The horses knew the way home and needed little direction from us. We edged slowly higher and higher, as we navigated the winding jungle path. After some time the jungle began to recede and the path led into a clearing. Coffee trees appeared on either side and white butterflies continued to lead us on until we stopped outside of a quaint wooden house. We dismounted and the horses wandered off to graze, they were happy to be home and finally rest.
Mauricio took us around to meet his family and explore the farm while lunch was prepared. We saw his trout ponds, which would be providing lunch, and explored the different plots of Wush Wush. After lunch, we rested and took in the view of even higher peaks and the Magdalena river in the valley below. La Foresta is a truly magical place, and so is the coffee that comes from here.
