ITINERARY INSPIRATION

Your tour begins in the colonial port city of Cartagena. Situated on the Caribbean coastline, Cartagena is famous for its walled old town, where you can wander the historical districts of El Centro and San Diego and see examples of its colonial architecture.
Departing from your hotel, you will travel along the Caribbean coastline to Los Naranjos, which overhangs the Caribbean sea and borders the Tayrona National Park. On arrival, enjoy some downtime in your unique eco lodgings or relax by the hotel pool.

Cartagena to Los Naranjos

Today you will tour some of the highlights of Tayrona National Park. Home to a wide array of mammals and birds, including the extremely endangered cotton-topped tamarin, Tayrona National Park stretches over 150 square kilometres of coastline and features rainforests, rivers and beaches.
You will visit the coconut palm lined white sandy beaches of Canaveral and Arrecifes on an ecological walk to Piscinita, a safe beach for swimming before returning to your hotel.

Tayrona National Park

Today is a free day where you can choose to relax at your hotel and enjoy a cocktail by the pool, take a hike along the riverside of the Mendihuaca or go swimming, snorkelling or surfing on Los Naranjos beach.
Alternatively, you can take an excursion back to Tayrona National Park and hike to Cabo San Juan or visit Pueblito Chayrama, where archaeological ruins lie. These are remnants of the Tayrona people, who once inhabited this area and built their ancient capital, Cuidad Perdida (Lost City) in the jungle nearby.

Free Day

You will be collected from your hotel for your onward journey from Santa Marta Airport.

Sustainability

Being environmentally accountable is a crucial part of our organisation. Chimu is currently striving towards using less paper, taking several initiatives to do so and tracking our progress along the way. Our goal: A paperless organisation. For this reason, all information given to you will be sent electronically. We encourage those who choose to travel with us to support our aspirations and actions and ask that you reconsider printing out documentation. To view these documents, you can download them to your iPad or portable computer before and during your trip.

Chimu is passionate and dedicated to sustainability measures and understands the crucial part sustainability plays within the tourism industry.

We use local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprint. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting. Our guides are all highly qualified (most with university degrees) or equip with many years of experience and are paid above the standard wage. Whether it be our knowledgeable local guides, locally produced meals or the transport on tour, we do not use imported goods when local products are available. We aim to minimise our impact on the environment and give as much back as possible to the communities we work in.

While visiting the many national parks, heritage sites, museums and landmarks our travellers are encouraged to explore whilst remaining culturally aware and sensitive. We further encourage you to buy appropriate souvenirs and discourage the buying of anything wrongfully made or taken from the environment i.e. shells and endangered species products. Information on how you can be environmentally conscious, and travel responsibly will be made available in our Travellers Guides and provided during your travels by guides and staff.
