This is Guatapé, Colombia The entire town is colorfully and cheerfully painted. Apparently it started with families painting images along the sides of their homes, and I suppose it has just evolved from there. This little town was an absolute pleasure to meander through and photograph:
Guatapé is also famous for being home to the best view in the world. This is a very subjective title, but there is no doubt that it is high on the list. Atop a rock, which looks like it was literally dropped on top of a hill, you can view 360 degrees of the surrounding island scenery. Being up there really makes you appreciate how beautiful our planet is.
Colombia is full of hidden treasures like this. It is not at all the "dangerous, risky, unsafe" place most people think it is. I highly recommend seeing it for yourself!
