Great Day Tour, amazing sights and relaxing hot springs
Sep. 2019
This was a great tour. It seemed a little expensive when I booked, but I didn't realise it was a private tour just for me! So then it made good sense.

Here's the breakdown:
1. I was picked up near my accommodation and then we drove straight to a cool restaurant with a great view of the Andes for the included breakfast
2. After some more very scenic driving we arrived at "Parque Nacional Natural Los Nevados" after which there was a brief explanation about the park and the nature. We then had a specialised guide join us, and made the very short drive up to...
3. The volcano Nevado del Ruiz and surrounding areas. The day was clear and it was pretty amazing. Kind of what you'd imagine being on the surface of the moon could be like - there is actually a part of the park called the lunar valleys ("Valles Lunares"). We took some cool photos here and learned more about the park and volcano... it was smoking the whole time. NOTE since 2010 you can't actually go up past a certain point, but you can still see everything from just below, and it's cool
4. We drove back to the same restaurant we had breakfast in for the included lunch
5. We drove to the hot springs. The actual location was "Termales el Otono." It is a nice kind or resort built around man made pools which channel the natural hot spring water. Apparently wealthy Colombians often stay here. When we arrived it was a Tuesday, and there was not a single other person there bar the staff, so that was cool. It also has beautiful views up to the surrounding jungly mountains - nice to take in while you're soaking up the mineral filled water

Summary: A great tour, lots included, and amongst many other highlights, great for photos like you're on the moon

Bring:
- Sunscreen
- Sunglasses
- Bathing suits AND towels (otherwise the resort will charge around COP10,000 to use them)
- COP 28,000 cash for the park fee (not included)

Shoutouts:
- Valentina - great English speaking tour guide. Thanks again!
- Jessica - The very friendly and informative Park guide
