Lost City

 From USD 660 per person in low season and USD 755 in high season (Holy Week, Holidays, Holiday Week) | 6 NIGHTS / 7 DAYS

Are you looking for an adventure trip? Ciudad Perdida disappeared in the tropical jungle more than 500 years ago and was only discovered again in 1970. Deep in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is this pre-Hispanic wonder that is only accessible on foot after a three-day hike. On the way you will cross rivers, waterfalls and indigenous communities that still live in the region. Even though this adventure can be demanding, the scenery and the experiences that are lived during the hikes make it one of the favorite places for travelers visiting northern Colombia.
