Bosques de Cocora, Salento

Hike or hop on the back of a horse and ride through lush meadows and green forests of Bosques de Cocora while listening to hummingbirds. A six-hour round trail will take you through the valley, pass waterfalls and over suspension bridges. Rest at the top and take in the scenic views before you start descending towards the tall palm trees. The wax palm, native to these lands, grows as high as 60 m (200 ft) and represents the national tree of Colombia. The restaurant near the trout farm serves delicious local specialties.

  • A must-see! Salento and Filandia are quaint towns and the Cocora valley and Zona Cafetera are absolutely stunning. Every vista is more beautiful than the next.... lush greenery everywhere!  more »
  • The first stop is the main Park of Salento where jeeps take you by close to 4,000 COP there. Cocora is hosting, whether it be camping by nearly 20,000 COP per person or cabins for more price; There is also parking service, restaurant (15.000 COP is a minimum plate), horse back riding, among other activities. It's going in low season as it is a site that covers much tourism and may be not so quiet.

  • Beautiful landscape, by its wax palms the highest in the world and declared the Colombia's national tree, they measure more 60 meters, it is must to visit Quindio. I recommend bringing something to keep warm because it can do apply and cold blocker that can also be hot sun.

Where to stay in Salento

The charming old town of Salento features accommodations that perfectly match the overall atmosphere of days gone by. No hotel seeks to dominate the skyline; some now occupy historical buildings, while more recent builds opt for villa-style looks and scale. Choose between slightly larger hotels with onsite restaurants, pleasant grounds, and picture-perfect balconies, or smaller hostels in formerly residential buildings.
