    Itinerary

    Day 1Bogotá, Colombia

    !¡! Welcome to Colombia !¡!

    Today, your driver will be waiting to collect you from the airport and take you to your hotel.

    There are no activities planned for today, so just relax and drink plenty of water to help you adjust to
    the altitude.

     

    Day 2La Candelaria and Monserrate

    In the morning, you’ll be taken on a guided excursion to the most important historical locations
    within La Candelaria. Stops include the spot where rebellion against the Spanish was first planned;
    the Palace of Justice; Plaza Bolivar, and many more!

    Once you have visited these beautiful sites it will be time for you to ascend to the great height of
    10,341 ft (3152m) and the summit of Monserrate; almost 2,000 feet higher than Bogotá.

    For this climb, you have the choice of taking either the teleferico (aerial tramway) or the funicular.
    Here you’ll have time to wander through the artisan markets, visit a beautiful​ 17th-century monastery
    and enjoy some of the most spectacular panoramic views of the capital city of this great nation.

    Day 3The Amazon Jungle Day 1

    You’ll be collected from the airport and be taken on a short drive through Leticia to the wharf, where
    you’ll catch a boat up the Amazon River to your lodgings for the next 3 nights.

    You’ll be arriving in the mid-afternoon after a boat ride of approximately 2 hours, and in time for a bit
    of relaxation before dinner.

    Following dinner when it’s nice and dark you’ll venture out in a night safari into the jungle, in search
    of ​tarantulas, giant insects, mammals, and different Amazonian fauna and flora.

    Day 4The Amazon Jungle Day 2

    Enjoy a good breakfast before spending a day hiking into the ​rainforest and learning about the local
    plants and animals!

    After lunch, you’ll visit a native community of​ Mocagua and the Maikuchiga Monkey Sanctuary and
    Rehabilitation Center​, where you’ll have a close-up view of a number of native primates.

    Afterward, head back to the eco-lodge for a bit of relaxation before a wonderful dinner.

    Then, go in search of caimans!

    Day 5Amazon Jungle Day 3

    Start the morning with a delicious breakfast followed by another boat cruise in search of​ pink and
    gray dolphins​, which are unique to the Amazon region.

    Next, head to Puerto Nariño for lunch, followed by a visit to Black Water Lake to see some amazing
    different bird species and more dolphin spotting, plus a chance to go for a swim. Don’t forget your
    swimsuit!

    eco-lodge for dinner.

    Day 6Back to Reality

    Following an early morning breakfast, you’ll be taken by boat back to Leticia and onto the airport for
    the next part of your Colombian Adventure.

    you’ll be taken to your hotel to check-in and relax in your new settings.

    Day 7Medellín

    culture, history, and local traditions.

    Combined with this tour you’re also going to enjoy an extraordinary tour through Comuna 13. Once a
    place unsafe for the police, this is now a hub for tourism with amazing murals and graffiti covering
    the street walls. Along with this you’ll enjoy wonderful views and ride the outdoor escalators.

    Your tour will be finishing up around 2 pm, which will give you the remainder of the day free to
    explore.

    Day 8What a Lake & Rock

    You’ll enjoy a beautiful drive through the scenery of Antioquia towards Guatape Rock. On the way,
    you’ll be stopping at a replica of Old Peñol’s town plaza. The original town was actually sunk and is
    now at the bottom of Lake Guatape. The only piece still visible is the spiral from the church tower.

    Next on today’s adventure will be La Pierda (​The Rock or better know as Guatape Rock​). This is
    simply a wonderful and huge stone standing tall and overlooking Lake Guatape far below. Once here
    you’ll have the opportunity to climb the 740 steps up to the very top, with breathtaking views every

    step of the way. (please note this is optional, and you will also receive amazing views without
    climbing the rock.)

    Following this, you’ll explore the colorful town of Guatape itself and stop for a spot of lunch at one of
    the many restaurants.

    Day 9!¡! The Pacific Coast !¡!

    On arrival to Nuquí you’ll be collected from the airport and taken directly to the marina for your boat
    ride to your home for the next 2 nights. Set in an amazing scene and just a short stroll to the water’s
    edge, this is an idyllic location to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

    Following lunch, you’ll be going out in search of some of the many ​humpback whales​ that visit every
    year between the months of May and November (best months July to October).

    On your return, you’ll enjoy an easy 30 min walk to the Cascada del Amor (The waterfall of Love)
    where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in this peaceful location.

    their baby that will be swimming nearby​. You’ll be enjoying 2 hours out on the ocean before heading
    back to the eco-lodge for another fresh lunch.

    Following lunch, it’ll be time to visit some wonderful thermal hot springs. Once here you’ll soak in the
    pools and relax in this amazing dream-like setting. You’ll then venture back to the eco-lodge in time
    for a beautiful sunset and another wonderful dinner.
