Outdoor Activity
Take some time away from the hustle and bustle of the city by visiting Parque Ecologico La Periquera, nature reserve featuring a lush forest and a number of picturesque waterfalls. Bring your camera if you wish to snap images of the pristine cascades, and if you're feeling adventurous, try ziplining or bungee jumping. Due to the reserve's high altitude, many visitors find themselves drinking more water than usual--stock up on beverages before you arrive.
