Visit the Cocora Valley

In the town of Salento, 15.5 miles north from Armenia, you can visit the Cocora Valley, where the wax palm, Colombia’s national tree, grows up to 197 feet in height. This tree provides the habitat for a very colorful bird, the yellow-eared parrot. In the valley of Cocora travelers can walk or ride on an eco-trail.
