👍👍 This has to be one of the best things I've ever done. Our guide Steven was knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. His enthusiasm for coffee was brilliant and infectious. We came away knowing so much more about the drink we consume every day and with a new appreciation for how it is produced. Would...

👍👍 Very cool experience. I would recommend the long walk route. However you need to know that a lot of this way if flooded. You literally walking on water. No other choice. And get dressed well as on the top is a bit chilly. Amazing experience.

Finca El Ocaso Salento
😐 We came here for a basic coffee tour which was still more expensive than other tours in the area that we enjoyed a little more. But it is interesting to see a larger scale operation. The tour guides all speak perfect English and it's a nice experience with picking coffee beans which is a nice touch....

👍 Best place cost/benefits. It has two amazing viewpoints, the area is well designed, the trails are easy to follow and you will enjoy this place all day. The only drawback is that there is not a proper restaurant there, so if you are looking for food you barely will find some bakery or snacks to eat...

Mirador de Salento
Observation deck
👍👍 At this viewpoint you have an amazing view over the nature around Salento. I also recommend walking around this area because there are fewer tourists here. There is a path between 'Mirador de Salento' and 'Mirador Alto de la Cruz' that is not shown on Google Maps. You should visit both viewpoints b...

Cocora Valley Trail
Hiking area
👍👍 A variety of available hike paths. The entire path takes around 5-7 hours to complete. This time we were with a 5 and 8byear old so we just went up to the second Mirador, which took a little over an hour. There are no maps along the path so make sure you look at the one at the beginning. It is a mod...

👍👍 It's a typical place where architecture of one hundred years ago can be found. The coffee shop has a different concept than many of the places I know.The house has ancient decorations around all the walls and in the furnitures. The pots show the menu pasted in its sides and the hot coffee is served...

We paid 3000 pesos for the short ride, then we walke...
