How much are 4 Days in Colombia’s Coffee Region
Colombia’s Coffee Region is a must for everyone that loves green landscapes. Don’t worry if you don’t like any coffee, there’s plenty to do here. The colourful facades of Salento and Filandia seem like a daydream. How much I spent in 4 days travelling the Coffee Zone aka Eje Cafetero or Zona Cafetera here in this post:
My itinerary for 4 days in Colombia’s Coffee Region
Day 0: Fight from Bogotá to Pereira
Day 1: Salento and hiking in Valle de Cocora
Day 2: Day trip to Filandia
Day 3: Coffee Farm near Salento, then back to Pereira
Day 4: Relaxing at the hot springs in Santa Rosa, late flight back to Bogotá
*What I did on day 2 and 3 can also be done in one day, but might be stressful

That’s 73,29€ a day including flights; without flights: 51,16€.
The most important thing on this trip was probably my rain jacket and the cover for my backpack. It was quite rainy and that’s also typical for that region in Colombia.
If you look for more info about Colombia’s Coffee Region, I’ve written an extensive post about what to do, how to get around and where to stay and eat.
