Enjoy a day of hiking (or optional horseback riding) in the spectacular Cocora Valley. Visit a traditional Andean market in Silvia, and be impressed by superb sites and colonial architecture in the Andean towns of Villa de Leyva, Bogota (including the Gold museum), Popoyan and Barichara. The crown jewel is Cartagena on the coast which is arguably the most beautiful colonial city in the Americas.

The ancient statues of San Agustin are numerous (over 600 in total) and mysterious. No one knows who created them or why. Dating from 1000 to 5000 years, the statues depict people, animals, pregnant women, monsters and even combines people and animals. The tallest is 21' high and there are many burial sites.

Enjoy coastal stops in Tayrona National Park while staying at the unique ecohabs, one of many beautiful and tranquil experiences during your adventure to Colombia.
