  • We visited Nirvana along with 2 pairs more. For those who want to visit this environment, it must be set with no less than 5 hours, including forced lunch to enjoy the atmosphere. We were served by the proprietor (father), who with the kindness that characterizes him, was commissioned to give us all a Chair in the place and its surroundings. Interesting could be that they offer guided tour as many tourists from all over the world come to this site. The butterfly must be included in the visit, as well as the activities of hiking and enlistment of birds offering. Finally, enjoy a good dish a la carte that pays honor to the gastronomy Valley Cauca.
