Salamina is a small colonial village full of charm. Hidden in the Andean mountains, it is located 1 hour north of Manizales. Most travelers do not know this place. You will, therefore, live a truly authentic experience if you add this destination to your itinerary in Colombia. Besides its colorful facades and sculpted balconies, Salamina is the only access to San Felix and the “Valle de Samaria.”
But what is the “Valle de Samaria”?
It is a valley where the most towering wax palm trees in the world grow. And, unlike the “Valle de Cocora” of Salento, you can still see some of them in their natural state, that is to say, in the middle of the forest.
