Caffeine addicts, it's time to head straight to the source! Armenia is a small city right in the middle of Colombia's coffee region. To visit the area's farms and experience the hospitality of the Paisa region, rent a car in Armenia.
Armenia flights touch down at El Edén International Airport, where you can pick up your Armenia car rental and then make the half hour drive into the city center to start exploring. Since a devastating earthquake destroyed many of the city's historical sites in 1999, Armenia has been seen by many as just a stopover town. However, it's more than just a gateway to the coffee triangle. The Museo del Oro Qiumbaya is one of Colombia's finest museums -- a tribute to the region's historical inhabitants, with stunning examples of their gold work and pottery housed in a building worth visiting for its architecture alone. Botanists will be fascinated by the variety of ferns, orchids, and palms at the Jardín Botánico del Quindío, but the gardens' biggest draw card is the Mariposario. Two thousand species of butterflies fill this 650-square-meter butterfly house, whose design mimics the shape of its inhabitants.
Drive 11 kilometers outside Armenia, and you're at the National Coffee Park, where you can discover how coffee gets from the tree to your cup. Alternatively, book a to tour Recuca, a working finca (coffee plantation). If you choose to book a car rental in Armenia be sure to make a side trip is the colonial town of Salento, 35 minutes northeast of Armenia. Stroll the streets and take in the Paisa architecture and then venture into the striking Valle de Cocora to see the rare Quindío wax palms.
