  • A large lagoon. It is of great importance to be the second most large of Colombia. The basic boat ride costs 35. But we went we were tranqui and charged us the following amount of 45 thousand pesos to climb to the lookout. They should care because they are not negotiable prices. The climate is usually cold. It rains frequently. The boats have roof.

  • This place is beautiful! It is very large, the other side is not. If they can stay at a place overlooking the lagoon do not hesitate, bring warm clothing as it is very cold at night. Also is cute for pass a day, touring the area, lunch in the area of the trout and see crafts in the area of port.
