After this bad luck, we now have only 10 days that we can "use" to travel in Colombia. Starting from the border with Quito, at Ipiales, what route and which places should we choose to visit, keeping in mind that we must be back in Ecuador in only 10 days, and that we are not fit to ride everyday for 500+ kms, we need 1 or 2 days to rest in between. I'm thinking of following the route to Calli, Popoyan, Medellin, then back south, ride the "circuito cafeteras" (manizales, pereira, armenia, ibague), then again back to Popoyan, Calli, border. Another choice would be after Medellin to continue north just to see Cartagena (is it really such a beautiful city?), but then time is enough just to reverse the route back to the border. Thoughts, advices? Thank you!
