San Cipriano natural reserve is a great adventure, brujitas are definitely the thing to go and see, they might seem little bit sketchy but they work! haha so if your feeling like doing something different just give it a try. the river is pretty clean...More

My extended family visited San Cipriano today. We've rented buses for outings before, so I was laissez faire with the details of the trip. There were 40 of us ranging from a year old to over 80 years old. The poor rating is due to...More

From Cali Terminal we took a bus direction Buenaventura but jumped off in Cordoba (after about 2h15min). Bus ticket was 23'000cop. There some guys will bring you to the Brujitas (transportation on rails). This transportation takes about 15-20 minutes and is the highlight of the...More

Our favourite spot is the charcos los sábalos, 12m deep and you can see the bottom. The water is a gorgeous dark green and I have seen turtles, ducks and once a big snake by the bush. I am not too sure about tours, we...More

We booked this tour ahead, so the transport was taking care of. It's a nice day in nature and good fun to go tubing at the river, but don't expect a adrenaline kick out of it, the stream is not very strong. It;s just good...More

Maybe it's the 3 month travel weariness, but i was quite disappointed with the overall tour. Technically there was nothing wrong with it, but just underwhelming. We booked the tour through our hostel (el viajero). The bus leaves at 5 30am, and it takes 2.5...More
