Day 2


On this day you will go back in time through a hike along Camino Real, an ancient colonial path that served as a commercial link between various pre-colonial indigenous communities. You will get to the charming town of Guane, which seems to live at a different pace, a more slow and ancestral rhythm. Old town houses made from handcrafted materials, cobblestone paths, and an archaeological museum will make you feel in a different time.
