Welcome to Catamayo Area
About 15km west of Catamayo, a well-paved road passes through the village of San Pedro de la Bendita, which is the turnoff to the village of El Cisne, 22km to the north and home to the famous Virgen del Cisne.
About 40km south of Catamayo, on the southernmost of two roads to Macará, Gonzanamá is noted for its weavers and for the production of alforjas (saddlebags). The route passes the villages of Cariamanga and Sozoranga before ending in Macará at the border. Accommodation en route is of the ultra-basic variety.
