Tayrona National Park in One Day

The idea of racing to get a camping spot in a hammock or inside a hardly-washed tent to spend an evening in Tayrona National Park was never particularly appealing to me.  Although witnessing a sunrise and/or sunset on its magnificent beaches would be amazing, I decided that the conditions under which you spend the night were not appealing to me.  So, along with a new friend, I daytripped to Tayrona National Park all in one day, and though it was a busy day, it can be done!

Visiting Guatapé with the Paisas

I originally read that Guatapé, a two hour trip outside of Medellin, was busy and crowded on weekends, and so, not being a fan of crowds, planned to visit on a Monday as a daytrip.  But some things in our Medellin schedule had to get rearranged, and so we had to change our daytrip to fall on a Sunday.  It turns out this was the best decision that could have happened – the vibe of Guatapé on a Sunday was one of my most fun days in Colombia.
