We recommend Cathy if you are looking for an authentic experience in Jericó. We met in Sept 2021.
Jericó is an easily accessible village that you can visit on your own. But if you want to meet the local artisans, follow beautiful trails in the mountains and admire the most impressive views, you will need Cathy.

Visit of Jericó | 7 h
During this visit, you will understand why this village was elected as a historical and cultural heritage village of Colombia by exploring its colorful streets, appreciating its colonial architecture, and acknowledge its religious history. You’ll also meet famous local craftsmen (Carriel, cardamom sweets).
The visit begins with a horseback ride to discover magnificent landscapes in the heart of exotic and lush nature. Afterward, you will have a traditional lunch in one of the best restaurants in town. In the afternoon, you will visit a small local coffee farm, where you will discover the world of coffee from bean to cup.
At 2,250 meters you will find the natural reserve “Las Nubes” (more than 4000 hectares), accessible by old paths used by the indigenous tribes. On the way, you might discover an incredible diversity of fauna and flora: howler monkeys, deer, armadillos, butterflies, birds … This hike in the heart of luxuriant nature will lead you to incredible views of the whole region and the Cauca River.
Take a jeep from Jericó to the mirador of La Soledad and visit the incredible Finca d’Ariel. This colorful house perched among the clouds offers a magnificent view of the Cauca Canyon. An enriching and unique experience of sharing with a local family.
