Colombia In 18 Days! Part II — San Gil

at the Bogota bus station

Last week I showed you the first stop of our trip through Colombia in 18 Days! Today I show you the second stop, San Gil. San Gil is widely known for its outdoor adventure activities. It was a place I wish I had more time to explore. I feel like I missed out on some things. Colombia is a country I can definitely picture myself coming back to, so hopefully I can return to San Gil and see the things I missed the first time around.

We arrived at the bus station in the middle of the night. We had no reservations for the night so we found ourselves exhausted and knocking on the door of a hostel around 3am. Luckily the manager was kind enough to let us in. San Gil had a pleasant small town atmosphere. We wandered around a bit and then arranged our whitewater rafting trip.
