I plan on traveling from Pereira to Salento around 6:30pm towards my hostel. I called them because they offer a private driver service and I was told to use it would cost ~$45 USD. This seems absurdly expensive and I feel like I am being exploited since apparently the buses do not travel that late to Salento. Is there another way to reach Salento from Pereira at that hour?
I'm going to Pereira, Colombia for a couple of weeks with my boyfriend and am dying to go out and hike or see some ruins. Should we try to do a day trip to Valle de Cocora, or should we try to find somewhere to stay the night and make a couple of days out of it? Any idea as to what it might cost us to stay a night?
And I'm assuming we're going to have to take a bus from Pereira to Salento, and then a jeep to Cocora? Any advice whatsoever would be greatly appreciated :-)
