Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have stayed longer in filandia as it is a beautiful city very quiet and with few tourists, but many people will recommend us to spend more time Salento so we booked more days of our trip to Salento.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    salento usually has a very pleasant climate as it is not very hot, but on the day I went to the Alto de la Cruz viewpoint, there was a lot of sun and I didn't take the sunscreen and that's why my skin got sunburn.

  • How was the food?

    La Gran Trucha Restaurante, It has a delicious plate of fried trout with patacón, rice and salad.

  • Packing tips?

    This region has a temperature between 8 and 24 ° C, therefore it is convenient to bring light and warm clothing to wear depending on the weather. Bring comfortable clothes and shoes for the tours, a hat or cap and sun protection.
