Popayan is a city in Colombia in the South Western Department of Cauca.
It is known for having white washed buildings and is normally a pit stop city for travelers going from Ecuador to central Colombia or from Cali / Bogota / Medellin to Ecuador by land.
Popayan is a very safe city and can be enjoyed within just a few days. My trip to Popayan was very peaceful, calming and stress free. I saw older tourists for the first time in Colombia walking around peacefully at night and day and several people had their cameras out and were taking pictures.
I arrived to Popayan from Cali by bus and paid $15000 my ticket. The scenery along the journey was gorgeous and the bus ride took just under 3 hours.
This is a city that can be enjoyed by all styles of travelers; from couple breaks to backpackers (if relaxing, stress-free & inexpensive is what you are looking for!).
