We'll meet at the Journalists' Park right next to The Candelaria district. From there depending on the amount of people and their preferences we'll take public transportation to make it to the "sweetest market on earth" Paloquemao Market. Once in there we'll start tasting different delicacies (I'll make sure you get charged as a local) and start connecting the history and traditions of Colombia with its fruits. Depending on the season of the year we’ll taste around 25 different fruits, after walking around the market and its sections such as the outdoor flower market and the fish market we'll end the experience with a fruit juice tasting that goes along with a traditional snack. The privileged geographic position Colombia has due to its proximity to the equator and the Andes crossing the whole country creates the perfect conditions for fruits to develop unique flavors.
I'm a Colombian travel lover, Bogotanian by birth but a world citizen by choice, I've been travelling around the world since I was seven-years-old, I've become aware of the cultural and natural richness of my country. Colombian fruits have a story to tell about the land where they thrive, the hands that tend them and pick them, from those who rely on honored traditions to innovators who find new ways for the world to enjoy their flavors. I'd like to share all my knowledge with you. Instagram: @fruittour.bogota
