Visit the town's vibrant main square and perhaps pick up some souvenirs at one of the many surrounding craft stands. Afterward, enjoy a visit to the breathtaking and aptly-named 7 Color Hill.

Zakupiony zestaw wycieczek okazał się super wyborem. Każda z wycieczek przerosła nasze oczekiwania. Trzeba przyznać że kolejne 4 dni były wypełnione od 7 do 19-21. Odległości do poszczególnych atrakcji są duże i długo się jedzie. Wszyscy piloci byli super: dziękujemy Fernando, Ana i Walter. Wasze informacje po angielsku były jasne i zrozumiałe. Samochody są nowe, choć trzeba przyznać że z przodu podróżuje się wygodniej. Postoje na atrakcje i przerwy techniczne, bez problemu. Wybór takiej formy zwiedzania to według mnie najlepsza możliwość obcowania z okolicznymi cudami natury. Jesteś odebrany z hotelu i odwieziony, interesuje mnie tylko podziwianie okolicy i kultury. Polecam aktywnym turystom.
