We begin our tour in Bogotá, formerly called Santa Fe de Bogotá. It is the capital and the largest city of Colombia with a population of seven million. We will be staying in the Candelaria district an excellent location within walking distance of many of the main sights including the main square - Plaza Bolívar, the Cathedral and Simón Bolívar's house. You may like to take the funicular to Monserrate for the incredible city views, or visit the world famous gold museum. A recommended activity would be the graffiti tour where you can explore some of the famous street art that adorns the city’s walls.

This attractive town was founded in 1572 which has been preserved, with virtually no modern architectural influences at all, as a National Monument by the Colombian Government. You'll have time to enjoy its chaming colonial plaza, exploring the narrow streets and private courtyards. Get talking to some of the locals, Colombians are some of the friendliest people in South America and are always happy to show you their way of life. This is also a popular area for hiking and mountain biking options.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, little is known about the communities that carved these statues apart from the few traces of their existence that they left behind. The following day we will have a guided tour through San Augustín Archaeological Park. There are hundreds of these statues to see spread over a huge area as well as many ancient burial sites. The pre-Columbian community was eventually replaced by a new group of people who arrived possibly from the Amazon region in the late eighth century bringing in more complex agriculture practises. The parks also have some amazing views of the valley.

With some of the best coastline on the whole continent, Tayrona National Park is a chance to escape from the towns and cities and relax. It is a few hours of gentle hiking to reach the secluded beaches where roads and cars have no access. You can hire a guide to take you to some of the local villages in the nearby mountains or hike through the dense rainforest, stumbling across ancient Pre-Columbian ruins reclaimed by the jungle and its many residents from the animal and bug kingdom. You can snorkel in the reefs with magnificent tropical fish and marine life or enjoy fresh food from the local food stalls. Tayrona National Park is a chance to recharge your batteries. To enter Tayrona National Park you must have a valid yellow fever certificate.

IMPORTANT: For the month of February 2018, Tayrona National Park will be closed while the indigenous communities are given the time to clean the park and perform traditional rituals within its parameters. Instead, you will enjoy a full day excursion to Taironaka Park and Playa Los Angeles. The day spent here will give you as similar an experience to Tayrona National Park as possible. A visit to Taironaka, the remains of an indigenous community which can be reached by tubing or boat down the Don Diego River, will give us a chance to experience the Kogi community first hand.After meeting the community, you will continue down-river to the sea, possibly spotting howler monkeys on the way as well as plenty of other wildlife.
