Nestled in the lush mountains, you escape to be amongst the massive trees and surrounded by coffee in the charming little town of Salento. Even if you’re not a coffee drinker (like myself) the coffee plantations are still fun and interesting as you take a deeper dive into learning about one of Colombia’s major exports.
Once you’ve made it here you can get around town by foot. You’ll need a ride out to Cocora Valley but other than that even some of the coffee plantations you can walk to (although it obviously takes longer).
Best Hostel in Salento – if you don’t speak Spanish it might be easier to go through a booking site, I didn’t see an English version of their website, but this hostel is great. It’s a great location close to town and walkable to the bus station. It has a helpful staff, great views, chill vibe but also easy to meet people and offers yoga as well.
