Colombia’s Highlights Trip

COL-43 / 10-day trip

Colombia’s Highlights 3

This 10-day trip covers some of the most famous and beautiful areas of Colombia. First we will visit Bogotá and enjoy the buzz of this vibrant capital. We will also take you on a day trip to experience the highlands of Bogotá and to visit the Legendary Guatavita Lake (El Dorado Legend) and the beautiful Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira. Then we will experience the heart of Colombia, the “Coffee Triangle”, with its green mountains and valleys, coffee farms, beautiful colonial villages and the Cocora Valley. Afterwards, we will fly to the Caribbean coast to experience a different Colombia, with beaches, salsa rhythms and the colorful and charming Cartagena. The last part of the trip includes a stay within the Tayrona Natural Park. With the rainforest-covered mountains reaching the white beaches, this is a perfect way to relax and enjoy the Caribbean after an very exciting program.

The program includes all transfers and there will be two domestic flights, meaning that we will avoid full-day bus trips. We stay in good quality hotels, and even experience staying at a traditional coffee farm, where coffee is produced (and served) every day. Andes World Travel can offer this excellent program at very competitive prices.

The tour begins in Bogotá and ends in Santa Marta, depending on your further plans.
