💎 Why we love it ?

When you land in Colombia, you’ll quickly feel the warmth in the air of the ¨Sabrosura¨ of the country, a meaning which you will discover after joining this experience. Your Colombia tour will start in the innovative city of Medellín, where you will experience the best of the city with wonderful landscapes, farms, a magical colorful town, and the best of the Colombian culture. End this great experience in the crown of América, the walled city of Cartagena, you will be charmed by its colorful houses, atmosphere, culture, music, food, and beaches.

🏁 Tour Itinerary: Discover Colombia Magical Realism

Day 1: Arrive in Medellin – Welcome to Colombia

Welcome to Medellín, Colombia! You will be picked up at the airport by our prepared private transportation service and taken to your hotel. You can relax during your approximately 30-45 minutes drive to your hotel.  On the way to your hotel, your English-speaking guide can give you all the recommendations you may like in order to get the most of your stay in Colombia. Medellín is commonly known as the city of eternal spring because of its pleasant warm weather all year round. The city is surrounded by mountains and it is very clean with lush trees and beautiful flowers.

🏚️ Accommodation: Díez Hotel or similar.


Day 2: The City Of Eternal Spring & Its Story of Transformation (B, L)

Start your day visiting the “Comuna 13” (Commune 13) carrying out a historical, aesthetic, and political tour designed and executed by some street artists of the hip-hop movement of that area. Through graffiti, stories that move and inspire hope, and the search for better living conditions for the community are shown. After, a short trip by metro and Metrocable, you can see an unparalleled panoramic view of the city.
You will then enjoy typical Antioquia cuisine (Asados La 80 or Rancherito Restaurant)
In the afternoon, you will discover some of Medellin’s most known attractions including The Nutibara Hill ( a replica of a typical Antioquia village that lies at the Top) The Botanical Garden, The Explora Park, The Park of Desires, The Barefoot Park, Ruta N Innovation and Technology Center. Lastly, we will visit Botero Square where 23 outdoor bronze sculptures by Colombian Master Fernando Botero are exhibited and The Antioquia Museum.

🏚️ Accommodation: Díez Hotel or similar.


Day 3: Adventure on a Coffee Farm (B)

After you’ve had some time to enjoy breakfast at the hotel, you’ll head out for a cultural experience on an authentic working coffee farm 45 minutes from Medellin. You’ll pass through Antioquia’s gorgeous green landscape on your way to the farm. At the coffee farm, you’ll learn the entire process of making coffee from the plant to the cup and you’ll get to know the daily life of Colombian coffee cooperatives that still produce coffee in a traditional and fairway.
The coffee Finca (farm) that you visit is very typical of many small family businesses in Colombia that produce an exclusive coffee that, of course, you will get to taste. You’ll stroll through the coffee plantation as the farm manager explains the origins of coffee, starting with growing the healthiest plants through to collecting the red coffee cherries that are eventually processed into dried green coffee beans. After building up a healthy appetite from the fresh country air, you’ll sit down for a hearty and delicious traditional Colombian-style lunch.
When your appetite is satisfied, you’ll learn about the roasting process that takes the odorless green coffee bean and converts it into the rich brown bean that we all know and love; full of flavor and succulent aroma. Listen closely as the coffee farmer explains the key characteristics of a great coffee, both in scent and taste, and shares how to prepare a great cup of coffee at home.
After seeing the involved, manual process required to grow, harvest, dry, roast, grind, and then brew a cup of coffee you’ll never take this everyday drink for granted again. At the end of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to buy freshly roasted coffee straight from its source, the perfect souvenir from Colombia to share with family & friends (or drink all on your own)!

🏚️ Accommodation: Díez Hotel or similar.


