Start the day with 10am pickup at your centrally-located hotel in Armenia, then travel to the first stop of the day, the Museo del Oro Quimbaya, or Quimbaya Gold Museum. Trace the story of Colombian gold through the art and artisanship of the indigenous Quimbaya culture, whose treasures are preserved in a series of fascinating exhibits.
After your time at the museum, continue to a local restaurant for lunch, choosing from several menus of local cuisine. The next stop is one of Armenia’s biggest parks, El Parque de la Vida, or “the park of life.” Follow scenic walking paths through the 20-acre (8-ha.) park, where you’ll find waterfalls, lush greenery, and interpretive signs.
Visit a local coffee shop for a personalized coffee tasting with an experienced barista, learning about brewing techniques that highlight the distinctive quality of beans grown in Colombia’s coffee triangle. This 8-hour, private tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
