Description activity Cordoba tour
CORDOBA Fifteen minutes drive to the south over rather steep terrain and narrow road is a distinctly more modest town, pinned to the slope of the foothills is Cordoba (no attempt was ever made to create a level spot in the entire village). Like Pijao, Cordoba was once a guerilla stronghold, and is now simply noted for its quietude and bliss. Several excellent cafes, and serve up high quality beverage from home grown coffee fields. It is from this town that a jeep can carry you up to the Rio Verde waterfalls. <br> BARCELONA/RIO VERDE Barcelona and Rio Verde are twin towns, both small but renowned collectively as a gastronomic destination of Quindío. These modest villages are the best locations to become familiar with the large variety of “platos típicos” or traditional foods of the region. Lining the banks of the rapidly flowing “Rio Verde” river (and therefore without the stunning high point vistas of the other towns), are at least 15 small restaurants and taverns. Here you can challenge your palate and discover an endless number of flavors and most of the foods and combinations that comprise Colombian cuisine. Here also is featured a most delicious alcoholic beverage called “kumis”. Before we tell you what it is, you must try it first (fermented milk). Most agreeable.
