If you are travelling through Colombia, this is a MUST EXPERIENCE. It was my first trek, pretty hard but very rewarding. An absolute disconnection with civilization and connection with the world.

Absolutely loved our guide Ariel Gallego! Would highly recommend him with Expotour. He was very knowledgable and friendly and had very strong relationships with the indigenous community.

Its a great four days trekking, perfect to connect with the mountain, the river and other people.The food at the camps is great. I really recommended Juan Diego Rangel as a guide, he is adorable and transmite the Tayrona culture with a love and respect.
