“Morning: You’ve seen photos of Guatapé before—the one 650-foot tall rock jutting up in the middle of a lake, surrounded by what looks like hundreds of little islands. For most travelers, a day trip to the region centers around an obligatory trek to a popular viewpoint; instead, we’re going to spend the day taking it all in from a private lakehouse. We’ll have the luxe outfittings all to ourselves, including a pool, hammocks, and nooks for hiding out with a book (or cocktail). Down on the private dock, you can also swim in the lake or take one of the house’s kayaks and stand up paddle boards out for a spin.”

“Afternoon: At lunchtime, a locally-based asador will come to the house to prepare a traditional Colombian barbecue. He’ll fire up the grill early, and a revolving door of meats and vegetables will be thrown on the grill, cooked, and laid out for us to feast on throughout the afternoon. “
