Colombia~s Caribbean Coast & Lost City Adventure Tour

South America

  • Colombia

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 regions, treks through Tayrona National Park's picturesque trails and (of course), downtime on the beach. Spend time with village communities to learn about Indigenous traditions before heading 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.


Wander the old walled city of Cartagena, Sip a cold beverage by the Caribbean Sea, Learn about Wiwa customs on a village visit, Hike through the lush jungle to the Lost City.

Emergency Fund

Please also make sure you have access to at least an additional USD $200 (or equivalent) as an 'emergency' fund, to be used when circumstances outside our control (ex. a natural disaster) require a change to our planned route. This is a rare occurrence!

Solo Travellers

We believe solo travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi
share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Spending Money

Every traveller is different and therefore spending money requirements will vary. Some travellers may drink more than others while other travellers like to purchase more souvenirs than most. Please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, shopping and tipping. Please also remember the following specific recommendations when planning your trip.

What to Take

Most people automatically assume that the weather is hot in South America, but because of the higher altitude in the Andes, the temperature can feel quite cold, especially at night. Remember that although near the Equator, the higher altitude on some parts of the trip make for cool evenings and you will need a warm sweater or pullover. It's best to layer clothes rather than bring a heavy parka so that you can take layers off. We recommend using a backpack for your convenience, or a medium
sized suitcase if you prefer. A daypack (30
40L) is also essential for carrying everyday items. Space is limited on transportation, so there is a limit of one main piece of luggage per person. You will be responsible for carrying your own luggage.
