffee is made (the coffee tour is a MUST). In short, we wish we stayed there a LOT longer. You won’t regret it!

I’d return to in a heartbeat
Jardin stunning, ’nuff said. This farm house is beautiful and set high in the hills on a working coffee farm. Our local co-host family made us feel like family. Daytime and evening activities were fabulous as was the in between time to relax and enjoy the scenery. This is a unique property, comfortable, very clean and one that I’d return to in a heartbeat on my next visit to Colombia.

Mariposa was an amazing stay. The view was amazing and the touch added by Marta and Gustavo was amazing. Having access to homemade Colombian food was excellent and the hospitality demonstrated by both Marta and Gustavo, we couldn’t asked for better.
The landscape is stunning
A great spot to get away. The landscape is stunning, the finca is beautiful, and the coffee is top-notch. Dave and María José are super responsive. As are Marta and Gustavo (our contact while we were there) – they couldn’t be more hospitable and knowledgeable about the area. Will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful, relaxed time at finca mariposa. Gustavo and Martha are great hosts, they made the stay perfect. Would definitely come again!
We loved staying at finca La Mariposa. It was the perfect get together place for my family and I to enjoy Christmas holidays. The view is outstanding and there are many activities available around the finca and the lovely little town of Jardin.
