12 Day Colombia Signature
Despite a host of natural, historical, and architectural treasures, Colombia remains one of Latin America’s least explored and most misunderstood countries. This compelling itinerary sets out to change that, combining the highlights of dazzling Bogotá, the sensorial pleasures of the Quindío coffee region, magical Cartagena, and the glorious Rosario Islands into a single life-altering experience.

It all starts in Bogotá, Colombia’s vibrant capital. The best way to get to know a new place is through its food, as you’ll discover via an expert-led Colombian cooking class and a visit to the lively Paloquemao farmers’ market. Later, soak up the city’s bountiful energy on a privately guided tour of La Candelaria its signature sights, including Plaza Bolívar, Museo Botero (home to a huge collection of artworks by Fernando Botero, Colombia’s beloved artist), and the Gold Museum before taking in an incredible view of the city from the Monserrate viewpoint.

From the capital, the tour moves west into the famed Quindío coffee region. Prepare for a lively introduction to the area at Hacienda Bambusa, where you’ll be treated to a tasting of genuine Colombian aguardiente, a highly potent alcoholic beverage native to the region. Next, explore the hacienda’s grounds in search of exotic birdlife on a two-hour private hike, then get a hands-on appreciation for cacao from the property’s head chef. Finally, get an insider’s glimpse of the region’s most important export on a private coffee-and-culture tour that includes an in-depth discovery of the cultivation process at Hacienda San Alberto before visiting the lush Quindío Botanical Gardens.

Finally, head north to the edge of the Caribbean Sea and Cartagena, the romantic “Venice of Colombia.” Your first introduction to this historic and beautiful city comes as part of a private half-day architecture tour, where you’ll encounter the marvels of this UNESCO-protected city. Lastly, unwind from this busy adventure with a handful of relaxing days at an exclusive resort in the gorgeous Rosario Islands.
