Some serious food!
We're talking the freshest seafood, organic coffee and craft beers in Colombia. Que rico! We’ll hit all of the foodie spots, from local fisherman to the hippest spots in Cartagena.
We’ll be staying in a UNESCO World Heritage city. Once walled to block pirate attacks, our groups will now have full access to the best art, music, food and parties that this super cute town has to offer. From street art walks to open bar fiestas on Colombian party buses. Yes, we’re doin’ it all!

We’ll hit the streets with local artists to show you the best in street art and local galleries.
We travel up the Caribbean coast, heading to our beach side lodgings outside the stunningly beautiful Tayrona National Park, where the ocean meets the rain forest and the world's highest coastal mountain range. We’ll be horseback riding to private beaches and taking small fishing boats to nearby islands by day. At night we go to sleep in our eco lodge with the roar of the ocean and the wind blowing through the palm trees.
Coffee, craft beer and waterfalls…
We’ll be taking a day trip up the local mountains to a coffee growing region. Sample the local coffee, and wait, it’s ALSO a craft beer hotbed?! Well, then we’ll taste local craft beer before hiking to a waterfall. Of course, we’ll stop for a swim. All the elements of a perfect day!
