Isla Baru is absolute paradise. It’s one of those places I close my eyes and dream of on a rainy day. Sure, it’s quite isolated and not easily accessible, but once you get there you have no desire to leave, so the lack of mobility isn’t an issue at all. We spent two nights/three days there, and although part of me would like to stay forever, it was a perfect little escape.
Our first stop in Colombia was Cartagena, the beautiful caribbean city in the north of the country that looks more like a perfectly preserved colonial town than a major city. Cartagena is warm, busy, and has some of the best restaurants I’ve ever tried. I’d give anything to be back there right now.
Ten days in Colombia was not enough! From Feb 17 to 27 I went to Colombia with my Dad, sister, and her boyfriend. It was by no means a backpacker’s trip – We stayed at some beautiful places and ate some really amazing meals. In the ten days we visited Cartagena, Baru, and Bogota, and there’s nowhere I don’t want to go back to!
