Day 1: Salento and Cocora Valley Daytrip:

Salento is a cultural bridge between locals and foreigners that provides an exceptional exchange experience.

We will meet in this charming town to take the road towards the legendary Cocora Valley. Once we’re there, we’ll take a hike where we can appreciate the landscape and the gorgeous wax palms, known for their great beauty and magnitude. After this, we will go back to the town where we can enjoy a delicious typical lunch, trout and fried plantain (specialty of this mythical town). We will have a stroll around Salento. The municipality is also recognized for its elaborate crafts that are offered along the Calle Real. After familiarizing ourselves a bit more with the town we will visit a coffee shop where we will chat and enjoy the softest coffee in the world. If you’re curious enough, the baristas of this region will happily answer any questions you might have about coffee and its preparation. This experience will make you a witness to the intrinsic natural beauty of this town.

In this region we can find 642 species recognized to date, Imagine how many names!
