Overview of Guadalupe Santander

Hotel Colonial - Calle 5A No 6-03

Hotel Colonial is located just a block from the main plaza, and has comfortable rooms in a lovely one-storey traditional building. A double room costs just 35.000 pesos (with a slight increase during holidays). 

Hostal Bonanza - Calle 5 Nº 5-02 

Hostal Bonanza is the small guesthouse run by local tour-guide Jose Navarro (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ), and also offers the nicest meals in town. Located on the main square, Bonanza has several basic comfortable rooms available, as well as the bonus of the attached restaurant.

Eating and Restaurants
..........................................................................................................................................

The best restaurant in town is easily the Bonanza restaurant on the corner of the main square - a nicely decorated little eatery serving excellently prepared versions of Colombian classics such as churrasco, trucha, and pollo a la plancha, Bonanza also has a good value breakfast. There is little variety of food in Guadalupe (vegetarians may struggle to find options other than rice and salad), and, as in many small Colombian towns, dinner is rather limited to fast-food options like burgers and hot-dogs - eat a big lunch!

Nightlife, Bars and Clubs

..........................................................................................................................................

Guadalupe takes the concept of 'sleepy little town' to new levels and, consequently, there is very little in the way of nightlife available to visitors. A handful of small tienda-style bar surround the main square and, on weekends, these can fill up and provide a nice (slightly drunken) atmosphere, and the main square itself has a pleasant ambience in the evening, as families gather to enjoy the balmy evening weather with an ice-cream or soft-drink. If you're looking for clubs and nightlife, maybe Guadalupe isn't for you!

How to Get There?

Quebrada Las Gachas Santander

Guadalupe lies just off the highway that links San Gil and Bogota, so the average visitor will be coming from either of these places. From Bogota take a bus bound for Socorro from either Salitre terminal or Portal Norte (50.000 COP) and ask to be dropped in Oiba. If you arrive before 5pm in Oiba simply get a colectivo to Guadalupe on the edge of town (6.500 COP; 45 minutes). From San Gil the journey is much shorter: just 2 hours to Oiba then on to Guadalupe.
