To the north-west of Quindio's capital lies the spectacular Valle de Cocora where visitors can walk amongst forests of the world's tallest palm tree and the national tree of Colombia; the wax palm.

For further natural excursions, the expansive Los Nevados National Park provides high mountain peaks, topped with snow; the perfect habitat for the elusive but majestic Andean Condor.

For the family, Quindio is the perfect get-away. Safe and relaxed amidst the lush greeness of the surrounding mountains. Activities that families will enjoy emmersing themselves in include the National Coffee Farm that offers theme-park rides and tours, the Panaca animal petting farm and the "Mariposario" or Butterfly Park.
