Happy Birthday, Chris!
What a fantastic place to spend your special day! I'm always so impressed by how you find beautiful paradises and great activities. Those panoramas and the tower view are spectacular!

Best wishes to both of your for a fabulous new year!

Re: Happy Birthday, Chris!
Thank you Tara. Guatape was a beautiful place with some amazing scenery and a lot of fun too. Your right, certain places in Colombia can get filled up very quickly during special occasions - christmas, new year, religious festivals & carnivals (there's a lot of these) etc. Despite it being quite busy we were able to book our hostel a few days in advance. Guatape was a great mix of fun, activities and relaxation.
