Villa de Leyva

3 days in the town of Zorro!

Cobblestone streets, Colonial architecture, sleeping and relaxing in hostel Renacer, mountain-biking to Monasterio del Santo Ecce Homo and to los Pozos Azules (where Louis swam in the turquoise water), learning about the old fossils that mark the region, visiting the house of independence warrior Antonio Nariño, and tasting the GREAT food of restaurant Mercado Municipal.

The old city center of Villa de Leyva and our hostel:
