I'm in Salento right now, stayed off the bike today to explore Cocora Valley. Little back tracking first; yesterday morning started with climbing 659 steps to the top of monolith in Guatape. The gate opened at 8:00 am and I was the first to go through it. Really steep climb, took a little breather for my heart to catch up and realize what is going on. It took me 20 minutes to get to the top. Views are amazing, well worth a night stay. Went back to hotel and left right at 10:00 am. It took me almost nine hours to make it to Salento. Only 200 miles but every 5 minutes there was a road repair stoppage. There was a moto race at every stop, it was fun riding with locals on the their small motos. If you come to Salento, look for La Serrena Eco Farm/Hostel. https://www.google.com.co/maps/plac...cb43c4e90d510df!8m2!3d4.6305264!4d-75.5822709 Dorm room bed for $7.80 a night. I have one dorm to myself. Simple breakfast included and plenty of parking. Very tranquil with amazing views. They have private rooms, tent cabins and spots for camping. Access to full kitchen and some days they have dinner available at on site restaurant as well. Clean hot showers. Wifi is very slow, I tried to upload a picture earlier and no bueno. This morning, walked to the centro and took a ride in Willys to the Cocora Valley; home of the tallest wax palms on the planet. Total cost to visit Cocora Valley $2.19. I took a shorter trail because of the rain and mud. I'll post pictures when I can. Later..
