The Quindío region of Colombia -- the Zona Cafetera - is the heartland of the country's coffee growing industry. If you can speak some Spanish, try the Quindío Tourism Authority website (www.turismoquindio.com) which lists a number of fincas, traditional country houses/farms that are located on working coffee plantations. Some are quite basic, while others feature swimming pools and antique furniture. Prices are quite low, starting at less than $20 per person per night and will often include breakfast, unlimited fresh coffee and a tour of the coffee plantation. The region is also home to a coffee theme park - Parque Nacional del Café (www.parquenacionaldelcafe.com) which features a coffee process museum, coffee-based food stands and a plaza highlighting traditional Colombian architecture.
