Chinacota is a beautiful hill station in Colombia. Locals from the Cucuta and other neighbouring cities often come here to beat the heat. It is a peaceful little town. This lovely place is an art cafe. They sold beautiful Colombian handicrafts, scarves, jewellery and wooden articles. The owners were very hospitable.
