Monserrate Bogota

Image
The Church on top of Monserrate mountain was a Catholic church built between 1650 and 1657. Located 3,152 meters above sea level, Monserrate was a favourite place for the pilgrimage in the earlier days, and it hasn't stopped in the modern day. The church's popularity continues soaring, and it becomes one of the tops visited places in Bogota.


Three Days Two Nights in Girardot

Image
Last month Mike and I had a chance to travel a bit further away from Bogota for the warm weather, and also for my birthday vacation. It's a town about 137km away from our home in Chapinero, Bogota. This town founded on 09th October 1852 and its name 'Girardot' was a tribute to the hero named Manuel Atanasio Girardot who died in the Battle of the Bárbula. The temperature during our stay was around 28ºC to 33ºC.

One night in San Francisco Cundinamarca

Image
San Francisco is another place where you can go for quick and temporary relief from the cold weather in Bogota. Located about 55km away from Bogota with the elevation of 1,520metres and the average temperature of 20°C. Though it's not as warm as its neighbouring town La Vega, it's still an excellent place to be.


Glamping and Hiking in the Caribbean Coast

Image
A taxi ride from Santa Marta town to Tayrona Park is about 90,000 ~ 100,000COP, but you could also take public transport to bring down the cost. The bus parked in front of Santa Marta public market at Carrera 9 Calle 11 with a signed P. Tayrona and other destination like Guachaca in front of the bus's mirror. In this trip, we stayed at Playa Los Angeles, which is about 70 minutes journey - 40km from the town, and 3km away from the park's entrance.
