  • Beautiful architecture, beautiful churches, museums, cafes and restaurants to taste typical dishes. I recommend empanadas of stale with peppers peanuts and Caffet. It is better to make the visit with a Pastuso who knows the city.

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.
