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.
