Colonial Colombia Itinerary
Days 1-2 Cartagena
Wander around Cartagena's walled Old Town, peeking inside its candy-coloured buildings and spying the shady courtyards hidden within. Get a bird's-eye view from the top of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, or perhaps experience the therapeutic effects of a mud bath on a visit to a bubbling volcano. The nearby group of tiny coral islands and the stunning expanse of Playa Blanca (White Beach) reveal the hidden beauty of Colombia's Caribbean coast.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2
Days 3-4 Guachaca region
Travel along the Caribbean coast to the scenic Guachaca region. Choose from a wide range of adventure activities on offer or just kick back and take in the gorgeous ocean views from the hostel veranda.
ACCOM: Hostel - 2
Day 5 Tayrona National Park
Sample a slice of seaside bliss far removed from the tourist crowds in stunning Tayrona National Park. Hike through the dramatic mountain scenery, verdant rainforest and jagged rocks for a swim at some of Colombia's most glorious beaches.
ACCOM: Hammock - 1
Days 6-7 Villa de Leyva
Settle in among the quaint whitewashed villas and expansive cobblestone plazas of Colombia's best preserved colonial city. Don't miss out on a visit to the traditional farmers' market for the chance to snack on some local delicacies.
ACCOM: Hostel - 1
Days 8-9 Bogota
Resting among emerald, mist-shrouded mountains, the cosmopolitan streets of Bogota are sure to delight. Take a walk through the colourful laneways of the city's historic heart, La Candelaria. Boasting a wealth of cosy cafes and colonial churches, this is a neighbourhood full of surprises. For breathtaking views of this sprawling capital, head to the top of Montserrat where scenic mountain-top cafes offer an escape from the chilly Andean air.

Colonial Colombia, April 2014
the tour was excellent with the leader Linda and unacceptable with the leader Anna she needed a wheelchair at the airport, could never walk to restaurants or anywhere else, showed up at included meals after everyone was finished, helped us book a room in the Amazon but did nothing extra for the group, had to hire private transport and made us pay, also had to hire guides for any walking tours, could not handle problems, said Intrepid never went to Santa Marta even tho it's listed for days 9-10 and she admitted she took the last group there
