Experience Colombia Itinerary
Day 1 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.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1
Days 2-4 Medellin
Enjoy the perfect climate in Colombia's magical Medellin, known as the 'City of Eternal Spring'. Medellin has experienced a miraculous rebirth in recent years, and now brims with modernist architecture and proud locals. Museums, parks and the botanical gardens are good places to soak up the atmosphere of this charismatic city.
ACCOM: Hotel - 3
Days 5-6 Santa Marta/Tayrona National Park
Fly to Santa Marta before enjoying seaside bliss away from the tourist crowds in the spectacular Tayrona National Park. Hike through the dramatic setting of rugged mountains, verdant rainforest and jagged rocks or swim at some of the most beautiful beaches in Colombia.
ACCOM: Hammock - 2
Days 7-9 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.
