  • If not go with tourist guide I recommend first visiting the office of tourism of the municipality, there will give them material so they are oriented and they can take advantage of your visit. People are very friendly, visit churches and museums is mandatory, I loved the Museum House Taminango, for being a rescued House dating back to the colonial era, transports you and approaching what it was like to live then.

  • I recommend to visit the museums of the city... They offer a great history and cultural contribution. San Juan de Pasto has everything a city in expansion should offer to its visitors: good nightspots of entertainment and fun, excellent restaurants and above all the human warmth of its people... I'll be back whenever I can.

Where to stay in Pasto

Just two hours from the border with Ecuador, Pasto represents a stop-off point for traveling business people, so you can bet on having plenty of choices when it comes to accommodations. A few older, more atmospheric hotels sit in the city's historic center, offering rooms with lots of character and various additional facilities. Simpler business-style hotels can be found farther from the center of town, usually close to the main regional highways--these are especially convenient for those wishing to explore the remoter parts of the region.
