Marcela Was an amazing guide, so friendly and fun. The hike and drive there were beautiful but I think what surprised me was how good all the included good was. Don’t miss out on this trip! Also, bring a dry set of clothing for after the hike. You can leave them in the car while hiking but it was so nice to put on a dry shirt post hike. Also, shout out to our driver, Omar. He kept us safe on some very narrow roads and played amazing Colombian music too!

I went in mid/late November. Marcela was an excellent guide and the park was fantastic. The views of the Andes are great, the waterfalls are beautiful, and I highly recommend this experience. We started our day with breakfast, then we drove up the mountain and stopped briefly to see the paramo, which was mind-blowing. Then we drove out to the park. The weather was sunny and hot, so the spray from the waterfalls was divine. We had a brief rain shower before lunch which I personally enjoyed.

This was such an amazing tour. I always get worried on group tours that we spend too much time doing things that just waste time. I felt this was straight to the point with facts and places we visited. Our tour guide Marcela was absolutely amazing anf such a sweetheart. I felt like she was a friend I was traveling with she was full of smiles and made our small group feel like a family. I asked her endless questions that she always had a answer for. Highly recommend and Marcela made all the difference. Would love to do more tours with her!
