White City

Popayan vacations hold plenty of appeal for international and domestic visitors, as the city represent one of the most entertaining and culturally enriching urban centers on the continent. Although an earthquake destroyed much of its architecture in the 1980s, Popayan still possesses an impressive, whitewashed colonial look, second only to Cartagena's. Hometown of seventeen Colombian presidents, Popayan hosts many cultural events and has a rich artistic history. Use our Colombia vacation route planner to arrange your visit to Popayan and any other destinations in Colombia that take your fancy.
