Colombia’s Coffee Triangle: Pereira, Manizales and Armenia

Recently, and deservedly, made a UNESCO world heritage site, the Coffee Triangle is hidden away in the rolling hills of Colombia. It is a lush green landscape dotted with coffee plantations, spectacular flora and fauna, including the huge wax palms in the serene Valle de Cocora and brightly coloured haciendas, or “fincas”, which provide fantastic accommodation. The feel of the fincas of Pereira and Armenia have been compared to the estancias of Argentina in decades gone by and there are plenty of hiking, horseback riding and walking options as well as an abundance of coffee plantations to visit where you can learn about the process of making coffee, from the cultivation to preparation of the worlds finest blends.

Best time to go

The zona cafetera is cooler than the coastal regions and again, a year-round destination


The coffee triangle of Colombia is comprised of the regions of Caldas, Risaralda and Quindio, of which Manizales, Pereira and Armenia are the most important towns. It is the epicentre of Colombia’s world-renowned arabica coffee production.

Latin Routes tips

Salento (near Armenia) is very pretty, safe and close to the mountains and the nicest town in the region and the Cocora national park (wax palms) is a must see for the giant wax palms as they rise up into the mist.
