Description of Colombia 20 day tour, colonial cities to Caribbean coast
Everything is tweak-able, giving you the freedom to build a unique and personal trip for your chosen date. Upgrade your accommodation for all - or just part - of your trip, slow down the pace with few extra nights here and there or add a few more active adventures along the way
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetProtecting the incredible wildlife and delicate ecology is at the forefront of our minds and so we want our customers to feel that they have been a part of that mission. We encourage our customers to visit Tayrona National Park, a place with a unique eco-system, before spending time on the Caribbean Coast. They can enjoy a few different hikes and trails and explore the rainforests rich flora. Rangers at the park talk to the visitors about the park, its ecosystem and conservation objectives and happily answer any questions about Tayrona.
During this trip, we offer a lot of activities that are either done on foot or by bike, to help make your holidays more sustainable. A lot of the places on this itinerary can also be connected via public buses, and we encourage our travellers to use this option where possible to reduce carbon footprint and help make your holiday even more sustainable.
PeopleIn Colombia we work with guides and drivers local to each area, which means travellers can take advantage of their local knowledge of the areas visited. This benefits not only our customers but also directly supports the local guides and drivers as well as their families. In Medellin, our travellers enjoy a city walk while being accompanied by the locals. It's a fantastic way to get ins and outs of the way of life in the city and have the most local experience possible.
We encourage our customers to support local restaurants, local shops and stalls to buy food, drinks and souvenirs. We also make sure that all the accommodation we use is locally run and benefits the community by providing jobs in the areas. Quite often the B&Bs we book are a family business, so the guests get to spend more time with the locals and learn about their culture first hand.
