Peace agreement

Colombia’s security level has evolved positively in the past two decades. With the signing of the Peace treaty at the beginning of 2017, peace was formally restored in the country and Colombians are extremely proud of it.

The kindness and warmth of locals are what surprises visitors the most. Smile is the strategy Colombians use to show the best of them and their country.

The Coffee region

The heart of the well-known Colombian coffee is located at the Coffee Triangle, a region composed by three states: Quindío, Risaralda and Caldas.

Old beautiful haciendas, in the middle of coffee plantations, have been transformed into boutique hotels.

The coffee region offers tourists the possibility to understand the tradition of planting and producing coffee, stare with awe at large coffee plantations and enjoy coffee national themed parks.
