  • Paipa and around

    2 to 4-day trip

    Paipa is a charming town famous for its thermal baths, scenic lake, and delectable cheese. Its strategic location also offers easy accessibility for day trips to nearby colonial villages (Iza, Tibasosa, Nobsa, Sogamoso, Firavitoba)  and the renowned Tota Lake. You’ll also learn about the exciting history of Boyacá (a key role in the independence of Colombia).  Carlos offers a range of packages, and a 2-night stay gives you enough time to relish in the town’s many delights.

  • Villa de Leyva and around

    2 to 3-day trip

    You have probably heard of Villa de Leyva, one of Colombia’s most beautiful colonial villages. Thanks to Carlos, you can combine your stay with famous tourist sites such as the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira or Raquira. Once in Villa de Leyva, you can decide to add several exciting experiences (a wine tour, hikes, museums, …). A 2-night stay is ideal.
