Bird watching routes are chosen in the maximum context of abundance and landscape richness, since it is there where the wonderful bird species that interest us are located. The following route starts from cocóra:

The route is made up of a crossing on a path between pastures and the Quindío river bank, where you can observe species of great importance such as the Kingfisher or Ringed Kingfisher, Trogón de antifas or Masked trogon, maize trees, toucans etc. After this section, you enter the misty forest where the crystallinity of the water and the magic of the green are protagonists, so this encounter with nature is marked in the soul and the memory forever. Centennial trees, green of all colors, orchids decorating the sub-canopy or on the side of the road, dragonflies, butterflies, hummingbirds, which are around, like the river with its meandering song, seven suspension bridges must be crossed enjoying it, climbing gradually the sacred mountain that gives way to the snowy park… And suddenly you are at the entrance of a secret world where Cacique Acaime left an enchanted place that they have called the house of the Hummingbirds or Acaime Reserve a protected legacy for the conservation of the fauna and flora of mother earth. There you can see different species of hummingbirds in flowers and drinkers while tasting a delicious chocolate or a panela water with cheese ... And the sighting party of other beautiful species continues back through the mountain to appreciate the imposing beauty of the wax palm in its natural habitat to reach Cocora again.
