The park is a typical “theme park” with cable cars, cable seats, a train which tours the park, a museum of coffee and lots of rides. The visit took place on 6th January. We arrived at 11.30 and went straight to watch the “Show.” This consisted mostly of dances which are colourful and interesting and performed with great skill and passion. When we were queuing, it started to rain and when we came out of the coliseum it had developed into a thunderstorm with a lot of lightning we went down to the Plaza Bolivar to the main restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised with the restaurant which was tastefully decorated and offered good quality food and wine at reasonable prices. After lunch, it was still raining and we joined a group of a few hundred people taking shelter and waiting for train to go back to the exit level. Unfortunately, all transport including cable cars had been suspended due to the weather. We were informed that buses had been organised at the foot of the steps so we braved the rain and walked there. There was one small bus and a queue enough to fill six. As it was getting late we had to climb about 250 steps up to the exit level in the pouring rain. I can’t comment on the rest of the attractions but I’m sure that the visit would be worthwhile in good weather.

Nice place to spend the whole day. I enjoyed a lot with my husband. If you park outside you pay less and it's easier to get out.

Entrance to the park was included in our package so we went. It was cute, but nothing outstanding. Probably better for children, as we were two couples without kids.

This place is beautiful! You will learn about coffee's culture and have fun with some of its attractions, nice lookouts and paths to walk. Anyone will enjoy this theme park.
I strongly recomend "El Show del Café" you cannot miss it, which is gorgeous, colorful and passionate. It shows the majority of typical dances from Colombia, so proud of it :)

Its a Colombian amusement park that combines children´s attractions in the amusement park and a section with the history of coffee and diverse activities that recreate life in the 19th century coffee region. Don´t miss it. It is part of a beautiful green environment declared cultural world herigage by Unesco in 2011. It has walking paths in a tropical vegetarion, hanging bridges, a pole where young ones can throw themselves to see the view from the sky and imitations of Colombian villages, train stations and typical farmer´s houses. There is museum with the history of coffee and the description of its farming. A show of Colombian typical dances makes you want to step in and dance.
Plan a whole day for the visit. Take walking shoes and comfortable clothing. It is usually sunny, so protect your skin. But some months it can also rain, be prepared.
I didnt go to the amusement park but it has many attractive activities for children. Whatever the age and interests, there is something for everybody.
