QUICK OVERVIEW

As an example, please find our itinerary. One important thing, because we managed to do the first 4 days with a relatively good pace and because the weather let us do so, we managed to spend the morning of day 5 at the Alfredo waterfall. This is normally not included in the tours but it’s on the way, so ask your guide if you can go there, it’s not just a waterfall, it’s an amazing experience.
