Hills and Valleys in the Andean RegionThis area of Colombia boasts cultural diversity that enchants travelers with its music and cuisine. The eyes behold a stunning variety of shades of green.
The coffee culture of the mountains of Caldas, Risaralda, Quindío, Antioquia and Santander; the clothes that range from cold weather ponchos to the Aguadas hat all mark Andean coffee culture.
In the departments of Antioquia, Tolima, Valle del Cauca and Boyacá Carranguera, pasillo, bambuco guabina, rajaleña and sanjuanero among others are heard and danced to.
Among the mountaineer’s dish with beans and the santafereño ajiaco soup made with guascas (a fragrant herb) a menu unfolds that includes tamales wrapped in corn, suckling pig and much more.
