Beautiful. We loved our guide. We opted for a Spanish-speaking guide in order to practice our Spanish and it went great. The bus ride is bumpy and dusty, but worth an excursion out of the city.

Do try to go to Miraflor! We loved it. Plenty of opportunities for a homestay with a rural campesino family. We booked through Treehuggers. Very easy. You go up on a local bus, which is also all part of the experience.
