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.

We contemplated doing an overnight trip here but thought the rates were a bit expensive. Day trip was right choice and spent the whole day there hiking. If you're a really keen hiker you could spend more time but most people a day would be...More
