  • Income is worth $ 16 thousand pesos, you climb on the chair lifts (which should not allow them to young children but if they do), you spend above the cloud forest, it is beautiful. After going to see hummingbirds, stand very close to you, it is beautiful. Then visits the bonsai, the butterfly, and low walking through the forest is full of orchids. There are venaditos, sheep and you can see a beautiful construction in guadua Simón Vélez. All very nice, is not necessary to stay in the hotel to take this tour. Super recommended.

  • Unmissable attraction in Manizales, Colombia. Place of preservation of nature that delights in a variety of ways. Access is quiet and can be done by taxi (very fair).
