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.
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.
