Colombia's Coffee Triangle
The Coffee Triangle is one of the most popular destinations in Colombia and incorporates the three departments (states) of Caldas, Risaralda and Quindío. Offering breathtaking high mountain peaks, luxurious green valleys filled with giant palm trees, and the Paisas - the wonderful and welcoming people.
Highlights of the Colombian Coffee Triangle include the vibrant city of Manizales, the Colombian capital for bull fighting; the Parque de los Nevados with fantastic hiking opportunities amongst volcanoes & mountain lakes; Santa Rosa de Cabal famous for its thermal hot springs; the majestic Valley of Cocora, home to giant Quindio wax palm trees, the largest palms in the world, standing over 60m tall; and the quaint Paisa village of Salento.
