A TASTE OF COLOMBIA
Be ready to delight your senses and stimulate your taste buds with this delicious Colombian culinary excursion. The food throughout the country is as diverse as its people and scenery. Imagine the sweetness of the Cauca Valley mixed with the flavors of the Pacific, the world’s best coffee, locally sourced slow food, tropical fruits, and unique Caribbean cuisine. All of this and more awaits you on this journey of a lifetime.
Upon your arrival to Cali, Colombia, the World Capital of Salsa dancing, one of our English speaking staff will greet you at the airport and bring you to your hotel in the mountains overlooking the beautiful Cauca Valley. You will spend the next three days exploring, reveling in the sights and the rhythm of the valley, and adventuring in the wild Pacific.
From there you will be transported to the acclaimed coffee region where you’ll have your own private suite in the cloud forest and soak in natural hot springs below the snowcapped mountains. Enjoy charming colonial towns, cool climates, freshly harvested coffee, and the hospitality of the “paisa” people. Hiking through the famous wax palms, the oldest and tallest in the world, is just one of the highlights of this trip.
You’ll spend the second half of your journey on the Caribbean Coast of Colombia soaking up the sun in Tayrona Park and historic Cartagena de Indias. In each of your destinations, you can look forward to gourmet meals prepared to your liking, eco-friendly housing with spectacular views, and the best English speaking guides in the country.
If you fall in love with Magical Colombia and choose to extend your time, the Rosary Islands are a great place to relax on the beach, the Lost City makes for a great trek into the jungle, or you can even adventure into the Guajira Desert. Remember that we are a bespoke agency and that we are happy to customize a tour for you!
