Wow - this was a challenging hike! Not so much the terrain, definitely due to the hot weather. Putting the heat, sweat and fatigue to one side - this hike is unique and rewarding. Along the route there is lots to see and the destination is mind blowing! Our team (Stiwen, Brayan & Pinnochio) were attentive and did everything possible to make this a safe & memorable trip. The side journeys on this itinerary were all worthwhile and enjoyable. It was just the two of us for the duration of this trip and at all times we felt safe and everything ran without a hitch.
incredibly responsive and attentive

"This was our first trip to South America and my relatives were apprehensive. So I decided to call on this tour operator and I have absolutely no regrets. Emmeline, with her professionalism and kindness, was the pillar of the realization of my travel project, thanks to all her recommendations (activities or places). Her agency was incredibly responsive and attentive (always reachable and on the lookout for flight delays or other things). The guides were passionate and very kind as well as really knowledgeable, making every step of my trip unforgettable. Thanks again to Emmeline and the entire team for transforming my project into an unforgettable travel experience in the best possible conditions."
Great experience!

Cartagena - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Visit Cartagena to take a dip in the waters of the Caribbean coast
Islas del Rosario is an archipelago located off the coast of Colombia around 100 km away from Cartagena

Tour Highlights

  • Perched atop the Hill of San Lazaro, Castillo San Felipe de Barajas is a massive fortress that dates back to 17th Dominating the city’s skyline, it represents one of Cartagena’s major points of interest.
  • Visit the Palace of Inquisition and you will get to learn all about the brutal methods local authorities used to clamp down on heretic practices in colonial Columbia.
  • Iglesia de San Pedro Claver is one of Cartagena’s most beautiful churches. This opulent building was founded by the Jesuits in the first half of the 17th
  • The 150-meter-tall La Popa hill will reveal some of the most spectacular views of the town. This is also the place where you will find Convento de la Popa, a religious complex known for its gorgeous cloister.

Travel Tips

  • It would be a sin to visit Cartagena without taking a dip in the aquamarine waters of the Caribbean coast. A perfect getaway to do just that are Rosario Islands, which lie about 100 kilometers off the coast from Cartagena and are famed for their pristine white beaches.
  • If you want to avoid the crowds, make sure to visit the city outside of the local holiday season (around Christmas in December and Holy Week in spring), which is when most Colombians go on vacation.
  • Cartagena is notorious for stubborn street vendors, so make sure to practice how to say “no” firmly (and in Spanish).
