El Peñol, a beautiful stone that will open the doors to the imagination

For this reason I decided to take a trip to my native Colombia, South America. I left the city in which I live Bogota by land to the city of Medellin, (which incidentally is a beautiful place and I will speak to you  about this magical city later). Our first destination to talk about will be “El Peñol”.

The intriguing Pacific Coast of Colombia

Ever heard of Buenaventura? I sure didn’t. Nevertheless, I will write this article about my adventure to the intriguing Pacific Coast of Colombia. Why? Because it was fun. And because I can.

Bogotá: The mystic features of Usaquen

Usaquen, an old had been small town in the outskirts of Colombia’s capital, Bogotá D.C., has since long been swallowed by the furious growing of the city. The land used to belong to the Landlord Pepe Sierra, whose house is now the Comercial Center Hacienda Sta. Barbara, situated in the neighbourhood commonly known as Usaquen. The neighbourhood of Usaquen (different from the locality of Usaquen) has long since transformed into one of the most popular hang-out places in the city.

Santafe Mall:

One of the largest shopping centers in the city. It’s located in Poblado. To get there you can take the train to Aguacatala station and from there walk about 10 minutes or just take a taxi from the station (it will not be expensive, it’s really close). Santa Fe has cinema (CineColombia) shopping area with various clothing stores, jewelry, perfumes, bags and so much more. There’s also inside the mall the supermarket Jumbo, a playground (divercity), restaurants and cafes area. In the center of Santa Fe built various activities for all ages as a giant pool balls or ice rink, it is always for everyone and constantly changing. Santa Fe is ideal to go for a walk, have lunch or dinner, shopping and more. For more information on routes, shops and restaurants, promotions and updates, go here.

Cartagena: sunset and night life

Cartagena de Indias is without a doubt one of the most visited destinations when it comes to travel to Colombia. It is a perfect mix of history and the development of modern cities, this combined with the friendliness of its people gives, as a result, an unforgettable experience. This magical city is located on the north coast of this Caribbean country and is also known as “La Heroica” among its inhabitants due to a historical event.

Colombia

As a traveler, one of the most rewarding things you can do is travel somewhere that is unknown to you. We can all agree that Paris is romantic and Italy has good food, whether we have been there or not, but after a while the excitement of fulfilling expectations does not compare with the thrill of discovering an incredible place that you did not even know existed. When I moved to Colombia, I hardly knew a thing about it, even less about the specific region in which I live, but it continues to surprise and excite me with the beauty, drama, and adventure that exists here. If you’ll allow me to tell you a little about this undiscovered gem, the Eje Cafetero or “Coffee Triangle” of Colombia, I hope you’ll be enticed to come see what it is about or to go forth and uncover your own unknown paradise.

Colombia: The Lost City (La Cuidad Perdida)

Colombia: The Lost City (La Cuidad Perdida) Imagine spending four days deep inside a remote, tropical jungle, away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. Add to the mix a diverse range of fauna and flora, rainfalls, fresh water rivers where you can swim to escape the heat all while being surrounded by majestic views of enormous mountains.

Villa de Leyva: one of Colombia

This village, member of the network of villages patrimony of Colombia, will impress you with its colonial architecture: full of white houses with balconies and cobbled streets, that are perfectly combined with the different activities you can find over there. Let’s get started with falling in love with Villa de Leyva, a village that grabs you with its charm at first sight, adventurous activities and history.

You’ve bought your ticket, now what?

My initial hopes to explore both the southern tip of Patagonia in Argentina as well as the sandy shores of Cartagena in Colombia were scaled back to create a more realistic itinerary. However, I didn’t cut back my trip entirely thanks to some clever purchasing of internal flights. This meant that I avoided several 24hr bus trips (and whole days wasted) and instead opted for a few 2-4hr flights.

Medellin: A Thriving Metropolis

Medellin: I know what you’re thinking. The most dangerous city in the world? Right? Wrong. Twenty years ago, yes, Medellin was deemed the most murderous, violent and dangerous city in the world. When I first told my parents I was traveling to Colombia, they immediately said “hell no” and “don’t you dare”. I know it’s what all parents say and if they don’t say it, then their definately thinking it and probably know your not going to listen to them anyways. So why after decades does Colombia get such a bad rep? Because the stereotypes of cocaine, drug cartels and violence is all people think about when someone mentions Colombia and the only way to change the way people think, is to start with a great story!

Cali, Colombia: The Next Big Tourist Destination

Santiago de Cali, more commonly referred to as Cali, is a vibrant city located in the southwest region of Colombia. Nestled in the Valle de Cauca with a population of roughly 3.5 million Cali is the third largest city in Colombia, behind Bogotá and Medellin respectively. When I learned about my year-long teaching placement in Cali I felt excited and nervous at the same time. My family embraced my new adventure with mixed reviews, “But isn’t Colombia really dangerous?” “You mean Columbia, South Carolina?” “You are going to stand out with your blonde hair down there!” Ultimately they came around and supported my new endeavor, however to my embarrassment when asked where Cali was located I realized I knew very little about my new city. Naturally, I first went to my long-time friend, Google. After a quick search of “Cali, Colombia” I found my browser full of images containing violence, drugs, and danger. I am sure if you browse the internet you will find similar results. I began to second-guess my future travel plans but was not about to tell my parents about these internet findings. While this was disheartening, I welcomed the New Year 2016 in the United States, hopped on a plane headed south and have not looked back. During my five months living in Cali I have discovered the dynamic Caleño culture, learned (some) Colombian slang, and realized the inaccuracy of the internet.

General Bogota

Bogota is the capital of Colombia located at the heart of the country, in the Andes mountain range. Because of the high elevation of Bogota, that can reach 3,100 meters high, the climate is rather cold with an average range of 8º to about 18º. Just by wearing jeans and a jacket, you will be as comfortable as you need!

Salento and the Coffee Region of Colombia

Colombia: A Varied Landscape Colombia is now the third largest producer of coffee in the world.  They take pride in this heritage as it defines their history and their cultural landscape today.  If you picture Colombia, you may first picture Cartagena and the lively Carribean port town with their vibrant nightlife and colorful architecture, but Colombia’s diverse landscapes can set the stage for very different communities with their own adventures.  As of writing this, we had been tourists in Colombia for over a month, hitting Carribean Cartagena, northern Parque Tayrona, and down south to the bustling salsa capital of Cali. For variety and to know Colombia better, we headed inland and up into the hills.

Cartagena de Indias: the beginning of a love history with Colombia.

As a Colombian was really hard to see my own country as a touristic place. I thought that for being a tourist or a backpacker I had to travel long distance and going to other continent to finally being a tourist but no, I realized that I’m not a tourist, not in Colombia or somewhere else, I am a traveler.

Some basics before traveling to Medellin, Colombia

Colombia, a country to visit If you are reading this post, it’s because you probably would like to visit Medellin, a city that has become very famous thanks to the (not so nice) series, that show the so horrible history we have passed through. Here I tell you about this awesome city as a citizen who has grown up in its surroundings, and you might like to go to non-very touristic places and see the real nature of the city.
