Buenavista is another lovely colonial town located 1 h away from Armenia. Nestled on the top of a hill, there is a 360-degrees view of the valley and the Andean mountains. It’s tiny, colorful, and authentic. One of my favorite moments in Colombia was to sit on the main square with a tasty cup of coffee and contemplate the sceneries.

Besides, there are some cool stuff to do in Buenavista.

First, there is the only paragliding center in the coffee region. It’s safe, easy, and the experience is quite amazing. Second, it’s the place to be if you want to learn more about coffee. Indeed, it’s the departure tour for the famous Wake-up tour in Pijao – another cute colonial town.
