About Armenia

This mid-sized city, only a short hop from Bogota, is a centre of the country’s coffee industry. Founded by Jesús María Ocampo in 1889, the community grew through trade and now reaches to the foothills of the highest peaks in the country. These peaks sit amongst the Los Nevados national park, a spectacular countryside escape that houses the beautiful Cocora valley. The best places to stay in Armenia offer a great base whether you're here for a city break or to explore the surrounding region and the coffee culture.

The temperature in Armenia stays a pretty consistent thirty degrees year round. To miss the rain though, aim to visit from January to February or June to August.

What not to miss:

  • Museo del Oro Quimbaya - Request a free guide to take you around a spectacular hoard of ancient gold.

  • Plaza de Bolivar - Visit this bustling and friendly square for a spot of shopping, a bit to eat or something to drink.

  • Parque de los Fundadores - A great place for some relaxation. This clean and green park offers welcome relief from the surrounding city life.
