Colombian Paisa Culture

The Paisa people originate from the Andean region of Colombia, particularly in the departments of Antioquia, Caldas, Risaralda, and Quindío. Descended from Basque settlers from Spain, their culture has evolved with a blend of indigenous, Spanish, and African influences. Known for their entrepreneurial spirit and resilience, Paisas have played a crucial role in Colombia’s development, especially in coffee cultivation. Visitors can expect to see picturesque coffee plantations, colonial towns, vibrant festivals, and the iconic chiva buses and cowboys that define rural Paisa life. This rich heritage makes the Paisa culture a unique and integral part of Colombia’s national identity.



The answer is a resounding YES. Colombia is exactly the opposite of what Netflix Narcos series portrays. People have to realize that Pablo Escobar was killed three decades ago. We've led hundreds of tours around the country and have never had any problems with security. 

Anthony Bourdain summed it up perfectly:

"If you want to find bad people in Colombia, you can surely find them, as you could in New York or Los Angeles. But nowhere have my crew and I been treated better or with more kindness and generosity. I'd bring my family on vacation there in a heartbeat. And hope to soon. As I said before: Colombians are proud. Let them show you what they are proud of."


What to Expect:​


Our routes are made for intermediate riders.

The mild off-road sections are simply unpaved roads where cars can easily drive.

Rides are at a relaxed pace and our guides are very patient with everyone.

We calculate 5 hours of actual driving time per day but with stops for pictures, breaks and lunch, each day is a full 8 hours of being out and about.

There is always plenty of time to explore the towns and have a nice relaxing meal after we arrive. 

My wife and I recently returned from a trip to Colombia. This was our first time traveling to South America, and after learning about Colombia Motorcycle Adventures through a podcast (Adventure Rider Radio), I thought that the 7 - Day Perfect Loop Coffee Region Tour sounded like a great way to introduce ourselves to motorcycle travel in Colombia. In every way, Jeff and his staff met or exceeded our expectations. Jeff was gracious, accommodating, easy to work with, and helpful. Our guides, Edic and Daniel, were wonderful. The route was beautiful, often challenging (road and traffic conditions, weather, etc...) but never boring. Our bike, a Honda XRE 300, was in perfect condition. We rode two-up on this little bike, and although it would have been nice to have a bit more power at times, it was perfectly adequate and very easy to ride. All in all, our experience was stellar. If you are considering a trip to Colombia and want to include motorcycles in your adventure - contact Jeff today. You will not be disappointed.
