Day 3
Bogot√° Foodie Day

Send your palate on a foodie adventure through Bogota’s historic streets, market stalls, and decades-old bakeries. You’ll take in just as much architectural eye candy and cultural context as you will local cuisine by the end of this four-hour route. With every stop along the way dishing up a heaping portion of traditional flavor and ingredients, captivating conversations with locals, and glimpses of Bogota culture. The afternoon and evening will be left free for you to explore the city at your own pace

Day 4
Salento + Coffee Region

This morning we'll catch our flight to Colombia's stunning coffee region. We'll arrive in this UNESCO heritage declared region in the early afternoon. The afternoon is free to enjoy your cozy accommodations or walk around the charming Salento town. In the evening, we will enjoy night life the Colombian way -- with Tejo and beer! In Tejo, players throw steel discs towards a metal ring that is rigged with gunpowder which explode on impact. This beloved sport is sure to be a fun and cultural experience. Meals: breakfast

Day 5
Cocora Valley Hike

Get ready for an active but very worthwhile day in the Cocora Valley. The group will hike for approximately 3 hours along moderate trails in the valley to appreciate the towering Wax Palm, Colombia's national tree. Surrounded by a beautiful cloud forest landscape, you will be in awe with the natural splendor of this region. We will then head to the colorful town of Filandia to enjoy a delicious gourmet lunch, walk around the town, and appreciate the colorful local handicrafts. Meals: breakfast and lunch

Day 6
Coffee Tasting and Cooking Class

Learn about Colombia's most important export, coffee, from a local family that will share with us all the traditions and processes behind a tasty coffee cup. You'll follow the entire process, truly seeing what goes into coffee production from bean to cup. Afterwards, we'll enjoy a cooking class with a local family. We'll eat our delicious home-cooked meal for lunch before catching our flight to Cartagena in the early evening. Meals: breakfast and lunch

Day 7
Cartagena’s Old City

Cartagena's colonial walled city feels like you've stepped back in time. The old city is best explored on foot, so we'll start our day with a historic walking tour. Find Instagrammable backdrops in front of Cartagena's colorful facades, blooming bougainvillea bushes, and the historic city bell tower. After we'll sit down for a feast of traditional Coste√Īo dishes¬†prepared following recipes passed down through the generations and¬†meet the female duo behind it all. The evening is free.¬†Meals: breakfast, lunch

Day 8
Rosario Islands

Today we'll travel 1 hour by speedboat to the amazing Bendita Beach on the Rosario Islands archipelago, the perfect environment to unwind after a busy few days exploring Colombia. Relax on the beach, sip on fruity drinks and swim in the crystal clear waters. We'll return back to Cartagena for an evening rum tasting tour. Sip your way through the fascinating origin story behind the liquor of the Caribbean. With chocolate as your palette cleanser, this tale runs eight rum samplers deep in a cozy Getsemani bar and leaves you with a newfound appreciation for any rum-based cocktails in your future. Meals: breakfast

Day 9
Indigenous Heritage in Cartagena

Travel beyond the city¬†walls to meet the women behind the Ninha weaving¬†workshop.

Day 10
¬°Hasta pronto!
