Colombia

Cartagena is Safe Except For Cocaine and Police

Cartagena is one of the most visited cities of Colombia. Many cruise ships used to go there but a decade ago, after a few incidents affecting tourists, the cruise companies decided to skip that city until things would get safer. Now that the city is much safer, and the country is winning in popularity, several touristic ships can be seen in the old town’s dock...

Bogota the Capital of Colombia

Bogota is a huge city. From the top of Montserrat, an altitude of 3200 meters, you can observe part of the 8 million habitants populating the valley. Gigantic cities are usually complicated to visit but luckily everything is grouped up within a few kilometers of each other in Bogota. Pretty much, it can all be visited by walking through the colourful streets from one...

Medellin Colombia – A must see!

On this trip so far Medellin is the city that has surprised me the most. Most people who hear about Colombia you usually think about: murder, kidnapping, cocaine, the FARCs and all kind of negative ideas. I somewhat used to have the same idea before coming here and I thought that I was pretty brave to travel to this country and even more courageous to go the Medellin...

Sometimes while walking a small fog will surround you accompanied by delicate raindrops that are refreshing. That fog is in fact the inside of the cloud coming down from Montserrat. So temperature wise: perfect. On Sunday almost...

Review of Hostel Dreamer of Santa Marta

The staff at the reception felt like friends right away, they were so friendly and wanted to know everything about our trip and our origins. It took us a while to sign the papers because of all the jokes and the fun. Once the paperwork was done they walked us around the hostel and...

A day at Concha Bay of Tayrona – Santa Marta

Concha Bay is a lovely Bay located nearby Santa Marta in Colombia. It takes around 25 minutes to access the beach and the price to get there was and spend the day at the beach was around 25 000 Peso (15$.) This bay probably isn’t as pretty as the rest of Tayrona Park but it really offers a nice and peaceful day right next to the city. Everybody there is very friendly...

2 days in Tayrona National Park

We spent two days in Tayrona National Park. Here is the video. Having traveled most of the Caribbean’s I am not shy to say I know a lot about beaches of the region. It turned out Tayronna National Park is one of my all time favourite. The park is vast and offers great sightseeing and also several opportunities like sleeping in hammocks for a low price. The beaches...
