Near Popayán

Near Popayán are a number of interesting villages, like Silvia and its weekly indigenous market. Several circuitos, or tour routes, allow you to visit these pueblos on horseback or hiking. To the east is Parque Nacional Puracé with good trekking and climbing. Coconuco, on the south edge of the park, has two hot springs--which can be made as a day trip from Popayán. Along the same road is Paletará which has a trout fishing tournament every October.
