Sazagua, Coffee Zone

Sazagua Hotel stands at the heart of one of the country’s most famous coffee-producing areas. In fact, no luxury, tailor-made vacation to Colombia would be complete without a voyage of discovery through this engaging region. With the Sazagua as your base you can take horse rides to picnic amongst the surrounding valleys and hillsides. You can also ride to intriguing places like Salento and Aguas Claras. But here coffee is king, so you’ll naturally have the chance to learn all about its production, and be guided on appreciating the different aromas and flavor by local experts. You can take a trip along Autopista del Café (Coffee Highway) and, if you’re a foodie, you can also learn to cook the regional food that goes with the coffee.
