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...

This park is a natural beauty absolutely worth going if you are in Salento. Leave early in the morning (7h30am)if you want to enjoy the full day at the park and not get back too late. Entrance is free an dthe detour to the hummingbird house is definetely worth it. There are so mny! The hikes can be difficult at... More

Scheduled jeeps leave Salento at 9:30 am, but we wanted to leave a bit before then. Luckily we found a couple other travelers to take a "private jeep" with us (the driver would only take a max of 5 people for some reason). It was quick ride from the center of town and nice to beat the rush of other... More

This hike was one of the highlights of our trip to Colombia. It was a little strenuous (we're in our late 60's) but so worth it. The views were incredible and the wax palms amazing. Don't miss this hike. Take plenty of snacks to keep you going. Bonus - There's a beer stop at the top!

Great hike in a gorgeous environment with impressive waxpalms. Don't skip on the 'casa del colibri'!

To go to Valle de Cocora, you must take a ride in a jeep with 8 or 9 others trekkies. I chose Jeep Willy's which is located in the Salento Parque. Valle de Cocora is an amazing location full of giant palm trees. The day I went the sky was cloudy and those clouds hung over the nearby mountains. As... More

The place is very beatiful, but the dropoff point of the willys is not the entry of the park or the Vale do Cocora. There isn't much information, after walking a lit bit futher we manage to find guides and have a very good short trekking, The Palms are amazing and the guides very helpful and full of knowlodge.

A very energising walk and a great way to spend a day in Salento. As others have mentioned it is worth getting an early jeep from the town square out to the Valley as it is a lot busier later in the day, although we were there between Xmas and NY so there were lots of holidaying Colombians in the...

Beautiful scenery from open valley surrounded by the tallest wax palm trees to forested trails with creeks running along side. Bring good shoes waterproof if possible a small towel if you have warm weather to go for a cooling swim. Can be a long day if you want to go to the top. A good challenge is to get to... More
