Yotoco - Eco-Tour Cali - Colombia

Some 18 kilometers (11 mi) from Buga and 56 kilometers (34.8 mi) from Cali, the natural reserve of Yotoco covers 560 hectares (1,384 ac) and its altitude oscillates between 1,200 and 1,600 meters (3,937-5,249 ft) above sea level.

The town of Yotoco itself was founded in 1622 by Captain Diego Rengifo Salazar who took full advantage of the Yotoco settlement already in place. What you find today is a small town with some colonial buildings of interest, but the range of flora and fauna in the area is more fascinating.

All the flora that covers the eastern edge of the Andean cordillera is represented here. Birdwatching is also possible. Aside from fishing in the Escondite and Picapiedra rivers, you can also bathe in the natural pools of the Iso Chorros river.
