Caoba nature reserve
Gene bank and medicinal plants

The Caoba Nature Reserve was created in 2007 by a biologist couple from Germany and Colombia. It was started in an effort to create a genetic bank of plants and contribute to the preservation of the local ecosystems.

Caoba natural reserve is located close to Santa Marta, only 15 minutes walking from Carpe Diem and on the path to Minca.
