  • They have organized very well. Lake El Lago to the swamp are 5 minutes, there are good to eat, buy crafts and desserts. I recommend listening to the story about the battle in the swamp and take the picture with characters such as Simón Bolívar. Charming plan for children and adults.

Where to stay in Paipa

In the hillside town center sit the main accommodations in Paipa, with hotels mid-range to luxury dotted throughout the attractive knot of main and side streets. Down the hill and by the lake, a few hotels with larger grounds boast extensive views of the lake and a range of facilities. In the surrounding rural areas, a nice selection of spas and resort-style hotels provide relaxing experiences and themed rooms. To really dive into the natural charm of the region, look to stay at one of the campsites that sit by the main regional roads cutting through the landscape.
