The landscape of the coffee region, situated among the mountains of the central chain of the Andes and declared a world heritage site by UNESCO, is very rich in diversity. Due to the influence of the Pacific, we find luxurious and varied vegetation in its mountainous tropical rainforest. The immense wax palm trees embody the charm and beauty of the region and are the national tree of Colombia. Dotted with giant palms which seem closer to the sky than to the ground, the Cocora Valley is an intoxicating place with a rare and surprising beauty in the variety of its flora and fauna. This place so representative of the coffee region is a must-see for anyone visiting Colombia.
