Last week we recounted our time in San Gil, Colombia and the amazing whitewater rafting on Rio Suarez. We began the review of our 18 days in Colombia with the capital of the country, Bogota. This Monday we recap our day in Barichara.
The charming colonial village of Barichara, Colombia is only a 40 minute shuttle ride away from San Gil. It makes a great day trip from San Gil or you could stay a few days if you truly want to get away from it all.
We took the 40 minute shuttle there from San Gil. Then we walked around the village. We walked uphill to the top of the village as recommended to see a phenomenal view of the valley.
After we tired out we sat down for a good lunch.
Following the tasty lunch we wandered around a little bit more before returning to San Gil in the shuttle.
Be sure to watch the video below for a more complete picture of our time in Barichara. Next Monday will be Part IV, a review of our time in Cartagena…
