Colombia: Coffee Region (Zona Cafetera)

Colombian coffee is enjoyed all over the world. Couched in rolling, emerald green hills between the cities of Pereira, Armenia and Manizales in the western Andes is the triangular region which produces the distinctive bean. Agriculture here is diversifying but the terraced coffee fincas, interspersed with bamboo jungles and giant banana plants, still dominate the attractive landscape. Recently, several of these historic properties have opened their doors to visitors. Alongside them are new purpose-built countryside hotels. At this altitude (1,400m - 2,200m) the climate is delightful and conducive to a restful wind down, with thermal pools, adventure sports, theme parks and walking trails to enjoy.
