dreaming of our next trip in colombia in january16 to feb 23
we are a 57 and 53 couple who like music, beer,dancing, strolling around nice towns ,walking in nature but not as fit as walking more than 4-5 hours,we like historical towns and places but not very fan of museams,fun of carribean sea colour. And as international airtickets are expensive try to backpack the rest.
here is my first travel plan
Day1:late arrive in Popayan
Day$-6 bus to San augustin
I am traveling to Colombia, then Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, and while it seems all countries do not need the yellow fever shot, CDC says that if you are coming from a country with the risk of yellow fever (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia all have risks) then you are supposed to get the shot. We are flying from China and since we are traveling to each of the listed countries, we have to get the shot, correct?
I also read an old blog post that you can get the yellow fever shot for…
I've got a couple random question about all of the above places in and around the Santa Marta area.
I've got about nine days or so, a few of which I need to chill out and get some work done (on my laptop). The way I see it, I've got time to do the hike to Perdida and visit Tayrona, or visit Tayrona and do some other things, like visit Minca and tube down the Palomino river. Is Ciudad Perdida a "must do"? I'm big into hiking and adventure, so it seems like it might appeal to me.
We're traveling very soon to Colombia for 17 days with a 4 months baby and a 2,5 years toddler. We would love some help with the itinerary considering our 3 main interests: city, nature and beach. So here is our first plan:
Bogotá - 3 nights (arriving on friday afternoon, leaving on monday)
? - 2 nights
Cartagena - 3 nights
Isla Grande (or other beach) - 7 nights
Bogotá - 1 night (before flying back home)
So a few questions:
- visit the Zona Cafetera for the remaining 2 days? where…
Just wondering if anyone has explored the islands outside of Cartagena and would recommend one or the other? I would love to find a hostel on the beach or at least nearby and just want to relax a day or two. I'm not necessarily wanting to dive but am open to it if others say its a must do.
Thank you for any info :) its greatly appreciated!
We are two students from Europe who would like to go on a Amazonas Tour close to Leticia.
We want to go from 14.5.-18.5.2015 with Salaventour Tours for 4 days/3 nights. The thing is, for only two people it is quite expensive, the bigger the group the cheaper it gets!
For more details please contact us ! =)
Thanks in advance!
I'd love some help developing an itinerary for three weeks in Colombia, July 26-August 16. Here are some details:
We are two adults in our late 40s, reasonably fit, and our daughters, 12 and 15.
We chose Colombia in part because we wanted to be off the beaten tourist track a bit, so, while we're open to one or two really remarkable traditional tourist sites, that's not our goal.
We're not city people -- for the most part, we expect to fly in and out of cities, and hit the road as soon…
29 yo female travelling to the North of Colombia this upcoming week (May 4-12). Wanted to try to make it all the way to Guajira, but heard it was challenging. Let me know if you would be interested in joining in any part of this trip! Should be awesome!
We looked over the listings in LP's and FootPrint's guides and some of the online listings, and the best seemed to be Dreamers and La Brisa Loca. The Dreamers location in Palomino looked more appealing, mainly because of the beach, but looking closer, it's reviewed as being quite remote with a beach unsafe for a swim. The Dreamers in Santa Marta seems to have no beach and a pool only somewhat better than the quite small one at La Brisa Loca. Is there no reasonably price place in or near Santa…
