The town of Anapoima was founded on August 10, 1627. At that time, indigenous people lived there and built huts, ranches, straw and guadua houses, on the side of the main road. Over time, this municipality became a temporary home for travelers going south. Later, when the Spaniards arrived, the municipality acquired a better infrastructure, economic, political, and cultural development, which in turn brought more tourists. Over the years, thanks to the construction of paved roads and better access, a transportation system was completed. Similarly, the cultivation and production of cane sugar increased in the sector, with a yield of up to 1,500 tons in a period of five months.
