Hato El Boral, a working cattle ranch in Colombia's Eastern plains, is a surreal place in the heart of the savannas that has just opened its doors to magic seeking adventurers, nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts. The 3000-hectare hacienda is home to exotic bird species, hundreds of capybaras, white-tailed deer, felines, anacondas, caimans, porcupines, anteaters and howlers, which inhabit the extensive savannas, savanna forests, wetlands and lagoons of El Boral.
Lasso roping cowboys, meals prepared over the wood fire, fishing piranhas for supper, stalking anacondas and anteaters, riding across infinite prairies and enjoying a good laugh with the locals - this is what a true Llanos adventure is all about.
Rural guesthouse Posada El Diamante is a retreat for both human visitors and animal visitors. Located just outside the village of San Luis de Palenque, an area of pristine beauty, and about two and a half hours from Yopal it is the ideal base for a couple of days to discover the Llanos' wildlife, culture and sceneries on excursions into the surroundings. Wildlife frequents the property's pastures, orchards, gardens, forest and river beach and makes it a haven for nature lovers and birdwatchers looking for peace and tranquility - and the most amazing starlit sky at night!
