History from Chaska Tours

After being in the tourist business for many years through running Finca El Maco (www.elmaco.ch), a Hostel in San Agustin Huila, a natural and archeological destination, we decided we wanted to share our amazing experience in Colombia with other travelers. Through the organization of various travel companies outside of San Agustin, we had the pleasure of leading some of the first travel groups, through the region. Rene Suter is a Swiss ex patriot is the founder and manager of Finca El Maco. He is also a partner founder of CHASKA TOURS and has been a guide for a number of travel agencies. Through getting to know other intermediaries like him from Germany, Switzerland, Austria etc. has helped him confirm the spell that Colombia puts on all those who choose to visit, a spell which captured him 24 years ago and never let go. Rene fell in love with Colombia so much that he decided to stay, creating his own business and raising a family.
