Customer Travel Tip: Just go there a couple of days. Nice but not special

Liked: Nice calm historic centre. Many things to do in the vicinity. Shops in old city.

Disliked: Apart from the historic city, Popayan in not the place to be. As in every Colombian city one can go into nature or do excursions.
