The Dann Carlton surpassed all expectations. From the moment you enter the lobby, it's old world service. Comfortable, good size rooms, great breakfast and a very helpful bilingual staff.

From El Peñol you can also visit La Finca de la Manuela, which was one of Pablo Escobar's country houses (finca). We walked there and saw the ...
... great time giving my gifts to Adrián and his mom :) I got them beautiful handmade stockings from Guatemala and filled them with treats and textiles. Also, my mom thoughtfully sent maple cookies addressed to Adrian's whole family...and they were a big hit.
