The town of Acevedo, located in the south of the Huila region and near the border of the Caqueta Department, has 26,000 inhabitants and is the region’s capital. Only 4,500 live in the actual city, most have preferred to settle in the lush and green countryside. Acevedo is home to one of Colombia’s oldest national parks, the Cueva de los Guacharos National Natural Park, which covers more than 9,000 hectares and serves as a refuge for migratory birds.
The landscapes of Acevedo are characterised by their many narrow valleys, where numerous coffee-producing fincas can be found. Las Palmas, located in the small village of La Palma at an altitude of 1,650 metres, is one of these.
