  • Colina del Sol is a coffee finca settled on top of a hill overlooking Chinchiná on one side and the mountains on an other. It's either a half hour climb uphill or an expensive taxiride. The friendly owner will show you around on his finca for a small fee. Contact him first before setting off (Carlos/Mathilde, Carrera 8 No.8-63, 300-362-9578 / 850 4885, email colinadelsol@hotmail.com). There is not always somebody there.
  • Some of the smaller coffee factories will give you a short tour if you show interest.
