Just five hours on the road from Medellín you’ll find the country’s famous Coffee Region, or the Eje Cafetero as it’s known in Spanish. Bordered by the cities of Manizales, Pereira and Armenia, this UNESCO World Heritage Site produces much of Colombia’s coffee, which some aficionados argue is the tastiest in the world! The region is also a brilliant spot for nature watching, horse riding across the green hills and bird watching. In fact, Colombia leads the world in avian biodiversity: it is home to 1,889 species, or 20% of all bird species on the planet. 197 species of migratory birds are also temporary residents. We invite you to come with us for an unforgettable experience and visit the colonial village of Salento and the Valley of Cocora with its majestic wax palm trees. Visit a coffee farm close to Salento on a jeep trip through mountain roads, then watch first hand every stage of the coffee production process before preparing your own traditional Colombian style cup of coffee.
