Today, we embark on a guided day tour, brimming with adventure, scenic hikes, delectable eats, and refreshing drinks. Strap on your hiking boots, and let’s dive headfirst into the heart of Colombia’s natural and cultural wonders!

Morning Bliss: Breakfast of Champions

Before we set off on our escapade, let’s fuel up with a traditional Colombian breakfast at one of Barichara’s cozy cafes. Imagine sipping on freshly brewed coffee, accompanied by arepas (corn cakes) and huevos pericos (scrambled eggs with tomatoes and onions). A perfect start to a day filled with exploration!

 

Hit the Trail: Hiking from Barichara to Guane

With our bellies satisfied, it’s time to hit the trail! Our journey begins with a scenic hike from Barichara to Guane, a neighboring village that feels like a step back in time. As we set forth, the picturesque countryside unfolds before us, with rolling hills, ancient stone paths, and breathtaking vistas.

En route, our knowledgeable guide shares fascinating tales about the region’s history, culture, and flora. The trail is alive with the chirping of birds and the rustle of leaves underfoot, creating a symphony of nature that serenades our senses.

Guane: A Glimpse into the Past

Upon reaching Guane, it’s like stepping into a storybook village. Cobblestone streets, whitewashed houses, and friendly locals create an atmosphere that feels frozen in time.

Our guide leads us through the village, recounting tales of ancient civilizations and Spanish conquests, vividly depicting Guane’s rich heritage.

 

Culinary Delights: Guane’s Gastronomic Treasures

After our hike, we’ve certainly worked up an appetite! Guane offers a delightful array of culinary delights. Let’s savor local specialties like lechona (roast pork stuffed with rice and peas), empanadas (savory pastries filled with meat or cheese), and ajiaco (hearty chicken and potato soup). These flavors explode on our taste buds, providing a true taste of Colombian gastronomy.

 

Quenching the Thirst: A Toast to Adventure

Our thirst quencher comes in the form of chicha, a traditional fermented corn beverage. Sipping on this mildly alcoholic drink, we raise our glasses to the day’s adventures, new friendships, and the beauty of Colombia’s countryside.

Afternoon Exploration: Barichara’s Hidden Gems

Having returned to Barichara, the afternoon sun casts a golden glow upon the town, illuminating its architectural marvels. Our guide leads us to hidden gems like the Santa Barbara Chapel, adorned with intricate woodwork and religious artifacts.

We stroll through the Parque para las Artes, where local artists showcase their talents, and perhaps, we might even find a unique keepsake to take home.

Sunset Magic: Mirador de Barichara

As the day draws to a close, we make our way to the Mirador de Barichara, a viewpoint offering panoramic views of the sun setting over the Suárez River Valley.

The sky is ablaze with hues of orange and pink, painting a mesmerizing canvas that leaves us in awe of nature’s artistry.

 

Evening Indulgence: Dining under the Stars

For our final culinary adventure, we indulge in a dinner under the stars. Imagine dining al fresco, surrounded by the gentle hum of crickets and the scent of blooming flowers.

We feast on local delicacies like Bandeja Paisa (a hearty platter with rice, beans, meat, chorizo, and plantains) and enjoy the warmth of Colombian hospitality.
