This list of incredible places worth visiting in Colombia is endless... But these are our favorites based on our central route. And if they don't make the cut, we've offered a list of places we didn't have time to see but have added to our bucket list!
We read a lot of different blogs about how to hike Valle de Cocora before we arrived... that you MUST go early to avoid rain, that although it's difficult, it's worth it to take the full 5 hour circuit, that you should probably wear rain boots because of the mud (we didn't wear them and had no problems), and that if you'd prefer a shorter route, it's possible to skip right to the grande finale.
The Rock of El Peñon was first climbed in the 50s using nothing but a wooden plank. Thankfully someone built a staircase ;) With over 700 steps to the highest lookout, it definitely offers some of the best views of Guatape.
