Colombia is the third-largest producer of coffee on the planet, but opportunities for adventure in the coffee region go far beyond delicious, organic cups of joe! The heart of the area is Salento, a small town that has been all but taken over by tourists thanks to its proximity to Valle de Cocora; a stunning valley in Los Nevados National Natural Park. Here, you can wander beneath world-famous Quindío wax palms—the tallest species of palm tree in the world, reaching up to 200 feet! The surrounding area also offers mountain biking, horseback riding, fantastic dining and shopping, and coffee tours at nearby farms. Perhaps the most unexpected part of Colombia’s coffee triangle is its welcoming people, who genuinely cherish sharing their slice of heaven with the world.
