Trip review
Colombia

Chicago seniors
Chicago seniors
loved their trip to Colombia

We planned a visit that was much too short and only had time to visit Bogata and Villa de Leyva. In Bogata, we loved the big attractions: Gold Museum and the Botero Museum and the smaller attractions of many local restaurants, neighborhoods and markets. We strongly recommend visiting the Salt Cathedral and Villa de Leyva and a horseback ride in the mountain foothills. As our trip was too short, we plan to visit again soon to learn about and enjoy other cities and the coffee area.

Best parts:
We love Columbia. We appreciated many things : the people, the culture, the museums, mountains, cathedrals, history and food. We stayed in the historic district of La Candelaria and could walk to where we planned to visit. Our accommodations were small, charming, well located with helpful staffs. The American dollar goes a long way. Our tour guides were always on time, well informed and interesting. They went out of their way to introduce us to both small and big pleasures and features. Our trip was very short, allowing us to visit only Bogota and Villa de Leyva. We found these cities interesting and recommend them to future visitors
Worst parts:
The car traffic, as expected, is a problem in Bogota and demands extra time when planning to visit sites outside hotel areas When visited Guatavita, the guide spoke Spanish and would not allow us to separate from the large group. We do not recommend this visit to English speaking tourists ***I will send pictures separately
