Armenia is a laidback town in what is known as the Coffee Region of Colombia. An excellent stopover choice while travelling through the Zona Cafetera, this regional capital city boasts of botanical gardens and several museums. Visit the Parque de la Vida located right in the heart of town, an urban green lung with preserved forested areas, lakes and a stream. Learn all about Colombia’s ancient Quimbaya culture at the Museo del Oro Quimbaya, which displays spectacular gold artefacts and collection of ceramics. Sample the scrumptious, traditional fare of hearty steaks and sancocho (soup or stew), fresh seafood, and a delicious vuelve a la vida or fish soup believed to be a secret aphrodisiac!
