The tour "Colombia: Culture, Coffee & Caribbean" starts from Bogota and ends in Cartagena. It is a cultural, religious and historic sites trip that takes 15 days taking you through Cocora Valley, Tayrona National Park, Alto De Letras and 6 other destinations in Colombia. "Colombia: Culture, Coffee & Caribbean" is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

The majesty of Colombia lies in its contrasts. Here, cities moving at a blur meet time-stood-still colonial towns and ancient archaeological sites yet to fully reveal their secrets. It has the biodiversity to match: bottle-green hills, tropical river valleys, ochre desert, coastal forest and rippling mountains. And there’s a culture so deep it can only be fully appreciated in person. Join this highly varied adventure to experience the many faces of Colombia: navigating vibrant Bogotá, tropical Cali and colonial Cartagena; staying at a traditional hacienda in the coffee region; discovering the enigmatic San Agustín archaeological park; exploring the wilds of Tayrona National Natural Park; and meeting the indigenous Arhuaco community.
