Our Team

RENE SUTER

GENERAL MANAGER

Rene Suter is a Swiss ex patriot and the founder and manager of the Finca El Maco. He is also a partner founder of CHASKA TOURS and has been a guide for a number of travel agencies. 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.
