CITY TO COAST TOUR

Big cities to warm beaches!

With 15 days to spare, we will cover Colombia from the electric cities all the way to the immaculate beaches with the City to Coast Tour! Our journey starts in Medellin where we depart for a 740 step climb to the top of “The Rock” in the colorful pueblo of Guatape. Then, we return to Medellin to explore the sights and smells of the city, before traveling north to the colonial city of Cartagena.

The next stop is Taganga where you will meander through the local beaches and forests with indigenous people of the regional tribe! Refresh in the Caribbean coast of Costeño Beach and make your way into Tayrona National Park for more adventure! After we surf and get plenty of beach time, we will venture into the lush surroundings of the Minca wild. With the diverse landscapes and a variety of activities, this tour shows you the best of both worlds!

Medellin:
What better way to set off on a proper tour of Colombia than to start in the lush and electric city of Medellin? Not only does the history of Medellin make this a prominent stop and a must see but the climate alone is said to be perfect, which is why they call it the city of eternal spring! We’ll take off on a tour of one of the most colorful communities on the planet, Comuna trece or Community 13. This neighborhood was once rated the most dangerous neighborhood in the world. Now, through the influence of symbolic art, the community is a peaceful place for people to visit and witness the change first hand. We have plenty of options on how to spend our days in Medellin whether you prefer museums, riding the metro cable, hiking through the national park, visiting the botanical gardens or exploring downtown.

Guatape/Medellin:
Today we rise early to roam about the countryside until we arrive at the colorful pueblo of Guatape! Just two hours out of Medellin, the pueblo of Guatape is located in the vast and incredible man-made Peñol-Guatapé Reservoir. We’ll make our way up the 740 steps to the top of “The Rock” for a one-of-a-kind view of the bubbling terrain that remains in the reservoir! Refresh with some of Colombia’s best coffee while wandering the carefully embellished architecture and cobblestone streets before heading back to Medellin. After the tour we’ll have free time to explore the city and it’s hotspots before regrouping for food, drinks then depart for Cartagena!

Cartagena:
After an early arrival, hostel check-in and a quick breakfast, we dive head first into the colonial town of Cartagena. Stroll through the colorful and photogenic streets of the fortress before we take off to the vibrant waters of Playa Azul for some well earned beach time! Bring sunscreen, your favorite swimsuit and explore a little slice of the Caribbean before heading back to the mainland!

Taganga:
After departing the colonial town of Cartagena, we will arrive at the backpacker’s hidden gem known as Taganga! Soak up the small fishing village vibes by relaxing poolside or whilst roaming the sizzling beaches. Not only are we going to get more sand on our feet, we’re also going to hike with a local tribe and tube back down the Rio Don Diego where the forest meets the sea and the wildlife is as colorful as it is playful! Bring the swimsuits, sunscreen and maybe watch a few introductory surf lessons before we go!

Costeño/ Tayrona National Park/Costeño:
After departing from the fishing village of Taganga, we’ll have a good taste of the golden beaches of Costeño before we embark on the lush landscapes of Tayrona National Park! The clear waters, coconut tree lining beaches is the ideal backdrop while snorkeling with the colorful Caribbean fish and makes Tayrona an absolute must do when in season! After trekking and swimming in Tayrona we’ll return to Costeño to chase sun rays for one more day.

Santa Marta/Minca/Santa Marta:
This may be the last stretch of the tour but there is still plenty of time to rack up more Colombian experiences! Wander and venture about the streets of Santa Marta before venturing off to the mountain village of Minca! We will explore the village, hike through the nature landscape complete with waterfalls and massive hammocks that bares amazing views! After returning to Santa Marta, take in more mist from the Caribbean Sea while exploring the port town. There is always time to create more memories with your new travel buds so soak up the sun and enjoy your last day on the tour!

The City to coast tour wraps up at 9am hrs on day 15. We highly suggest booking an extra night and fly out the next day to allow plenty of time to relax, pack and catch your flight. We can assist with post tour accommodation and transportation if need be.
