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.

  • It was amazing this view you can see a lot of things , I been with my horse and it was really funny , also scared because I never been before . I recommend everyone stay in Salento go to Cocora!!!!!  more »
  • It is a picturesque and typical restaurant. Entertained with dances, magicians, etc. The menu to tell the truth is a little low for the size of the restaurant... It would be nice to find more options. We prove the trout, we liked. For children there is option of painting, games, etc.

  • Excellent location in the middle of a spectacular landscape. It has three rooms for those who want a restaurant, who will only share a shot or glass of wine, or for those who want a delicious coffee in the area. Excellent service and super quick. The specialty is the "trout sea", great!
