Colombia Bound

South America


So our Colombia trip is now a go in December. Here’s the general itinerary:

  • Start in Bogota, with visits to Villa de Leyva and the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá, an underground Roman Catholic church built within the tunnels of a salt mine.
  • Then up to Santa Marta and Taganga, our base for exploring Tayrona National Park.
  • Have a few free days in Cartagena (still not entirely sure what we’re doing then), so recommendations are welcome.
  • Finally, a last few days in Medellin, where we are planning a day trip our to Guatape and El Peñon rock. It’s 650 steps up, so I guess it’s time to start training.

  1. Sounds like a great itinerary. If you only have time for 2 museums make sure you visit the gold museum in Bogota and the Museo de Antioquia in Medellin. In Medellin check out Salon Malaga the most interesting cafe in Colombia it’s like entering another world especially when they have one of the free tango shows and is unknown to most tourists. If you have time for Spanish lessons check out my free guide The best part about Colombia is the friendliness of the people making practising Spanish very easy. Even if you don’t speak Spanish the locals will do their best to make you feel welcome. Have fun in Colombia!
