Unforgettable and unique cathedral

Went here with family and a group of friends from my church back home in Philadelphia... One word “wow!” 
This place is spectacular. Whether you fancy yourself a religious person or not, this is a place that everyone should see at least once.

Coffee plantation tour at Coloma Farm

It was an awesome day going to Coloma Farm about 2 hours south of Bogota. The drive south was very interesting seeing the rest of the city and the scenery after getting out of the city was spectacular. The driver was awesome amongst the chaotic traffic in Bogota. The coffee plantation was awesome and the guy giving the tour Julien was very knowledgeable and informative. But the best part of this tour was the guide from Impulse Travel Andrea. She was super friendly, informative and just a lovely person. She really made the day. I would highly recommend this tour and highly recommend Andrea.

Breathtaking

This was the highlight of my trip. 
You definitely have to be in the mood to do some serious hiking. Wet, soaked, muddy rocky path. A few serious inclines. Cloud forest environment. 
Once you get on the path, there are a few stopping points with docents to provide info. 
The main destination is the La Chorrera, a huge, magnificent, breathtaking cascade waterfall. You get to walk right up to it, face to face.
There are also some great little spots along the way. 
EL Chiflon is the smaller cascade. You can stop there first or on the way back. 
You actually get to walk behind that one. 
You’ll take thousands of pictures. 
Treat yourself to the Cuban restaurant on site and have a mojito, it comes with a free demonstration and history lesson.

Imperdible

Para ser sincero la obra de Botero no era una de mis favoritas. Llegue al Museo casi por casualidad y debo decir que me resultó una experiencia verdaderamente fascinante, no solo por la calidad de la exposición sino por el nivel de las obras y de la colección.

Realmente es un imperdible de la vasta oferta cultural que Colombia tiene para sorprender!

Durante la semana la Expo tiene un costo mínimo de entrad, sin embargo el domingo la entrada es gratuita.

Great & safe experience for Americans!

Had a wonderful time when I was picked up at 8am sharp by the driver and the English speaking guide. We went to many places and even got to buy stuff from street vendors and shops. We didn't really stop for lunch, but because the food is all around you at any given time, it was nice that we could grab-and-go local foods. I traveled alone from the U.S. and I am very happy with the tour! Thanks again!

El Cocuy

Great guide and great experience hiking the mountains of El Cocuy. We had nothing to worry about all transports were organized and our guide knew great places to go eat or walk every stop along the way. The room in La Esperanza is right at the beginning of the trail. We did get a bit cold so I suggest you pack a lot of warm clothes.
