Salento’s colourful buildings and large town square may at first appear to be the same as other colonial towns in Colombia. However, the quiet and isolated nature of Salento has produced a thriving artisanal community, with friendly characters who enjoy sharing their culture with visitors.
With a local guide, you’ll go underneath the town’s skin and have meaningful connections with the local inhabitants, that few visitors take the time to initiate. Spend some time observing life in the town square and sit back in a café to try some of the locally produced coffee. Slipping into the relaxing and sociable vibe of Salento is always a good idea.
