We took the tour on horseback to the mirador which was really worth it. The scenery is breathtaking beautiful. Make sure you come before noon, since the afternoon tends to be cloudy and windy which ruins big part of the experience

I love going here, to see all the palm trees, experience the vastness of a landscape that is unique in the world is pretty amazing. I will have to come back with more time to take longer hikes. There are horses for rent, a bit expensively, and there are lots of tracks for hiking, but they are not very well... More

The valley de cocora is stunning (especially the wax palm trees). If you are going on a hike go through the palm trees as they are stunning. You can ride horses for two hours (5 horses) for £70. I recommend to go on a clear warm day :)) Mara, 12

Amazing hike through breathtaking scenery. Valley of the Palms was spectacular. Steep but worth it. Hummingbird reserve at the top for a little break. Refreshment included in the COP5,000 price.

I did the 5 hour loop which is completely worth it if you have the time. So you can do the walk clockwise or anticlockwise. Most, including myself, go anticlockwise as it means the really spectacular scenery of the wax palms is featured on the 2nd half. If you want to do it like I did walk through the blue... More

We left early, and rode horses thru the valley. The scenery is breathtaking, and the tall wax palms are magnificent. The ride up the mountain is a bit tough, as there are a few steep climbs and a few streams to cross. We went all the way to the "Colibri farm". ( extra entrance fee) the farm has no much... More

We're not the hiking type and wouldn't be caught dead doing a 5 day camping thing ever but Cocora Park was totally stunning. When you arrive in the jeep, you're missing a few raptors but its exactly like the Jurassic Park scene....stunning vibes! Jeeps run approx between 7-10am from main plaza of Salento, cost per person one way 3600 pesos.... More

Awesome hike. Hit Acaime and La casa de los colibris. And then be sure to do the full loop with La Montana. Sure it's steep but it is all downhill after the peak and the views are incredible. If you think La Montana will be too tough for you to do then don't do the hike to begin with, you're... More

I suggest to all tourist and Colombians to visit this place. The park is beautiful but might not be there for long if we do not start to take better care of our planet. After this sour note, I must say we had a great fun. We visited only a tiny side of the park and will for sure go... More
