The Local Means of Transport Rout is the tour for those who are looking to live new experiences and learn about the culture, and customs of the coffee region.
We will go by Jeep Willys to the start point, outside of Pereira. You will ride through coffee cultivations in the Andes Mountains and descend to one of the most important rivers in Colombia – the Cauca River. You will then embark the “Brujita” – a unique transportation system that has a wooden platform and ball bearings that displace over the rails of the antique train track – an emotion-filled journey. Next, take another native Colombian transportation system called “Garrucha” that is a basket made of metal and wood that hangs from steel cables which allows you to cross the Cauca River to reach the banks of a town named Belalcazar, Caldas. Rest and walk approximately 30 minutes to a series of waterfalls, the ideal place to swim in cool, pristine waters.
