My fiancee and I had the best time with our guide Yuly. We met at the hostel/hotel and then went to get breakfast. The breakfast was at a local spot and it was great. We had option of tamales, caldo de costilla, and eggs, coffee, juice or chocolate. Afterwards, we went to Choachi and had some stops to learn more about the native plants and their properties; we also had the opportunity to try the coca leaf to help with elevation sickness. Throughout the breakfast/lunch, car ride, and hike, Yuly was very talkative, knowledgeable, and informative about the indigenous culture, the Andean mountains, the Chorrera, and the food. Yuly was also very responsive when we slowed down or stumbled over steps and she walked at a great pace for my partner and I. We also had the best arepas with guava and cheese of our lives!
We had such a great time visiting La Chorrera and just a magical day overall. Our guide Freddy was so friendly, knowledgeable and genuine. We ended up spending extra time on the hike, getting to see some additional parts of the park, and he never rushed us or made us feel like we had to skip anything. I went on this adventure by myself, but made some new friends and we just had such a great group and wonderful day. You cannot believe this amazing natural park is just outside Bogota. Highly recommend!
Это было прекрасно! У меня был превосходный водитель, который заботился обо мне во время всего тура. Никаких опозданий не было, все четко. Плюс мы еще заехали в колледж, где учился Маркес (потому что я была одна и мы все равно были в центре), просто потому что заговорили о литературе и я упомянула, что очень люблю Маркеса. Меня угощали вкусным кофе и вообще это был очень насыщенный день. Лагуна и Собор однозначно стоит посетить. Тур организован превосходно❤️
This is a must-do experience while in Colombia. You get beautiful city views on the drive to/from, wonderful lush surroundings throughout the hike to and from actual waterfalls, and it’s just all gorgeous. There are some semi-challenging bits, but totally worth it. Our guide (Nick) was fantastic, very kind, informative, and super helpful. The breakfast and lunch were pretty great too!
It was not an easy hike but it was worth it. The view is so beautiful. It wasn't hot but not cold either and we had good weather. Our guide was excellent and very attentive and helpful and fun. He was very patient and kept a good pace. We all really enjoyed this hiking.
