We headed to the main square in town and jumped in a "collectivo" taxi jeep, that costs around 3500 pesos per person to the Cocora Valley. We jumped out of the car after about 30 minutes and started out on the valley loop trail.
The trail started following straight along a valley floor between fields of fat grazing cows, before zig zagging through thick lush rainforest and crossing over several streams via some cool, rickety suspension bridges. The trail began to wind uphill until eventually popping out above the thick rainforest towards the top of the valley.
Here we ate our tasty packed lunch we had bought from the wonderful people at "Brunch" cafe in town that morning (which included delicious chicken salad rolls and peanut butter brownies), and basically slothed around in the sun taking in the scenery.
