We begin with the transfer to the meeting point in Minca where we will meet with the rest of the group to meet those who will be guiding us during this tour.
From this point we will move to a cozy coffee farm where we will know the history of this beverage and the artisanal process
made from the collected plant to the cup of coffee. We will have the opportunity to taste it and sweeten it naturally with sugar cane honey.
At the end we will make a walk of about 40 minutes with our new adventure friend who will guide us to the Arimaca waterfall, to take a bath in the river. Already on the site we can apply a clay mask and enjoy the charm and refreshing waters of Arimaca.
From there we will start the hike until we reach our host's house, where we are located for lunch, they receive us with natural fruit juice and typical gourmet lunch.
The rest of the afternoon, our host will show us his bamboo or guadua house, where we will have a talk about the biodiversity and cultures of Colombia and bamboo constructions in the country.
