Tour itinerary

We will start this tour by visiting the picturesque town of Toconao, located 38 km south of San Pedro. There you will have the chance to exchange culture with the local people, buy handicrafts and take pictures with the llamas.

The tour will then take us on a walk through the gardens of Toconao and the Jere Valley. Two green places that make the town of Toconao a fruit and wine area.
