Panaca – Must visit!
If the answer is “yes” or “no”, it doesn’t matter. You should still visit Panaca. At first I wasn’t very excited about going and visiting the farm with domestic animals.
When we got there, I completely changed my mind. There was anything you can imagine!
The entrance costs between $45,000 and $65,000, add $28,000 to do the canopy tour and about $15,000 for lunch and coffee and that will get you a complete day with beautiful animals on a beautiful farm.
You can learn how to get your own milk from the cow, feed pigs from a bottle, make panela and all you would like to know about the culture and traditions of the region.
If you get time and money, definitely do the canopy tour as it’s the largest in Colombia and you can see the whole park from upside down.
HOW TO GET HERE: By bus from the house, take a bus to the terminal, then to Qundio plaza and from there to Panaca. Leaves every 30min.
WHEN TO GO: The park opens at 9am and you should get there before it opens as it’s a tight schedule to visit every sight.
