Let’s be frank. Nobody knows about Paicol. It’s why we consider it as an excellent alternative for travelers who want to add an unknown place to their Colombia itinerary.
Located 40 min away from Neiva, Paicol is a tiny colonial town – only 7 streets – built in 1701. Also known as la Puerta del Viento – the Door of the Wind, Paicol is a quiet and safe place where everyone knows everyone. For the evening, locals meet in the main square. They sit on the same bench or share a coffee around the corner.
Paicol is mainly famous for Caja de Agua, a cave that you can explore with Naventura, an excellent local travel company. With them, organize your daily activities like rafting, biking, and rappelling through the lovely landscapes in the area.
