The trip to Colombia was comfortable and speedy. We traveled with Expreso Brasilia. In Colombia, we spent our time in Ciudad Perdida (but after the first day we came back home), Parque Tayrona, Pueblito, and in Santa Marta (nice city).

In order to enter in Tayrona Park, you need the vaccine against yellow fever. In Cabo San Juan, there are no rooms available, but you can rent a hammock. There is a lot of space for camping. From Cabo, you can walk through the forest to Pueblito. The walk is on rocks and it takes one hour and a half. Pueblito has some terrazas (where Tayrona built houses) and some kogi live there. Ask before taking photos of kogi.
