Filandia is Salento’s little sister. For me, it’s a much better option than Salento (today too touristic) if you want to enjoy a colorful and authentic colonial village in the coffee region. Although it’s very popular with Colombians on weekends, it keeps all its charm and atmosphere. During the week, this destination is quiet and restful.
You can reach Filandia from Pereira or Armenia by taking a bus of about an hour. It’s quite simple. For those who absolutely want to visit Valle De Cocora don’t panic! From Filandia, public jeeps leave every day, at regular hours, to take visitors to Salento/Valle de Cocora. It takes about 45 minutes to get there.
Bus every hour from 7 am to 7 pm from the terminal | Expresó Alcalá | 1 hour
From Armenia to Filandia:
Bus every 20 min | 1 hour
Where's the terminal?
There is no terminal as such in Filandia. Buses can be taken from Carrera 5 between Calle 5 and 6, in front of the “Centro De Interpretacion: Bejuco Al Canasto”.
You will arrive practically in the main square of Filandia.
