There was No Risk: I Wanted to Stay in Villa de Leyva

For my first blog trip, courtesy of ProExport (the same people who bring you colombia.travel), my mission was to discover Villa de Leyva in the state of Boyaca. Villa de Leyva is a focal point of history, paleontology, art and nature. There is no crime, no garbage in the streets or streams, no raucous crowds.

Most of the streets are made of the original stones and mortar, completing the illusion that here time has stopped. The climate is perfect thanks to the dry air of the adjacent Candelaria desert, despite being located at over 2,000 meters (6,000 feet) above sea level. It is a place of singular beauty, and not unlike many others who have discovered it, I fell under its spell and long to return, not just to visit, but to live!
