  • Landscapes, architecture, its streets and people, dazzle in this small corner of Nariño. You can post some photos of my visit to this place in my social network, the reaction of friends and family was that if it was in some city in Europe! It is worth visiting, and do not go there without having tasted the famous "boiling" a cocktail delight. It is a tourist must visit place if you're in the grass or the surrounding area.

  • Best place to visit in Pasto. There is a building typical of the region that makes the place just magic. The people are super friendly and attentive, but a landscape unique in Latin America. Plenty of restaurants and eating options, in addition to several shops with local handicrafts quite interesting.

  • If you are going to grass, I recommend you to visit the Laguna de la Cocha. The climate is colder than grass, sunrise to 4 c and reach 16 c at noon, so you take a jacket, gloves, hat and scarf, can also buy them at craft shops that are here, very economical prices. Typical lunch is a delicious fish, trout, the price is $12,000 on average. You can also take "Boiled" is a drink hot with fruit and sugarcane liquor. Travel by boat around the Central magnificent of the lagoon has several stops, according to the number of stops you want travel costs between COP$ 40,000 and $150,000. Also you can stay in hotels in the lagoon, there is a variety of prices.
