Published Jan 23, 2018

Salento has been around since the Colonial period, and today is one of Columbia’s most popular tourist destinations. It’s known for its unique architecture (called ‘bahareque’) and its proximity to Cocora Valley and Los Nevados National Natural Park. The town itself is colorful and vibrant, and the locals like to play an interesting sport called Tejo; one of the rules of this game is that you have to play while drinking beer. It’s also mostly a farming community, so you’d be likely to see some dairy farms and coffee plantations, which you can visit and tour. These 10 Airbnb vacation rentals in Salento should help you start on your journey to finding great accommodations in town. Keep reading!

1. A home on a hill (from USD 185)

The house is situated just outside the center of the village, near a historical building called Mirador De Salento, and a recreational area called Recreaciones Salento.
