Since UNESCO added Colombia’s coffee region to its list of World Heritage sites, Armenia and surrounding towns and cities have grown into some of the country’s most popular tourist destinations. And rightly so, blending courteous attention to detail, local charm, unrivalled coffee and fantastic attractions you would be doing the region an injustice by not visiting.
Roughly 300km from Bogota and close to both Medellin and Cali, Armenia’s volcanic soil is perfect for coffee cultivation and the topography lends itself to all sorts of adventures.
Enjoy paragliding, hiking and horse riding amongst other outdoor pursuits or content yourself with the established and popular attractions of the Parque Nacional del Café, the bamboo and regional architecture found in the leafy confines of the centrally located Parque de la Vida or learn about the pre-Columbian culture of the Quimbaya people in the Museo del Oro Quimbaya

Don’t Miss:

  • The Quindio Botanical Garden with its excellent butterfly house
  • Colombia’s very own Parque Nacional del Café
  • The downtown Parque de la Vida
