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.

  • Wow, what a great place to hang out and sit in the gras. It is beautiful, really great to make pictures.  more »
  • Spectacular site, we could see the national tree of the palma de cera, cloud forest and even we had to see a condor of the andes, which is in danger of extinction.

  • Do not miss this excursion to Cocora Valley and those majestic Wax Palms - we walked for about an hour but longer trips will take you higher or into more jungle.  more »
