Colombia's Caribbean Coast & Lost City

  • 14 Day(s)
  • Trip Code : GASMCS

Colombia has a certain kind of magic that you won't find anywhere else in the Caribbean. On this trip, you'll experience it first-hand via visits to rural villages, treks through Tayrona National Park's picturesque trails (where you'll spend the night in eco huts within the park itself), and (of course), downtime on the beach. Later, head to deep into the jungle to Teyuna - the fabled Ciudad Perdida (“Lost City”) older than Machu Picchu - a place crowded with history and free of crowds. Colombia is mysterious. Come figure out the riddle.

Transfer to Machete Pelao, where you begin the trek to the Lost City of Teyuna. Trek for between 4-5 hours each day through farmland, steamy jungle and rural communities where you can glimpse the life of families going about their daily lives.
