You will have the chance to bathe in these refreshing, natural pools, see the scalding hot origins of the thermal baths, take ecological walks around the area to spot colorful, native birds such as a yellow and black hummingbird and/or completely relax in a natural sauna.

In the afternoon we will depart from this inspirational environment and start our trip to the city of Pereira. On the way we will stop at a small restaurant where you will have the opportunity to try a delicious sausage from where the longest sausage was made in 2010 (Guinness Book Record).
