Itinerary

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
