1. La Ciudad Perdida

La Ciudad Perdida Colombia

The Ciudad Pérdida is truly an amazing jungle hiking tour of four days and three nights through a beautiful jungle towards the “the lost city”. The Sierra Nevada is located right on the coast, making this jungle a little different from other jungles such as the Amazon. Its vegetation is not as thick as normal, and instead of being flat, it is covered by a chain of small mountains.

During the hike, you will encounter the indigenous people called the Kogi’s, who dress in white and have been living there for centuries. All tours provide you with three delicious meals a day, along with fruits along your hike to stay refreshed. On the 3rd day, you will wake up early and climb towards the Lost City, a place where almost 10.000 Tayrona Indians used to live. The view and the hike is amazing. Some people say it is even better than the Inca trail to Machu Picchu in Peru.

2. Santa Martha

Santa Martha is a bustling beach city with many people who come to enjoy the incredible nightlife. It is a happy town and very hot during summer. Expect rooftop parties, busy little markets, and delicious Colombia street food with loads of fruits, friendly people and a great vibe.

3. Taganga for diving and snorkelling

If you visit this part of Colombia after your Spanish course in Cartagena, you shouldn´t forget to get your diving certification or PADI in Taganga! This town offers you great lessons and diving instructors for a very, very low price. Many travellers go here to obtain their license and party… it is a crazy and vibrant little town.

4. Tayrona Park

As mentioned above, the Sierra Nevada jungle is located just next to the sea. This provides impressive landscapes around the coastal areas. Tayrona is a jungle park where you can hike and eventually reach beautiful turquoise beaches with white sand. In Tayrona, there are several unique spots where you can sleep. The best place is Cabo San Juan; here, you can rent (or bring your own) hammocks and tents and sleep just right on the beach!

5. Punto Gallina

Punto Gallina is the most upper point of South America. You can only reach this point by booking a tour or renting a jeep, as you have to cross a whole desert to get there. The desert is called Guajira, and its location is both exciting and a little strange, as it is located just next to the Caribbean.

Along your way, you will find extremely tough and abandoned beaches with the wind blowing very hard and sand going everywhere. This adventurous tour will also lead you by indigenous people, the Wayuu, who will always try to stop your car for food by holding a rope in front of the road. This tour is not for people who do not like bumpy rides, but it is truly incredible and authentic.
