Adoptive Familes.

We recognize the journey to parenthood comes with a wide range of emotions and some challenges. Choosing a place to stay is a decision not to be taken lightly.

The average process time in Bogota is 4  to 6 weeks.  You might desire a private, warm, cozy and welcoming accommodation, not any regular hotel or Airbnb.

We believe that adoption is a long pregnancy with a delivery that raises the spirit. Furthermore, we know from our own experience that you are staying at the birth country of your children, not just to complete the adoption paperwork, but also to create emotional ties for the rest of your life, and to learn about your children’s homeland, including the culture, customs, and gastronomy. 

 Over time, the experience of staying in Colombia will be the adoption story that you will later share with your children over and over again.


Zuetana means “home” in the language of our ancestors; the indigenous community who inhabited the central region of Colombia. Since 2001, we have welcomed to Bogotá more than 1,000 families from around the world, including U.S., German, Canada, Spain, France, Italy, Swedish, Norway, Finland, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. We have shared with these families the joy of becoming parents of Colombian children.

Why Zuetana?

Zuetana Home-apartments

  • Flexible check-in and check-out dates; sometimes you cannot control them and we understand that.

  • Family-friendly staff; some of them speak English, Italian and/or French

  • Our staff is compassionate and sensitive, giving you the discretion and privacy you and your family needs.

  • We are local friends that help you on a daily basis. You would probably have several questions about how to navigate a new city. Yes, you can google them, but our assistance is faster and warmer.

  • We provide you with cribs, utensils, toys  for babies/children and a nice garden inside the property.

  • Housekeeping service 3 times per week.

  • Weekly payment; after 20 years we know how the process works and we are very flexible

  • Self-service laundry

Airbnb property or Traditional Hotel

  • Non flexible policies for reservations

  • Massive crowds and overbearing restrictions.

  • Non-compassionate neighbors, that may not understand that children need some time to adapt. 

  • The airbnb host may not meet you personally during the whole stay . You get a code or the key to open the property and that is all. 

  • Most owners of Airbnbs run the properties as a “second or  even third job”. Assisting you is our first and only job.

  • Usually no cribs, or small beds, baby bath tubs etc..are  available (they are not used to host babies or young children )

  • Properties and apartments are for business men or tourist guests. Your needs and expectations as a family with children are quite different

  • No cleaning service is offered during the whole stay in an Airbnb property. 

  • Total payments are required to be done in advance for the whole stay and you do not know the exact dates of your trip. You may risk that if you need to stay longer there will be no availability.

  • In a traditional hotel you cannot cook your own meals and hotel restaurants are expensive for a family with children.

  • Laundry services in Hotels are  usually quite expensive.

En Zuetana encontramos un auténtico segundo hogar , lejos de nuestra casa en Suecia.  Todos ustedes hicieron todo lo posible para facilitarnos el comienzo de nuestra nueva etapa de vida como “ papas” y nos apoyaron y ayudaron mucho de verdad.  Nos acogieron con tanto afecto que inmediatamente nos sentimos parte de la familia Zuetana.
