Barichara and the Caribbean tailor made holiday in Colombia
Description of Barichara and the Caribbean tailor made holiday in Colombia
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetColombia is home to a diverse range of wildlife, we pay special attention so that we do not disturb any wild animals, birds, or plants in their natural habitat. Naturally, of course, we do not touch unnecessarily any fauna or any living entity. We reduce noise and commotion where possible. We are particularly pleased when our travelers do not leave any trace of ever having been there.
Our staff guides are experienced in conservation and environmental issues. We transfer their knowledge to our guests so that they learn how to reduce their footprint while traveling to Colombia. We encourage our suppliers and guides to minimize plastic waste in all areas. We often even pick up trash left by other travelers on their tours, which we deposit only in places where sorting and recycling of waste are possible.
When exploring natural areas such as the National Park Chicamocha, Tayrona National Natural Park, and Rosario Islands, we choose activities that have a low impact on the environment. This includes hiking, swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. We avoid activities that can cause damage to the environment or disrupt wildlife, such as motorized water sports or off-road vehicles.
On this trip, we will be visiting locations of high importance in natural aspects such as the Rosario Islands which are surrounded by protected reefs, and Tayrona Park in The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta; the highest coastal mountain in the world. This Park offers extraordinary beaches, rivers, and dry forests. We care about the conservation of water and marine life so we create awareness in our guests so that our beaches and resorts remain clean and we can continue to offer unforgettable experiences.
PeopleAll the partners with whom we collaborate on our tours, or through our office and internet business, have their base in Colombia.
We almost entirely work with smaller local businesses or families with whom we want to establish a long-term relationship, without intermediaries. This gives our guests a unique insight into each destination and with us, they travel and think like the locals. Our primary concern with tourism in Colombia is to ensure that there is only a positive impact on local communities and culture.
Our travelers are escorted by experienced and well-trained local guides who know the area thoroughly. In Taironaka while visiting this archelogy site, guides work hand by hand with the indigenous people, being that bridge of communication to understand the significance of this location to not only the ancestral history of the Kogui indigenous but that of all of Colombia. Meeting these kindhearted people is an experience in itself, and while here you’ll also receive an “aseguranza” which will safeguard you for all your future travels. Ensuring a Kogui spirit will help and guide you into the future.
Heritage preservation is everything for a culture, it helps us preserve our identity, heritage sites circulate wealth within the local economy, and it gives opportunities to all. We will have an in-depth tour of the Jewel of Colombia, the magical UNESCO heritage-listed city of Cartagena de Indias Colombia, and you’ll be visiting the first city founded in Colombia; Santa Marta, being important in the history of the country, therefore it has an outstanding historical center with colonial architecture and buildings declared cultural property.
