Cocorná: Paradise in the Clouds
A small town hidden beneath the heavy cloud of the mountain forests, steeped by cascading waterfalls and dense vegetation, Cocorná is a wonder to behold.
Known for its many rivers and and crystal clear charcos (natural pools), in addition to its bountiful agricultural produce, Cocorná has been popular vacation destination for Colombians since the 1980s. During the time of conflict this area became a red zone, and in recent years has opened up once more to visitors.
Cocorná is still a new name for many, making it an ideal place to enjoy a relaxed Colombian experience. Horses, donkeys, and brightly-colored shiva buses are common forms of transport, while delicious fruit trees abound. Visit a trapiche (sugar cane plantation) and stop for a coffee in town, or swim in one of the many natural springs and bask in the sun on the granite boulders. Keep an eye out for monkeys, colorful butterflies, and exotic birds.
Located 69 km outside of Medellín on the Medellín-Bogotá highway, with buses leaving hourly from the city, Cocorná is remote yet accessible. Our Freak’n Creek’n office is one-of-a-kind, perched on the mountainside with an exhilarating vista of the Cocorná valley and the 400 m El Venus waterfall. Eco trails lead down from our gourmet restaurant to luxurious private cabins, and the paragliding launch that will send you soaring through the clouds is right at your doorstep.
