After morning hotel pickup in Medellín, travel with your guide south on the scenic coffee highway for about four hours and reach Manizales, the capital of Caldas department founded in 1848. Built on precipitous ridges, Manizales serves as a major commercial hub with fantastic viewpoints.
Start off your city tour at Plaza de Bolívar, where you’ll admire the Neoclassical architecture of the government palace and the Neogothic-style cathedral. Then, follow your guide to a special location for a grand view of Bolívar Condor, a statue perched high above in the middle of the square known locally as El Libertador — part condor, part military leader Simón Bolívar who fought against the Spanish empire.
Next, stroll down the main street of Carrera 23 and board a cable car that will swoop you over the city and across beautiful Quebrada Olivares. On the other side of the gorge, board your awaiting vehicle and head to the nearby suburb of Chipre. Cruise along its main avenue and arrive at the impressive sculpture of Monumento a los Colonizadores, from where you’ll capture magnificent panoramas of coffee country.
Back in the heart of Manizales’ upscale Zona Rosa district, dig into a delicious lunch at a local restaurant offering authentic regional fare, such as fresh trout seasoned with herbs along with patacones (fried-green plantains), as well as international cuisine.
After lunch, drive a short distance to Hacienda Venecia, a coffee farm that has retained its early 20th century colonial architecture. It's here on a steep mountainside where you'll stay for both nights of the tour. After check-in, relax in a hammock, lounge by the pool or stroll through the landscaped garden. Bird lovers can take a self-guided tour on the lush grounds of the plantation.
If you’ve opted for the Supreme Package, tuck into a sumptuous homemade dinner on-site (vegetarian option available). If you’ve chosen the Standard Package, you may purchase dinner at the hacienda or take a taxi to a restaurant of your choice in downtown Manizales (own expense).

Day 2: Salento – Cocora Valley (B, D)
Following a wonderful breakfast of eggs, bread, arepas (flatbreads), hot chocolate, juice and fresh fruit, travel for about two hours south to Salento, shrouded in fog on a mountaintop in the province of Quindio.
Don't be shy about asking your driver for suggestions before you set off for three hours of exploring the little town at your own pace. Discover the delights lining the colorful street of Calle Real with its traditional colonial architecture, and step into organic coffee shops and handicraft and antique stores. Ascend the staircase of Alto de la Cruz, at the top of which you’re rewarded with dramatic views of verdant valleys and coffee farmlands. Purchase lunch at one of the many eye-catching eateries.
Then you’re back in the vehicle en route to Cocora Valley, located inside tropical Parque Nacional de los Nevados. Spend your two hours here in one of several ways: follow your driver on a maze of trails passing through grasslands, towering wax palms, creeks and cloud forests; hire a guide on-site (own expense) for your hike and hear commentary on the local plant and animal life; or traverse the wonders of Cocora Valley by horse, available for rent (own expense).
Afterward, return to Hacienda Venecia and enjoy dinner on-site before tucking into bed.

Day 3: Hacienda Venecia Coffee Farm (B)
After digging into another hearty breakfast, take a guided tour of Hacienda Venecia for a unique look into Colombia’s coffee tradition. As you walk about the vertiginous plantation, learn about growing cafetos (coffee trees) in small plots in the high forests and the way farmers have adapted cultivation on the challenging mountain terrain, practices that have passed down from generation to generation.
Visit the beneficiadero, the processing site, where you’ll hear about the traditional and modern methods of producing coffee. Then head back to the main house to taste a cup of the delicious end result, after which you’ll have an opportunity to buy Venecia coffee to take home.
Following the morning tour, you’ll have time for lunch (available for purchase on-site) before you’re transported back to your Medellín hotel.
