Back to the roots

You will discover various sectors of Agua Blanca that will give you an overview of the virgin forests, those transformed by mankind, coffee plantations and pastures      surrounding small typical houses. We will take a path going through the forest to reach the Pozo del Niño, a crystal clear water well formed by the river Quebrada del Niño where you will be able to take a swim. Exuberant forests and the first Andean foothills compose the panorama of the route. You will enjoy the quietness of the place, where the man interacts with nature. On our way back we will meet a family from the Yagrumal and share with them an aromatic coffee listening traditional violin.
