  • I have visited this place since I can remember, its colonial-style church is beautiful, it transmits spirituality everywhere and art in every corner of this very well preserved, and its small museum shows most of this art of time, also the view while we headed to Guápulo is very beautiful especially in sunny days, preferred.

  • All Spanish. Not the best interpretation, but the center area is nice (although I was there in dry season and it wasn't well landscaped).  more »

  • Amazing view of Cumbayá Valley. Comfortable and cool. Bring a jacket or a heavy sweater at night. It's safe and there's always people there. Also, a small café with a cozy atmosphere.
  • Amazing Guapulo's view. I loved this place. There is an excellent coffee where you can enjoy vegan food.
  • Tie your hiking shoes tight, because this trek is a challenge ! But definitely worth the sights. Hidden parks , beautiful scenery, and horses! Take a stroll , won't cost you a dime . ( Unless you take a cab to get there or back ) get some clean air in your lungs .. and wonder .. who lives in those house off in those distant cliffs?!
  • Lovely view. Totally recommended
