Neira is a small and tranquil town with traditional architecture known as “La colonización Antioqueña”, named for the migration from the neighboring Antioquia department.
The current population of the municipality, including the surrounding rural areas is around 30,000. The town is located at 1970 MASL and the average temperature is 18 degrees Celsius year round. The town is 21 km away from Manizales, the capital city of the department of Caldas. The road that connects the two is considered a secondary road though it is in good condition.
Coffee growing is the most important economic activity in the region and provides income for the majority of the population of the municipality.
Raising cattle is very important too, especially in the low and hot lands. Neira is part of the Coffee Landscape World.
