If you are visiting Colombia's Coffee Triangle, you need to take time to visit Bosques de Cocora the breath taking views are amazing. We did a 3 hour hike, while the kids were on the horses next to us.

A must do in Salento. But don't wait modern or organized infrastructure, its all about nature. The landscape is just astonishing.

The Valle de Cocora is one of the must-sees when visiting the region of Quindio. This valley is part of the Las Nevadas Natural National park and is famous for the Quindio wax palm. You won’t find any place in the world with a higher concentration of this up to 60 meters high palms the national tree and symbol of... More

We enjoyed a beautiful day on horseback, or rather, two hours, which was just what we wanted. The guide walked alongside and though he wasn't pointing out flora or whatever, he was really pleasant and took good care of us. My niece got scared on a descent and he walked her horse around it, just as relaxed as he could... More

Valle del Cocora was one of my favorite stops in Colombia. The hike was a wonderful way to spend a day, with the rivers and the fields full of cows, and the pit stop at the CAIME house where the humming birds buzzed around your head as you enjoyed a delicious hot drink, possibly with queso (cheese) in it. The... More

a beautiful but much harder hike than was described in a lot of places! some descriptions said the way to the hummingbird reserve was all flat but it was mostly an uphill climb. my friend was not feeling 100% so the hike took us pretty long (~6-7 hours)

You have to visit the palm trees of cocora - they are different from anything else you have seen so far

If you want to see it all get up early and prepare for a 3-4 hour hike, the jeeps leave from the main square (you will notice them, colourful and they call them willys) at around 7:30 or you can wait until one fills up (8 people per jeep) which is what we did and left at around 8 am.... More

This hike was amazing, however it's a 4 hour long trip! Be prepared to put on some sporty clothes and nice and comfortable tennis shoes that you don't mind getting wet. Bring a towel, cause you're going to sweat a lot, and put on some sunscreen, just in case the sun comes out while you're walking. Have a good night... More

I traveled alone to Salento and would certainly do so again. My favorite part of the day trip (I was based in Manizales) was my trek around Bosques/Valle de Cocora. The weather was pretty typical - warm, drizzly, intermittent sun and cloud. The walk from where the jeeps leave you (they are departing about every 30 minutes from the main... More
