COLOMBIA: cartagena and the lost city
Mysterious and beautiful Colombia is not on the top of most travel itineraries to South America. And that is why Hidden Planet Expeditions wants to take you there: to discover and photograph this hidden beauty. We start in the walled city of Cartagena, one of the most beautiful colonial cities in the world. A treasure on the Caribbean coast, Cartagena, a UNESCO heritage site, has survived countless attacks by pirates. It is also the city where writer and Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez lived for many years. From here we’ll take you to a dramatically different ecosystem via a five day hike into the magical Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and Ciudad Perdida or Lost City. An indigenous holy site, it was built 650 years earlier than Peru's Machu Picchu and was only discovered in 1972. We then descend through dense jungle to the white sand beaches of the Parque Tairona on the Caribbean to soak up the sun, have a cocktail and relax. It is a rare opportunity to forge a trail through this vastly unexplored paradise.
