Sitting at the bottom of the hill next to the Río Quindío, Camping Monteroca offers something a little different. Owner Jorge has run the site for 30 years and knows the area, its history and wildlife well. The place is well maintained with clean bathrooms, showers, a communal cooking area and TV lounge. There is an eclectic museum filled with fossils and meteorites as well as a room dedicated to Simón Bolívar, who is reported to have stayed a night there. There’s also a serpentarium. While the normal campsite is fine, what makes this place special is the themed cabins. Among others, you can sleep in your own jungle tree house or step into the past with a Beatles-themed cabin complete with waterbed. All cabins offer good privacy, a stove and hot showers.
