The territories are organized as 'hatos', cattle farms run by the Llaneros, the Colombian Cowboys. Stay at a typical Hato (cattle ranch) deep in an otherworldly landscape, where abundant wildlife, cowboy culture and harp music, dramatic sunrises and sunsets combine to give a truly unforgettable experience.
