On our way to Lifebreak Finca we stopped a the side of the road, where one of the locals was making “Empanadas”, and Esben had some kind of blood sausage containing potato and rice. I had a bite and it wasn’t bad at all.
We stayed at a place called Lifebreak Finca (booked through www.airbnb.com), were we had a private room with a bathroom on the first floor. The room had safe parking just ouside the room, which is really important for us. From the window in our room we could see the Piedra del Peñol (right picture).
Lifebreak Finca is a new hostal owned by two people from Austria, who wanted to do something else with their lives. They want to create a small hostel located in the countryside away from all the tourists in Guatape. The surroundings of the hostal is amazing, and you get a change to meet the locals. Lifebreak Finca is only a 15-20 minutes drive from Guatape and we would recommend it to everybody.
The local “colegia” taxis or busses can take you all the way to the driveway of Lifebreak Finca, if you don’t have a vehicle.
During the week the place is nice and quiet, and Friday evening the locals were invited to a BBQ-party. Here I am standing next to one of the owners of the Lifebreak Finca.
Off course we shopped for fresh fruit and vegetables in the local neighborhood… here in a local stand in El Peñol. Please pay attention to the size of the corns I am holding in my hands in the right picture.
Everywhere we go our motorcycles attracts attention and creates happiness… so far the Columbians are amazing people, always curios and nice!
We had a great time at Lifebreak Finca, but it was time to go further south
Focusing on our next adventure in the nature. See you in Valle de Cocora
