Ride a chiva

Ride a chiva

Check out the colours! Chivas are art-on-wheels, with wooden benches, wooden racks, wooden frames (resist jokes about ‘wouldn’t go’) and an explosion of life inside. Take a bumpy ride and you could be sharing your seat with an entire farming family, complete with chickens, or maybe you’ll end up balancing on the roof, part of this rainbow-on-the-move’s luggage. Sadly not as common a sight as they once were, it’s worth making time for this quintessentially riotous Colombian experience.
