Combining the visit of the Juan Curí Waterfalls and Barichara you will get to know the natural and cultural highlights of Santander in the shortest time possible. After a 3-hour ride from Bucaramanga through the Chicamocha Canyon to the 250-meter high Juan Curí Waterfalls you will have to hike for 25 minutes through the tropical rainforest to get to the swimming spots of the waterfalls. An optional activity for about 80,000 COP would be rappelling down a 50-meter part of the waterfall.
Before lunch the tour continues to Barichara where you will see the perfectly-conserved colonial streets of Colombia´s most beautiful town. For more information about the places check out the day trips Juan Curí Waterfalls and Barichara.
