Filandia: Colombia’s Most Colorful Town?

Filandia: Colombia’s Most Colorful Town?

After leaving Bogota, our first base in the Andean region of west-central Colombia was the little town of Filandia (population 7,000), a prettier and more authentic alternative to the backpacker hotspot of Salento nearby. Filandia has plenty of shops and restaurants and small hotels, mainly to serve the coffee and cattle farmers in the surrounding countryside who come into town by jeep or on horseback to shop and socialize. Filandia’s 7,000 residents seem to be in a competition to paint their balconied townhouses in the brightest possible colors, making this a beautiful place to stroll and take pictures.
