Salento is a beautiful little town nestled in small hills of Colombia’s coffee region. It is one of the most charming towns in Colombia in one of the most beautiful areas.

Most people who end up there are very hesitant to leave after just a couple of days. It is culturally rich and a great place to take a tour of one of the many coffee plantations in the area.

The highlight of Salento for me was La Valle de Cocora, a magical valley ten minutes from Salento by car.

La Valle de Cocora is home to Colombia’s national tree, the wax palm.

The two and a half hour-long hike through the valley is breathtaking and a good chance to take in the natural beauty of the area. Highly recommended.

We stayed at a wonderful hostel called The Plantation House, run by a very friendly Englishman. It offers free coffee and tours to a couple of local coffee plantations.
