I was fortunate enough to meet Pablo of Guru talks in the city of Manizales. https:///-find-the-awesome-history-and-culture-of-beautiful-manizales-city It is not easy to find guides in Manizales but I got lucky and found Guru walks and Pablo. Our time together was in January of this year.

Besides doing city tours, Pablo is a geologist and loves nature. He does tours in the surrounding nature around Manizales. For our time together, we visited one of the biggest volcanos in Colombia, Nevada del Ruiz. It is an incredible site and over 14,000 feet in elevation. We stood exactly where the lava flow was in 1985, the last time of its eruption. The lava killed over 25,000 people within 2 hours of its eruption with the lava flowing down the valley. It was beautiful and magnificent to see.

Pablo has climbed 15 volcanos in Colombia. He climbed the Nevada also. There is a climbing route in which you start at 3:00 am, many times in the rain, with ice storms as you get to the top. Needless to say, these are not great conditions, but Pablo is used to it.

After viewing the volcano, we traveled down the mountain and completed a loop. The car ride was beautiful but, on a dirt, and bumpy road.

Pablo does all kinds of nature If this interest you, Pablo is a passionate and excellent guide.

Pablo was a great guide. We met very far from the center, but it was really important! We took the late walk at 4: and it was perfect! We watched a beautiful sunset and he explained very detailed a lot of things.

Thanks Pablo! If I come back, I will take the nature tour for sure!

Excelente tour, estuvo muy pendiente de nosotros y nos explicó todo a detalle. Súper interesante y entretenido. Me encantó que tuviera muy claro y que fuera enfático en que, sobre todo por ser Manizales, las asquerosas corridas de toros no son arte, es una aberración. La gente que piensa así vale la pena.

El tour fue una grandiosa oportunidad para conocer Manizales, por cierto una ciudad con mucha historia, gente muy amable, un clima fabuloso y atractivos turisticos muy interesantes. Muchas gracias a Pablo que fue nuestro guia durante este tour. Un plan recomendado siempre en Manizales y cualquier lugar del mundo :)
