A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
The Capital of Cool
Arrival in Bogotá. The city is nothing like you had imagined. As is often the case with Latin American capitals, the image painted in the media and in popular culture is a very narrow, distorted view of reality. Bogotá is a city that is reinventing itself and embracing the best of its past, while actively building a bright future. Art, architecture, and a vibrant optimism all speak of the modern Bogotá. Solemn buildings and colourful traditions, are part of a city with deep roots. It is an exciting project, and you get to leave your mark, as you paint your own mural with a renowned street artist. In the evening, a trendy, young couple who know their way around the gastronomic scene serve as your guides, and they show you the true face of Bogotá!
Un cafecito por amor de Dios!
Colombia is famous for its coffee, and it is very likely you have chased the morning grogginess away with a Colombian brew. Your excursion into the coffee region soon turns into a delicate exploration of different coffees, as you tour breathtaking haciendas, some of which keep traditional coffee-making alive, some other that have embraced modern methods. The lush nature that surrounds the coffee estates is the perfect scenario to ride the soft-gaited Colombian Paso Fino, another of the country’s treasures. Read more
A Taste of Salsa
From Andean capitals and misty coffee haciendas, you make your way to Cartagena, a port city with blue Caribbean waters, colonial buildings from the Spanish era, and a distinctive quality one can only call… flavour! You spend your mornings snorkelling and surfing in the clear waters. The afternoons are perfect to walk the colourful streets and discover ateliers, art galleries and boutiques that charm even the most demanding travellers. In the evenings, well… you storm the dance floor to the rhythm of salsa, because dancing the night away is almost obligatory in one of the happiest places on Earth.
