Reasons to Visit

Coffee Region

Pereira is the perfect base from which to explore the Coffee Triangle - Colombia's mountainous coffee growing region. A combination of higher altitude, periodic rain and a warm year-round climate, provide the ideal conditions for the cultivation of coffee, considered to be some of the best in the world. The lush green vegetation which covers the mountain-side provides spectacular scenery in which to hike and is dotted with historic Spanish-style haciendas, where landowners directed the coffee production and export. Whilst many of these are still functioning today, some have been converted into stylish boutique hotels.
