Although there is nice hiking on the mountain, and beautiful views, the main attraction is likely the birding. There are many 'backpackers', likely because everything is so affordable, but the thing that makes this so unique is the bird variety and abundance. However, to really...More

A lot to do: you can hike to miradors, go to see coffee plantation, or indiginous people life, many excursions to be taken around, or just relax and enjoy the view and peaceful atmosphere of this place

Kind of a hippy backpacker town. There is a coffee farm and a micro brewery outside of town. The roads are a little rough but worth the trip. Very quaint shops & restaurants in the tint town.

A 1 week trek to Lost City is a must. Try to go during a full moon so you can see where your going at camp.
