Ipiales to Las Lajas

Reaching Ipiales we realized we had enough time to visit the renowned Las Lajas Sanctuary outside Ipiales, before crossing the border into Ecuador.  We started negotiating with a taxi.  The driver asked 8K for frontera and 7K for Las Lajas.  For both?  He said it would be 30K because he would have to wait for us at Las Lajas; settled on 25K with him.  On our way to Las Lajas we found many BBQ places roasting whole guinea pigs--it is a delicacy of that region; watching our interest in the BBQ the taxi driver suggested we pack a few guinea pigs for the road. 
We spent almost an hour at Santuario de Las Lajas.
