El Museo del Chocolate (Chocolate Museum) is not necessarily a museum but more of a place that celebrates chocolate. You could say it has some museum aspects, but you can also find a great restaurant and beautiful interior and exterior gardens; the decoration is magical … like out of a movie, and your senses are immediately engaged. Think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It is worth visiting at least once.
Tomar las onces – to take the onces is a special time for Colombians because they not only get to enjoy delicious warm food but it is also a time to spend time with family and friends. For las onces, Colombians have hot chocolate, agua de panela, tinto (Colombian coffee) accompanied with cookies or almojábanas, pan de yuca, buñuelos, pan de queso, sweet breads or pastries like milhojas or obleas.
The Colombian Chivas are buses painted colorfully (usually with the colors of the Colombian flag: yellow, blue, and red) and decorated with figures and decorations representative of the region.
You can use your phone while traveling through Colombia. It mainly depends on your cell phone carrier. If you are in the U.S., I recommend contacting your cell phone carrier and asking about International phone and data packages. It used to be that these packages were costly; therefore, many of us got conditioned not even to consider them.
I grew up in Colombia drinking hot chocolate only one way, and it wasn’t with peppermint or marshmallows. It will sound surprising to you but hear me out …
This Ecovillage named Cochahuaira, is located in a perfect place with an unobstructed view of Lake Iguaque. During our visit, we learned that Lake Iguaque was considered a sacred place for the Muisca Tribe.
We enjoyed our stay at the Posada Villa Rouse. The views were amazing and we loved learning how to cook traditional Colombian dishes.
Horses are simply part of this town, so if you enjoy horseback riding, there are many Trails and Tours that you can partake in. I do them every time I go and love them so much.
