Finca Cafetera

One of the highlights in the Zona Cafetera is staying on a real coffee farm (finca cafetera). This is the perfect way to get to know more about the coffee culture in Colombia and about the coffee process in general. Stay on such a typical finca, enjoy a walk through the coffee fields and relax in a hammock after helping picking the coffee beans.

The package that we offer is accommodation on an amazing situated coffee finca in the middle of the coffee fields. From here we will also visit one of the highlights of the area, Valle  de Cocora. Here you can find the highest palm trees of the world (Palma de Cerra) in a stunning valley. The offered package is from 3 days, but can easily be extended. There is so much more to see and do in this area. The hot springs of Santa Rosa or San Vicente, Nevado del Ruiz, Parque Ucumari, Mariposario in Armenia, the villages Filandia or Marsella, are just a couple of examples of all there is to see and do in this area.

Important:
We offer several options of accommodations for a stay in a coffee finca. Some have basic accommodation and very local with little hotel service and others are more organized:

Finca Villa Maria - 30 minutes from Pereira - very local with basic accommodation with a nice pool and amazing surroundings. Basic coffee tour

Hacienda Venecia - 15 minutes from Manizales - with comfortable accommodation in the Hacienda and standard accommodation in the guesthouse. Great coffee tours

Hacienda Combia - 15 minutes from Armenia - with comfortable accommodation where they can have up to 100 persons. Basic coffee tour.
