This is a modern town compared to colonial Trinidad also know as “la perla do sur” (the pearl of the south).  At about one and a half hours drive there is El Nicho, a series of natural waterfalls and pools in the middle of the wilderness. Stunning! I got there on a shared taxi with Monica, a chica from Mexico I met in Trinidad who is also traveling on her own. We left as it was starting to rain. On the way back we drove past a santeria house party and we decide to go and check. We found a very welcoming atmosphere but we didn’t stay long. Unfortunately we are now too paranoid and disillusioned by past experience with scammers to trust friendly approaches from anyone, even if genuine.
