Bogota Hostels


About Antonio (your host at ChapinorteBogotá):

Originally from Granada, Spain—Antonio has traveled and lived throughout Europe and the Americas.

Following 2 years in the UK and 5 years in the USA, Antonio returned to Spain where he opened his first hostel (in Madrid—www.barbierihostel.com) in 2000.

By 2005, the traveling bug once again took hold, and he ventured off to various countries in South America. From Argentina, his travels through Uruguay and Brazil were delayed by a 6-month stint working at a local hostel near the amazing Iguazu Falls (Argentina/Brazil border).

Continuing north (through Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia), he once again settled into a new location—Caracas, Venezuela—for a few months. From Venezuela, Antonio returned to live in the amazing country of COLOMBIA—where he opened ChapinorteBogota in 2007.

WHY COLOMBIA? Because it is an affordable country with amazing places and wonderful people!

UNKNOWN AND VIRGIN
The stories of Colombia’s Past keep this country at arms reach for many. However, the stories of Colombia’s Present are far removed from such tales! The result is an amazingly-diverse country ripe for discovery, and safe for travel! Discover new and exciting places, and warm and welcoming people around each new bend!

ADVENTURE
Wild rivers to raft and kayak, active volcanoes to view, and high plateaus that seem to touch the moon and stars! Experience the vast llanos (plains), and the beautiful beaches along two coasts—the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Walk through majestic forests, and explore colonial towns—Colombia is bursting with natural beauty and historic places!

AFFORDABLE
With prices comparable to Peru, Argentina, or Mexico, Colombia is easy on your wallet! Much cheaper than Brazil, Chile and Ecuador! Ecuador. Many “backpackers” or “budget travelers” enjoy much of Colombia for about 850 Euros ($1,000 USD) a month (accommodation, food, transportation, and miscellaneous items).

THE PEOPLE
Colombianos welcome you as nowhere else in South America—offering a warm greeting and open invitation to discover their wonderful land. International tourism is new to Colombia, and locals are quick to initiate conversations and welcome you into their circle of friends and family. Colombia is diverse in topography and in the traditions of its various ethnic groups are equally-diverse. Make a new friend while sharing a unique experience with the people of Colombia!

THE DESTINATIONS

Travel the popular route along the Caribbean coast (Cartagena, Barranquilla and Santa Marta) and visit offshore islands and the Colombia’s magical Tayrona National Park.
Visit the major cities of (Bogotá, Medellin, and Cali) while enjoying the more-temperate weather of the Andean Region, and diverse offerings of these distinctly-different population centers.

And, should your adventurous nature take hold, venture off to the newer destinations of La Guajira, Sincelejo, Monteria, Magangué, San Gil, Barichara, Bucaramanga, Mompos, Tulua, Buga, Popayan, and San Augustine.
There are Salsa Classes in Cali, or Spanish Courses in Bogota. You can eat “Ant Butts” in Bucaramanga, or Paraglide near Medellin.

And yes, Colombia is on the Amazon River as well!
And, when the sun sets, take in the another highlight of Colombia—its nightlife!
