It has a much cooler temperature than the coastal town below, making it a popular getaway for locals and travelers alike. This former conflict-ridden region is now a peaceful place for birdwatching and drinking the highest quality organic Colombian coffee. Would you like to wake up to the sound of singing birds and howler monkeys? Then this is your place.
