With a strong cultural background and unlimited getaway options, there are many outdoor and indoor locations to visit.
Salento, Colombia is located west of Bogota, approximately 300km via the Variante Ibague-Armenia Road. 45 Kilometers (27.9 miles) from Pereira, Risaralda, Colombia.
Viterbo, Caldas is a relatively warm small town in Colombia. Its small size and about 14,000 inhabitants make it a peaceful and ideal location to just take a ride and relax for a 1-3 days on the available hotels located in the plaza.
I personally visit Viterbo frequently because I have a lot of family there. I’ve been going ever since I was a little girl. I’m familiar with many families there because throughout the years people tend to know their bloodline and who’s who… Sounds strange if you’re not from this culture; however, I’m telling you, this place is very welcoming. The road to this small town allows you to travel to other exciting locations including Cali, Manizales, and Medellin. Although Cali is quite far from Viterbo.
