When to Go

The rich, fertile land of the Zona Cafetera is 1,000 meters (3,281 ft) above sea level, so the climate in this region is almost always cool or cold, especially in the mountains. The rainy seasons of March to May and September to November can be downright depressing, sometimes with pounding rain all day. The drier seasons are quite temperate and tend to favor warmer temperatures.

The feria (fair) in Manizales is one of the largest festivals in Colombia and always draws a crowd of locals and tourists alike. Salento’s population seems to double every weekend, as food tents and artisan stalls pop up on the main square. In January, Salento also has a very popular, raucous celebration in remembrance of the town’s founding.
