Cauca is situated on the Colombian plateau, sitting adjacent to other growing regions Tolima and Huila. Much like many regions in Colombia, safe access to Cauca was greatly affected for many years by the violent disputes between the government and the FARC rebels. In recent years, with growing peace and signed treaties between the parties, greater access to this amazing region has been afforded.
