Day 1 | USA - Bogota, Colombia  

Board your US flight destined for Bogota today. Your flight may include international stopovers.

Day 2 | Bogota - See & Taste Tour  D

Upon arrival at Bogota airport, meet your representative and transfer to your hotel in the city center. With a population of 8 million, Colombia's capital bursts with contrasts: with cosmopolitan commerce and shopping rubbing shoulders with grinding poverty, and modern high-rises overshadowing colonial churches.

Enjoy a tour of this intriguing city to get your first tastes of local life and food. Delve into the Zona Rosa district of classy restaurants and bars, and visit La Plaza de Andres, a gourmet food court specializing in Colombian dishes. Treat your taste buds to ‘arepa de choclo'—local corncakes served with cheese—and a delicious home-produced beer. Then, visit 93rd Street Park and the colonial enclave of Usaquen, whose cobbled streets are lined with brightly colored houses and bohemian eateries. Lastly, stop to try ‘roscon,' a popular ring-shaped cake filled with guava paste or cream.

Day 3 | Bogota - Zipaquira - Bogota  B,L,DH

A day of discovery beckons today, starting with a trip to Zipaquira, home to a salt mine into which is carved a Salt Cathedral. Descend into the mine to admire the surreal cathedral and 14 nearby salt-cut chapels. After emerging back into daylight, visit the picturesque town of Zipaquira before returning to Bogota and exploring La Candelaria—a photogenic pocket of cobbled lanes and colorful houses. Admire the monuments and palaces situated around the Plaza de Boliva—the city's old heart— and visit the famous Gold Museum, which houses over 30,000 gold pieces, and the Botero Museum, which houses one of Latin America's most important international art collections.

Day 4 | Bogota - Medellin  B,DH

Transfer to the airport for your flight to Medellin, Bogota's second largest metropolis and dubbed the ‘City of Eternal Spring' for its pleasant climate. After check-in at your hotel, explore this up-and-coming city on a guided tour. Soak in the lively downtown area and must-sees such as Botero Plaza and Berrio Park, and ride a cable car up to Santo Domingo. This formerly no-go area is now transformed into a vibrant and progressive local community, and boasts spectacular views over the city below.

Day 5 | Medellin - Coffee Experience - Medellin  B,L,D

Coffee fans will love today: with a visit to a typical Colombian coffee farm on the agenda. Leave Medellin and head through lush countryside to a traditional family-owned hacienda that produces its own brand of this dark gold. Stroll the coffee fields to see how the beans are grown and harvested, and after a rustic lunch, tour the facilities to learn how the coffee is processed, and discover the secrets behind the perfect cup.

Day 6 | Medellin - Guatape - Penol - Medellin  B,L,D

Drink in the gorgeous scenery as you venture into the Eastern Highlands of Antioquia on route to the Penol Boulder: a 200-meter-high stone monolith with a 740-step staircase to its top. Climb the rock for fabulous views over the surrounding green mountains and lakes, and spend some time in the pretty town of Guatape, famous for its vividly hued houses painted with bas-reliefs. A boat ride on Lake Guatape and a local lunch beside the lakeside provide the finishing touches before your return to Medellin.

Day 7 | Medellin - Cartagena  B,DH

Today, transfer to the airport and fly to Cartagena de Indias: your base for the next three days. On arrival, transfer to your hotel in this beautiful city—the first Spanish colony on the South American mainland—and centered on a walled old city changed little by time.

Day 8 | Cartagena  B,D

Following breakfast, enjoy a tour of Cartagena's main landmarks. After a visit to La Popa Monastery to absorb its stunning city views, discover the faded ramparts of the 17th-century San Felipe Castle, amble around the Las Bovedas dungeons-turned-gift-shops, and explore the delightful baroque Church of San Pedro Claver—all among other sights and as your guide shares insights into the city's rich past.

Day 9 | Cartagena  B,L,D

Dive deeper into historical Cartagena with a walking tour around and inside its UNESCO-listed Old Town: a maze of 16th- and 17th-century Spanish architecture, narrow lanes and wooden-balconied houses. Roam the cobbled passages to soak in each distinct little area, and admire colorful squares such as the Plaza de Bolivar—boasting a statue of South America's independence leader, Simon Bolivar—the Plaza de San Pedro, Plaza de Los Coches, and Plaza Santo Domingo, the latter dominated by the lovely orange-painted Church of Santo Domingo.

After lunch, enjoy free time to explore independently, perhaps shopping for souvenirs or people-watching from an open-air café. This evening, join your like-minded group for a farewell dinner at a restaurant.

Day 10 | Cartagena - USA  B

Say goodbye to Colombia with a transfer to the airport for your return flight to the US.
