Weekend Getaways: La Pintada, Colombia

Every few weekends my girlfriend, some friends, and I get away from the city life. The greatest part about Medellin is that nearly every weekend you can drive into the mountains and enjoy the little towns nearby the city. There are an unbelievable amount of towns that lie within just a few hours of Medellin. One weekend we stayed at a friends “cabana” in La Pintada just a few hours south of Medellin. Here is a quick look at part of our trip.

Santa Fe de Antioquia

Last weekend I took a little side trip out to Santa Fe de Antioquia with the 4 Musketeers (the name that we have given to our little clan which includes myself, my girlfriend and another couple. We have become great friends seeing how we all met together in the same dance academy).

This town is about an hour Northwest of Medellin, Colombia which still has the old colonial feel with the cobblestone roads. Here are a few photos from our weekend get-a-way.
