e are a hotel in the Andes Mountains of La Buitrera in the Valle de Cauca department of Colombia. When you stay at our Ecolodge we want all visitors to feel comfortable like they are in their own home. We are unique because we limit our guests to one group at a time so we can give you personal attention, personalized menus and tours of your choice. We offer activities with the price of the room along with breakfast. Other meals are inexpensive and delicious and we try to accommodate all dietary requests. We have an organic garden and many fruit trees on the property.
Hummingbirds are our prized possession with over 40 species here at our Villa and there are observation areas on all floors of Villa Migelita Ecolodge. Bird watching is incredible and we have feeding stations for our other Neotropical birds all around the grounds, along with beautiful flora. Columbia has the most species of birds in the world, the most species of flowers and the most fruits.
We have a lake on our grounds along with many areas to hang in a hammock, sit under a kiosko or in strategically placed chairs to watch the nature that is constantly evolving and changing. Butterflies are abundant in the gardens here at Villa Migelita Ecolodge. Colombia also has the most species of butterflies in the world.

Hummings From Paradise


am an American who moved to Colombia to find peace after the devastating loss of my daughter. I bought and renovated a Villa, am learning Spanish, and writing as catharsis. This blog will be like a book with chapters. Each blog will be about my life in Colombia and my adventures. I hope you will enjoy the many new discoveries I am making every day about myself and another culture.
