Otu is located approximately 170 miles (274 kilometers) from Bogota, the capital of Colombia, and about 80 miles (129 kilometers) from Medellin.
For a genuine Andino vacation, be sure to look further than just Otu and discover the scenic and cultural treasures that the region offers. El Bagre, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the south, and Puerto Berrio, 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the northwest of Otu are also worth checking out.
If you're keen on soaking up some of the local culture, head to Andino's art galleries, theaters and art museums. For a budget outdoors activity that will interest the entire family, be sure to stop by the region's fascinating gardens.
When the sun is shining, take the time to explore the region's beautiful waterways. Swimming and scuba diving are both popular ways to get active here. A fun way to enjoy the wild landscapes in Andino is to sign up for a zip-lining or mountain biking adventure.
Local menus are one of the keys to getting to know about an area. So head to some of Andino's eating establishments. Two of the region's best-loved ingredients are rice and avocado. For a true taste of Andino enjoy tomales tolimenses or lechona (roast pig with rice).
As your holiday here winds to a close, you'll be sure to bid Otu a sad "Adiós"
