El hermoso paisaje que combina el canto de las aves, la vegetacion exuberante y los caminos de herradura, ofrece a los visitantes el mas maravilloso intercambio con la naturaleza a 2.450 Metros de altura sobre el nivel del mar.

You should go to see the Colibris, how many around that wooden house where is a surprise to arrive! Beautiful "vuelta", a 4- 5 hours ring with a short walk on the right for Acaime, the house of Colibris. Jungle and some fincas. I won't forget zebù and cows grazing under the sixty meters high wax Palms on such a... More

Nice morning hike, took us 4 hour with 30 min stop at the bird sanctuary (5,000 COP entry which includes a coffee/pop/hot chocolate). Views are fantastic, would recommend hiking to Acime first then back via the coffee farm, this way you have the best views on the downhill walk and see them every step of the way. It can get...

This is the TOP attraction in the area. A MUST. When in Salento you just need to take a "willy" a lovely jeep shared by 8 which will cost you around 3400 COP one way and takes about 20 mins. If you don't want to share, you can rent it for yourself. Once there take the entrance by the trout... More

My boyfriend and I had very little to visit the Valley de Cocora but were told it's a crime to come to Salento and not go to see the palms... so we had to go by ourselves and 'charter' a Jeep Willy for ourselves (the cost was 27K pesos) and we also didn'.t have time to do the entire trek,... More

Went to have local fish lunch at "Donde JuanB" the restaurant is away from the city but the drive is beautiful. Great service. Only downside is that they don't have coffee and you need to get it from a stand located on their parking lot, our waitress was very friendly and went to get it from us.

Great hike but you need a little shape. Lots of climbing paths through the jungle, next to small rivers. Grab a jeep on the main plaza in Salento for 3400 COP and try to stand at the back for the best experience. They drop you of and after you pay take the first path to the right at the blue... More

Stunning, amazing, and gorgeous place. Describing El Valle de Cocora this way is still not enough. If you love adventure, hiking, and nature this place is for you. There is even a part of the hike where you can see hummingbirds inches away from you! There is a small admission of 5,000 pesos, but it's worth it. The entire hike... More

Go prepared to hike, get enough snacks and a good camera! The whole thing is a 5-6 hour hike but much worth the effort. There is also the option to just see the valley which may be enough for some people.
