Coffee Tour in Salento

After breakfast this morning, you’ll head out on three-hour coffee tour, where you’ll learn all there is to know about growing and selling the best coffee in the world. Colombia exports the majority of its best beans, so the plantation that you’ll visit is a great place to taste the best this region has to offer. The rest of the day is entirely up to you. You could simply take a stroll through the town and absorb the local lifestyle, or if you’re feeling more adventurous you could rent a jeep and go exploring.
