  • Unable to come up and see the volcano Poes the fog, we decided to go to the falls of la Paz. The entrance is dear, $40, but when you see all the infrastructure, well-maintained paths it is justified. We see birds we saw during our trip but not so close. As toucans. There's the wonderful den of butterflies of all colors that fly beside you. Everything is so well designed and spacious. The falls are also impressive. We can spend hours walking and then take a drink or a meal in the scattered restaurants. In any case we were pleasantly surprised, and we had a good time.
