  • Cartagena: Snorkel, Mangroves and Playa Blanca Tour

    Get picked up from your accommodation at 7:30 AM in an air-conditioned bus. Meet your guide who will provide all the details about your upcoming adventure and the route.

After 1 hour of enjoyable snorkeling, continue the tour into the mangroves to see birds, iguanas, and other species. Discover the fascinating landscapes of the island and the life of the native species who inhabit this magical ecosystem. At 1 PM, head back to Playa Blanca to enjoy a delicious lunch with options of fish, chicken, or vegetarian. Once you've eaten, spend some time swimming in the clear waters or relaxing on the beautiful white sand beach. At 3:30 PM, board the return bus which will drop you off back at your hotel.

    This tour was one of my favorite tours while in Colombia. I had never done snorkeling before so I really enjoyed it. The tour was great. Daniel (bus guide) Ivan (boat guide) both did a great job. They promised to send me all the pictures they took and they did the only thing I’d recommend for anyone planning to attend this tour is to make sure your tour guide sprinkles some bread before they snap your pictures to make sure they capture fish around you otherwise you will end up with just a picture of yourself under water :( I think that was the only downside for me. The food was great, I literally ate everything on my plate (went with the fish option). I definitely recommend this tour.

  • From Medellín: Hacienda Nápoles Theme Park Day Trip

    Enjoy Pablo Escobar's former farm that has been transformed into a theme park to be enjoyed by everyone from kids to adults. When entering Hacienda Nápoles, you will encounter a world of fun with pools for the family, lazy river, Safari with wild animals, Dinosaur replicas, bird world, African museum, and much more. You will also be shown Escobar's main house, known as La Mayoría. Visit the Memorial Museum, where you will learn about the life of the drug lord and see the first airplane he used to send drugs abroad. Explore different wildlife habitats and be amazed as you encounter tigers, elephants and other creatures from the wild. The tour will last throughout the whole day as it is a long way from Medellin, but expect lots of fun! There will be breakfast included and plenty of places to eat lunch at the park.

    Excellent trip, very well organized. Even though I don't speak Spanish and joined a Spanish-language tour, it was worthwhile to join for transportation to Hacienda Napoles in a comfortable bus, with good meal stops. The guide spoke some English, so I was able to follow along, but generally relied on my own research and park maps to get around. It would have been much trickier to arrange independently, so I was glad to have pick-up and drop-off by private bus. It's a very long day, but plenty to see and do at Hacienda Napoles.
