Some traveler complained about our location, “too far” away from the center (850 meters to the main square) . In any case, If your luggage is heavy , better take a taxi ..(5000 pesos)

A taxi takes less than 5 minutes ,-we are in the neighborhood "La Bañadera", about 150m along the dirt road to the military base(on the road to Arcoiris or hostal Renacer, 2 other options to stay)

If you want to walk, leave the bus station  on the side of plaza Mayor..
Cross the plaza on the side with the church, and continue straight ahead on to " calle caliente", passing Ricaurte Park on your right..Continue straight on to the poved road(with a park on the left and houses on the right)

You will arrive at a bridge - Cross it , and take the dirt road to the right (there is a sign that says Arcoiris)....That road is called" carrera 10" or " via a la Colorada", continue along this road for 150m, and Casa Viena will be on the right hand side - All together 15 minuits...
