The coffee axis

The coffee axis

Some time ago I wanted to write a little about the walk I made last Easter, because in 2 days I managed to visit many places that are worth visiting by all. It is about the coffee region, a place that has so much to do and to know that an article simply falls short.

Located in the department of Quind√≠o, the coffee region is an area of ‚Äč‚Äčthe country that has taken on a great tourist boost in recent decades, thanks to initiatives to create tourist attractions such as Parque del Caf√©, Panaca, El Jard√≠n Bot√°nico, Salento, the Cocora valley and thousands of other attractions that we can visit very easily because they are within a very short distance from each other.

The Botanical Garden

On this occasion we left Cali, in Carro towards Quindío, and as always thanks to the inevitable Google Maps guide, I did not lose my way. In about 4 hours we were already entering the department of Quindío and heading to our first destination, the Botanical Garden which is located just 10 minutes from Calarcá. This is a natural park known mainly for its huge butterfly farm that houses species of butterflies from the region that you can see flying free around you. The tour of this park is a guided trail of approximately 2 hours, where you can observe the native flora and fauna of the area. It is a very pleasant ecological walk that can be done as a family. One of the things that I liked the most about this park was the carnivorous plants section, I had always seen them in photos but never live and direct, and despite being much smaller than I imagined, they are very interesting.
