A vibrant village that rests west of Bogota, Salento is not to be overlooked. Thousands of tourist travel here every year on their way to the Valle de Cocora. Inside of the colorful buildings you will find artisans of all types selling their goods and trading their knowledge of the land and resources with the people around them. If you're looking for a place to try the typical Colombian food, look no further than the bustling plaza in the center of the town. After a long day exploring the Valle de Cocora, we treated ourselves to a nice, cold limonada de coco. Imagine having your favorite key-lime pie but the liquid version. We stayed in a hostel that was about a ten minute walk outside of town, and it was well worth it. La Serrana Eco Farm and Hostel offered stunning views of the rolling hills that surround the area as well as an abundance of exotic plants and beautiful flowers. La Serrana and Salento did not disappoint.