Day 4: El Peñol & Guatapé (B, L)

Today, you will be going through the municipality of Peñol until reaching Guatapé, The most colorful town in Colombia. Guatapé offers a peaceful break from the city, while also featuring a stunning panoramic view of nature and the surrounding scenery from the top of its hill.
Start with the beautiful view of the reservoir that provides 30% of the energy of Colombia and has an extension of 64 km2. Visit the Rock of Guatapé which is approximately 220 meters high, and optionally with additional cost, you can climb 649 steps until you reach the viewpoint with a 360-degree view of the Guatapé reservoir and its neighboring lands.
Then, you will be transferred to Guatapé, the most colorful town in Colombia. It is also one of the most colorful towns in the world. In fact, you’d have to try pretty hard to find a street in Guatapé that wasn’t worthy of being admired and photographed!
Enjoy a walk through the streets, where a specialized guide will inform you about the history of typical houses, its ¨zocalos¨, and this unique culture.

🏚️ Accommodation: Díez Hotel or similar.


Day 5: Fly and Discover Cartagena (B)

You will be picked up at the airport by our prepared private transportation service and taken to your hotel. You can relax during your approximately 15-20 minutes drive to your hotel.

🏚️ Accommodation: Hotel La Artillería Boutique or similar.


Day 6: Discover Cartagena and Authentic Local Cuisine Party (B, D)

The reason the city is designed like a fortress is that it was the principal shipping port of gold from the New World back to Spain. The stone ramparts helped protect it from countless pirate attacks, including from the most famous of all: Sir Francis Drake. On top of this history, you will visit myriad plazas, the church and the monastery of San Pedro Claver, the Basilica Minor cathedral, and you’ll stroll along narrow cobbled streets lined with colonial houses featuring bougainvilia-draped balconies.
Visit the modern neighborhoods of Bocagrande and Manga. You will see the contrast between modern architecture and the beauty of the old houses from the twentieth century. Then, you will visit the Castle where the Spaniards sought to protect the city from the attacks of the English in the seventeenth century, “El Castillo De San Felipe de Barajas”.
The warmth and tastiness of Cartagena’s cuisines are mainly due to the generosity of the local cooks. For this experience, local families open the doors of their homes and kitchens so you can learn how to prepare firsthand the most authentic dishes of Cartagena’s recipe books: from bites to a full menu.
Step away from mainstream tours and get inside the most authentic kitchens in local neighborhoods and family homes. Take your apron out and learn how to cook like a true Cartagenian with traditional techniques in a festive ambient. A completely local experience! Connect with Cartagena and its gastronomic culture in one of the most authentic experiences possible: its heart and true flavor. Feel at home in the kitchens of family houses and add with your hand’s new flavors to your personal collection!
Prepare the most emblematic recipes of traditional cuisine. This experience is designed to discover authentic recipes.
Refreshing welcome drink (fruit-based). It will be available during the entire class.
Step by step cooking class of the recipe/ menu of your choice. The class will be guided by a traditional cook. We encourage all guests to partake in all the preparations.
Local fruit drinks. Table service.
All experiences, food, and beverages are included.

🏚️ Accommodation: Hotel La Artillería Boutique or similar.


Day 7: Majagua Island (B, L)

Indulge yourself in the warm, crystal waters of the Caribbean. You will be picked up from your hotel and taken to the Pier. The Rosario Islands are an archipelago made up of 27 islands, located 45 minutes from Cartagena in a National Park on the Colombian Caribbean coast. They are only about an hour from the beautiful city of Cartagena. Beautiful, diverse, and well worth a visit, for a day or even longer.
The Rosario Islands are an integral part of one of Colombia’s most important national parks. The only park in the country that is primarily underwater. As such, the islands and surrounding waters are remarkably well preserved and protected, meaning that you can enjoy their wonders as nature intended.
San Pedro de Majagua Island, Cartagena: Enjoy lunch at San Pedro de Majagua, located on Isla Grande, and owes its name to Pierre Daguet, a French painter who in 1955 created his house and studio there. You’ll enjoy coral beaches and a variety of fauna of the reef, ideal for relaxing and swimming.

🏚️ Accommodation: Hotel La Artillería Boutique or similar.


Day 8: Depart Cartagena (B)

It’s time to say goodbye to Colombia! Enjoy your last morning in Cartagena with a leisurely breakfast and walk along the sea. A representative will meet you at your hotel and drive you to the airport for your connecting flight home.
Come again!
