  • Since then we have visited Puracé, we know because the different rivers descenden in this region. It has unique vegetation, for example, Frallejones plants, completely impressed us.

  • The Park is very organized, is in charge of shelter save indigenous in the region, the cost of entry is exaggerated compared to other natural parks ($40,000 Colombian pesos) should regulate more by the entities of the State. Already in the hiking and climbing the volcano Puracé landscapes are unmatched and the extreme experience, I'll never forget, a height 4,500 meters with all that brings a wasteland, vegetation, climate and extreme conditions, a bit of physical training prior not spare very preferred

  • This Park is beautiful, I advise to go in your own vehicle for the excursions. Also there is a part of the tour that can be walking, waterfalls, hot springs of San Juan. Keep in mind that from 01 June of this year prices for entry changed to two routes, climb the volcano and watching the condor. The cost is foreign $40,000 from Monday to Thursday, weekend $50,000 and for national $20,000 from Monday to Thursday, weekend $40000.
