This city in the Nariño department is only two hours away from the border with Ecuador. There are some beautiful places to be seen in the area especially “Laguna de la Cocha”, “Laguna Verde” and the Galeras volcano. The town is also famous for its Blanco’s y Negros (Black and White) festival, a carnival involving a lot of face painting and drinking - this is certainly one of Colombia's best festivities.
