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

Recommendations

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.

Keep on travelling
