Our Santiago Hiking Trip was amazing! Our guide Admilson Garcia knows the region very well and pretty much everybody who lives there :) We went by minivan to the foot of the mountain and then hiked up, took really great pictures at different spots which Admilson showed us and had a little picnic on the top of the mountain.
