This is a must see if you are in the Salento area. The scenery in the Cocora valley is breathtaking. The wax Palm trees are an amazing spectacle. They tower over the lush green valley reaching up to the clouds. The hike through the valley takes you up through the forrest, over streams and up to the top of the... More

Just did the hike. Was amazing. It's a little hard... The first leg is a steady but fairly easy uphill through beautiful mountainy farmlands and then through the forest which is sort of rocky but makes it interesting. Your heart will be beatin faster than a normal walk but it feels great. You'll also have to cross several rope bridge... More

We left Salento main plaza at 9.30am with a jeep and got to the start of the walk after half an hour. If you choose to go see the birds reserve first , it is a bit less than a couple of hours walk in a beautiful jungly like forest with charming wooden bridges along the way. Once at the... More

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

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
