    Daytrip to Filandia, the little sister of Salento with less tourists and a mirador (view point in Spanish) to overlook the surrounding country.
    The public transportation is via jeeps, called Willy‘s, with as many people as possible, even the people have to stand in the back outside on a step.Read more

    Filandia, Colombia

    February 14, 2017 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Filandia is a small town on the same coffee region as Salento. Although it's only a 20 minute drive away there are no direct buses from Salento and thus you must catch a bus towards Armenia get dropped off in the middle of the highway In front of a flower shop and then catch a bus to Finlandia.

    For this reason it's not as popular with tourists and relatively more of a secret. This is a good thong because in my opinion it was 10 times more beautiful than Salento. More colorful, leas tourists and instead of hostels, souvenir shops, and restaurants you have actual stores and places the locals use and go to.

    I spent the day wandering around with my fellow midwesterner and had lunch with a view overlooking the entire region.

    The coffee there was good, I got to take plenty of good pictures and didn't feel one bit over run by tourists.

    Filandia you stole my heart, please stay non-touristy-ish.
