The Colombian region of 'Eje Cafetero' is a unique and fascinating place of several departments and municipalities, including Risaralda, Quindio, and Caldas. This area, also known as the Coffee Triangle, has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country after the Atlantic coast. The proximity between these departments makes it easy to visit a wide variety of places in a short time, with travel times of no more than 1 hour and 30 minutes between them.

The coffee region boasts a vast diversity of climates and tourist attractions, including theme parks, churches, farms, nature reserves, and venues for extreme and adventure sports. Moreover, it is home to a rich variety of flora and fauna, including the spectacled bear, various species of birds, and felines, among others.

It is worth noting that this beautiful region is famous worldwide for being one of the main coffee producers. Colombia is the second-largest producer after Brazil. However, the Coffee Triangle is not only known for its coffee production but also for its geographical, economic, and cultural significance. In fact, in 2011, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site due to its rich cultural traditions and stunning landscapes.

By Land:
Each of the 3 cities has its Transportation Terminal used by thousands of travelers to leave and arrive to and from all the cities and municipalities of Colombia.

How to move?

Like all cities in Colombia, streets are called 'calles' and 'carreras', in Manizales and Pereira the 'calles' go north-south, and 'carreras' go east-west. In Armenia, the direction changes with 'calles' going east-west and 'carreras' north-south. These are small cities where transportation is easy since they do not exceed 500,000 inhabitants each.

Public Transportation: In all destinations public transportation system is offered with buses and taxis, however, many hotels and attractions are located outside the urban area, and traveling by public transportation can be difficult and expensive, for this reason it is advisable to request assistance with a Tour Operator or rent a car.

Cuisine

Sancocho Antioqueno

Sancocho Antioqueno

The typical food of the 'Eje Cafetero' is the peasant food that has endured throughout the centuries. Although modernity has brought gourmet dishes and international preparations, paisa gastronomy, influenced by the Spanish colony, continues to be the protagonist in the region. Some of the most representative dishes include 'bandeja paisa', 'mondongo', the sancocho, the 'calentao paisa', and arepa.

The sancocho is a very traditional peasant dish that has remained practically the same since colonial times. It is a broth rich in carbohydrates, so those who are watching their diet should avoid going near the cauldron. Sancocho is a delicious combination of potatoes, yuca, plantain, and different types of meat, all in generous portions. Additionally, it is served with rice, salad, avocado, and possibly another piece of extra meat.
