I booked a last minute trip solo trip Colombia for 5 days all under $500 (flight and stay included) how beautiful was that? Colombia is full of vibrant arts, colorful buildings, and shopping markets. This five day trip was well worth it. The Palenqueras were all around Colombia with their beautiful colorful dresses carrying around huge bowls fruits and meats on top of there heads. They make their money taking pictures for tourist and I could not resist, I loved their energy! Visiting Palenque and Boca Chica was the highlight of my trip due to its high representation of culture. I went to visit the school of Palenque where the students welcomed us by dancing, raping , and playing music on their drums. Before the tour ended, I ate coconut rice and fish in one of the Palenque women house. It was amazing!
