However, according to what I learned at Guatavita, El Dorado has nothing to do with hard-to-find jungle cites… La Laguna de Guatavita is a crater lake in rolling countryside lying about an hour to the north of&nb ...

    It's safe to say Colombian food often gets a bad wrap, but if you give it a chance, I'm confident you'll find at least five dishes you'll want to eat more than once. Below are five of my favorites. These are the foods I miss most when I'm not in the country. 1. Ajiaco I discovered ajiaco on my first full day in Colombia. I was walking around P ...

I'm embarssed to admit that my knowledge of the country was limited to what I'd seen on news clips and in Hollywood movies. Now that I've spent over a year and a half living in Medellin, and traveling Colombia, I can lo ...

Weekends and holidays are all reason enough for them to visit nearby pueblos, usually no more than an hour or two away by car or bus.
