From the Andean foothills and the Colombian Pacific coast rises this territory of conservation and indigenous tradition. Its biggest attribute is biodiversity because it makes Barbacoas a changing and innovative landscape. The beautiful and unique reserves transport you to new cosmologies, understanding other ways of relating and enjoying nature. You will be in harmony with the land like the Awá tribe, among other indigenous communities. These hosts will take you along trails, such as the well-known Sendero del Chapil that, due to its high degree of conservation, protects and shows wildlife such as the 7-colored hummingbird, the parzudakii tanager, the Heliodoxa tijereta, or possible traces of the Spectacled Bear, among other animals such as amphibians and reptiles. There are more than 1786 hectares in conservation, as a source of life, guarded by the Ñambi River and the communities that, through scientific exploration and environmental education, teach us about ancestral traditions, restaurants, and traditional dishes. At the end of the day enjoy a drink of chapil distilled, while the rain exalts this charming place of biogeographic shock.
