There's one night of camping – in the awesome Tayrona National Park. Be prepared for basic conditions in this jungle location. Sleeping in a hammock among the buzzing South American wild is sure to be well worth the lack of creature comforts.
Colombia enjoys a stable year-round climate, but it can get particularly hot and humid on the coast. Be sure to drink plenty of water and wear adequate sun protectionThe Cocora Valley hike is quite rigorous, so you'll need to be fit and have sturdy walking shoes.

Well balanced itinerary with the first half focussing on culture and city life and the second half on more on outdoor activities, countryside and small colonial towns. The trip leaders was helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. In addition to the planned activities, there a some great optional ones, especially the barrio tour in Medellin or visit of Kogi in Guachaca.
