El Vale del Cocora is a must see if you go to Colombia Its just nature on its best shape. To get there, you must leave from Salento and take one of the Jeeps on the main square. They'll drop you at the main entrance of the park. No payment is required. You can visit the park solo (as I... More

because time was limited, we rented a horse for half an hour, but recommend spending more time hiking or horse riding..

Take your hiking boots and let yourself go in this beautiful Forrest on the Colombian national tree, the wax Palm! Enjoy breathtaking views of a valley stuffed with a one of a kind natural richness, a nice warm weather, and a scenery dominated by 30mt+ Palm trees!

We went on a four hour horseback riding excursion, and one of the areas we visited was Cocoro. It is so green and lush. The air is so pure it defies description. We hardly saw anyone. It felt like we had the whole area to ourselves. A perfect place to just chill out and relax.

The hike was so amazing, the view and scenery will take your breath away. Make sure the weather is good when taking this hike. It was raining which made it very difficult in some parts of the hike. At the top of the hike is private property, there is a 5000 peso entrance fee. This is total worth it!! At... More

Valle de Cocora is the most beautiful place I have ever visited. If you are visiting Salento this is the trek you have to do. Please bring the proper hikking boots as it is often muddy and rainy, especially in the morning. From Salento you can take taxi-jeep straight to the entrance of the natural park. The journey takes around... More

So this is an amazing Cocora valley with those palms :) Plaze is just stunning. Here is a small guide how to make most of it: - Take a shared taxi(willy) from plaza in Salento (when shared with aprox. 8 persons price oneway, one person will be 3400COP). You can also hire a taxi as well, full for your usage... More

This is probably one of the most beautiful hikes Ive ever taken! It is really hard tho but totally worth it. It will take you the whole day to do it. We started going to the right side so we got through the mountain first, it was challenging and we had to stop several times, so take enough food and... More

We did the entire hike on a relatively dry day. On most days, you are advised to wear Wellingtons but we did not. Luckily, it was not as muddy as usual. Saw amazing birds, waterfalls, hummingbirds and crossed many rustic swinging bridges. We did the hike backwards from what was recommended (clockwise instead of counter clockwise). It made for a...

Valle de Cocora was one of the highlights of our trip to Colombia. The views were really varied and beautiful throughout, scaling a number of different climates and throwing up some amazing wildlife. There are lots of funny little bonus sights with farmers rolling through on horseback and whatnot. The Acaime hummingbird sanctuary, about halfway through the main trail, is... More
