We did this hike in November 2016 as a one-day trip from Popayan. It is very challenging hike, as you actually ascend 1400m in 4 hours! We are not very experienced hikers, that said, it is doable and well worth the effort. If you want...More

I recommend take a car with a local guide and explore this park during the day. It's very very beautiful! Take a lunch box and a hot tea with you. Do not forget a rain jacket and waterproof shoes.

We took the 7 am bus from the bus terminal in Popayan with Sotracauca to the aguas termales de San Juan. The bus ride was very expensive (20000 pesos one way) and took more than 2 hours ( very bad road). When we arrived it...More

We visited the NP Purace, but we decided not to climb the volcano, as it's steep and long hike. Instead, we did the 15km trail from Termales San Juan to condor viewing point. It's probably easier to do it with private transportation, but that option...More

Hello Jeffrey, I can give you a price but tripadvisor frowns upon people doing that. If you want me to answer your question properly, send me a private message and I will reply.
