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. El sitio esta ubicado en el Km 11 via Valle del Cocora saliendo del Municipio de Salento y desde la ciudad de Armenia se llega en 30 minutos. El plato representativo de la region es la trucha, dentro de las sugerencias del chef, tenemos nuestra afamada y deliciosa Trucha Mar Adentro, como plato de frutos del mar nuestra Cazuela de Mariscos y como plato innovador nuestro cochinillo a la Cocora.

Colombia has lots of places with nature but Valle de Cocora is a great place to visit and to get great walks and views. I went there solo and also you'll meet for sure lots of young backpackers and good people. It is very safe and you'll not get lost there.

Amazing views, clean air, Colombian approach to drive you to on the old Willy's jeeps. Not much information on the route made us go wrong to the deep forest and 2900 metes above sea level. Valle de Cocora definitely is a must see in Colombia.

This is a really special place and you cannot miss out if you are in Salento. I think even the most world-weary traveller would find this valley and the stunning scenery really spectacular, the wax plams in particular are astounding and even after viewing several photos I wasn't prepared for how massive they are! We caught the 9.30am jeep from... More

This place has the most beautiful views, very magical! Go for a horse back riding ride and enjoy the peace.

The hike is a must if you stay in the area. You don't need a guide, it's no problem doing this on your own. If you do the whole trek you need approx 5 to 6 hrs. The scenery is amazing and very diverse. It's not exhausting, anybody can do it. There is one part for approx. 30 minutes which... More

We initially planned on only viewing the palm grove at the end of the village of Cocora but ended up doing the full trek which took us the whole day. This was because the change of scenery, from the palm grove, to beautiful view of the valley from high up the pass near La Montana, trekking through cloud forest on... More

I expected a super easy hike, but found it to be surprisingly hard, especially the uphill parts. Not hard, just surprisingly hard. Great views especially at the beginning and end of the trek.

We went just for the view, but quickly decided we should return for the entire park hike. We were told oh yeah, it's a nice five hour loop, bring snacks and then come have lunch! So we did. The inclines are relentless. Granted I was feeling a bit under the weather, but it's not super easy. The whole terrain is... More

A must visit if you are in the area. A paved road take you from Salento to this park. You can explore this wonderful nature park by foot or by horses. Expect mud on the trails specially in the cloud forest.
