Overview

In the small and unexplored municipality of Pijao, life passes without noise or eagerness, a characteristic that led it to win the “Slow City” award granted by the Italian Citta Slow movement, making it known as a unique ecotourism destination, with its typical architecture of the towns of the coffee region and its beautiful mountainous landscapes. Likewise, the objective here is to be fully sustainable based on responsible management of natural resources, all within a philosophy of healthy and calm life.

Buenavista is known as the “Mirador del Quindío” due to its magnificent view over the department of Quindío and part of the department of Valle del Cauca. This destination has been the inspiration of poets and writers naming it: “Buenavista one block from Heaven”, “Buenavista land of the landscape”, “Buenavista, Mirador del Quindío”, or simply Buenavista, since there is no better word that defines the essence of this hidden paradise between the mountains of the coffee region.
