HOW TO GET?
- You can get there from Cali, it takes 4:30 h, you go south on the road to Popayán, there is a toll of $10,000 COP approx. The roadtrip I did from Cali and what I recommend is:
Arrive in Popayán, and tour the historic center, from there go to eat at the Mora Castilla restaurant empanadas and pipián tamales and salpicón payanes. Then go to the Isnos road to the Calaguala Waterfall , this journey is 1 hour from Popayán, this is a super cute waterfall located along the entire road that is worth going to see, from there return and go down the same road to the Agua Tibia hot springs in Coconuco, a super nice place where you can enjoy different hot springs, in these if you can get into unlike the hot springs that are inside the park, inside there is a restaurant, bathrooms and other spaces. The price is $45,000 COP per person. That night sleep in Coconuco or you can also go to Puracé and sleep there. The next day, get up early to the entrance to the PNN Puracé that is in the Cabildo Puracé, take the route of the messenger of the sun that ends at approximately 4 pm and from there return to Cali again.
- From Popayán it takes 1:30 h by road Popayán - La Plata until the entrance to the PNN Puracé which is in the Cabildo Puracé. There are no tolls on this route.
