My Hammock in the Sunshine

See our full list of Where to Go in 2015.

After climbing and hiking in the Colombian jungle for over 10 hours, I began to have second thoughts on my Parque Tyrona adventure.

But the feeling quickly dissolved as I descended the final set of boulders. As the forest trees began to grow thin, replaced by palm trees, the view cleared, and this is what I saw: the most perfect, serene, and lovely isolated paradise I've come across in my life thus far.

There's a campground (tents only), a lovely restaurant that serves up fresh blended mango, pineapple and papaya juice, as well as food to reenergize after a long hike.

I could have stayed here for a week, at least.
