Cocora Valley Wax Palm Trees

Tallest Palms in the World

Enormous, slender trees stretch skyward in this verdant valley. The wax palms, which can grow to up to 200 feet tall, are the tallest type of palm tree in the world, as well as the tallest recorded species of monocot. The Cocora Valley, which at its lowest is still roughly 5,900 feet above sea level, is the main place to find these quirky-looking trees. The Quindío wax palm (Ceroxylon quindiuense) thrives in high-altitude places. It’s also an excellent home for endangered birds like the yellow-eared parrot. With their slim trunks topped by clusters of leaves that resemble cottony tufts of greenery from a distance, the palms look like the whimsical trees in Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax. But sadly, these fantastic trees are in need of their own little Lorax to save them. The wax palms have unfortunately been threatened by habitat loss, overharvesting, and disease.

Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona

Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona is a magical slice of Colombia's Caribbean coast, with stunning stretches of golden sandy beach backed by coconut palms and thick rainforest. Behind it all rise the steep hillsides of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the world's highest coastal mountain range. The park stretches along the coast from the Bahía de Taganga near Santa Marta to the mouth of the Río Piedras, 22mi (35km) east, and covers some 30,000 acres of land and 7000 acres of coral-rich sea.

Salt Cathedral

"Jewel of Modern Architecture"

The tunnel leading to Colombia's most famous church feels more like a byway into the bowels of the earth. It's dark and dank, with a faint smell of sulfur in the air. But after a few hundred yards, the shaft gradually widens to reveal Roman Catholic icons, like the Stations of the Cross and Archangel Gabriel. And they're all carved out of salt. Colombia's Salt Cathedral is located about 600 feet underground, in a former salt mine in Zipaquirá, just outside Bogotá. It's especially busy during Easter, with thousands attending services marking the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ.
