During my trip through Colombia’s coffee region, it was recommended to me by several fellow travelers that I visit Salento, a well-preserved pueblo which serves as the jumping off point for day trips to the Valle de Cocora.

In Salento, as with most pueblos, daily life unfolds in the main square every day and night.
