A brief history about Apulo

Those who initially inhabited this place were the Panches, located mainly in Las Juntas, from the Síquima tribe. They were in charge of receiving the people who crossed the river until they reached the town. Over time, the government realized the importance of this municipality for the crossing of several travelers, so it was essential to build a railway line to facilitate the passage of merchandise and visitors. President Carlos Holguín was the one who inaugurated the Apulo Station in 1889. Subsequently, the first iron bridge was built, and the Hotel Veraniego was the first tourist site, visited by presidents and mayors; this hotel, unfortunately, was burned to ashes years later.
