We went up to the Palms and took pictures, then she took me through a ranch full of the most beautiful cows I have ever seen, all colors and sizes ! Then up some dangerous steep trails up a river canyon many times riding the... More

It's quite difficult to write a review for this walk because it has some different aspects. First of all there are different routes you can take. But there are almost no signs how to take which route. This makes it difficult, we actually walked wrong 3 times. We red that there is supposed to be a hike that takes 5... More

Take the jeeps from the center square in town, only 3,500 pesos per person (~$1 USD). Once in the valley you can grab a guide (no real maps to speak of) or go off hiking yourself. We chose to a grab a guide, probably didn't really need one but it cost $25 USD, we had someone to tell us about... More

This place is beautiful; we were lucky to have a clear sunny day. We hiked, lazed about, enjoyed a guanabanón and watched the people passing by. The highlight of our visit was a horseback ride to el planchón, just 30 minutes, calm horses. This was my first time on horseback, quite an adventure! Very, very, fun! I asked the guide... More

Plan a few hours to take leisurely hikes or go horseback riding. Plan on having lunch in the area, either taking a picnic or any of the good places that offer the local specialty: trout.

You can expect a beautiful landscape at this walk. I would highly reccomend to leave early and choose a sunny day. The walk is nice and a day trip, afterwards you will be tired for sure. Take hiking boots if you have! A tropical rainforest like forest waits you and the highest palm trees of the world.

If you have ever doubted God exists go to this place. It seems God stamped his breath on it. My family 8 of us traveled to Colombia because we wanted to see all the coffee region of Colombia. The highlight of our trip " Hot springs in Santa Rosa" , Panaca & coffee themed park, and last Salento and the... More

Obviously, this is the reason why people come to Salento, to go the Valle del Cocora. There are two main divisions of paths: around the river or up the mountain. My group did about an hour around the river path before we turned around to go up the mountain. So this hike is not crazy difficult, but will leave you... More
