    We completed the 5 day Ciudad Perdida Trek with our family of four, including two children age 5 and 9 years old. The service from Expotur was excellent, starting with the transport from and to the hotel, but also the communication before the trek. Our group of four had three dedicated guides: Jorge, the main guide, Samuel, the translator, and Cunga, the chef. The guides made our trip a great success. Delicious hot food three times per day, showing us the most beautiful places in the jungle, sharing a wealth of information about nature and culture, but above all, carrying our youngest child for miles across difficult terrain. The trek is very challenging, but our 9 year old daughter walked the full 57km distance (5500m total climb) and our 5 year old really enjoyed the adventure thanks to the loving care of our guides. The camps were great. There is WiFi everywhere for a small fee. The camp showers are cold but that is fine if you shower immediately when arriving at a camp hot and sweaty. Every camp has a shop where you can buy cold water bottles and beer. During the hikes, you get a break every 2km where the guides serve you fresh fruit. It makes the hikes easier to endure. The guides made the whole experience feel very luxurious. Meeting Mamo at Ciudad Perdida, the giant waterfall, the cable cart river crossings and swimming in the river are just some of the highlights of our trip.

    Tayrona is the Latin America Hawaii. Beautiful beaches, rivers, waterfalls, and the forest is amazing.
    We stay at Casa grande surf hostal near to the Tayrona Park entrance, very good location to go around everywhere.
    The place is beautiful and the staff very nice. The food and drinks are delicious and have very affordable prices.
    They offer relax and therapeutic massages, the best I have in my whole life.

    Then we stay at Rodadero Santa Marta. Very nice beaches, great restaurants around the beach and in downtown. Wonderful city lo visit, and affordable.
    We enjoy so much our visit to the Colombian Caribe.

    I learned a lot from the self-guided tour about the history of the el Libertador! I loved how Santa Marta honors Bolivar and is keeping his memory alive.

    The Quinta is amazing and very well serviced!

    It has a nice atmosphere during the afternoon and night. Lots of restaurants (with local and international food), cafés, and good places for ice cream and seafood. There are also several bars where you can dance or just have a drink. There are sometimes street musicians in the center of the park and its surroundings. It is a very cool place and it is very close to nice hostels.

    A great way to spend an hour, for a break from the pool and/or beach. Very recommended. Not huge so only lasts an hour or so.

    This is a tubing journey of almost 1:30 hours through the rio Don Diego. Beautiful place to see monkeys, different type of birds and have fun enjoying the scenery of the jungle all the way to the ocean. Adolfo was our guide and was really kind, assisting our kids all the time and giving us all the information throughout the river. Amazing place and very well organized. I suggest you do the visit to Taironaka and start from there the tubing

    Nice little museum. A collection of the areas historical display from indigenous, settlers and more. The gold is fake but still nice to look at

    So many good food options, shopping options and a grocery store. Really good security to keep out the buskers and very clean and well-lit. We went every night of our stay.

    This is a great area to walk around in the evening. There are countless restaurants with great outdoor seating as well as an open air market. Well worth an evening stroll...

    Santa Marta it's a very wellcoming town, you can find a variety of restaurants and places to eat at. I felt very safe while I was stying there. People are very nice too, and just in general the culture there is very amusing. I loved the sunsets and the beach.
