colombia travel highlights

In this video, I am taking you back to my trip to North Colombia during February 2015, showcasing some of my Colombia Travel Highlights. Starting off with diving in Capurganá and exploring the beautiful architecture of Cartagena, I was making my way to the Santa Marta area. Based there, I visited Minca up in the mountains, breathtaking Playa Arrecife in Tayrona National Park, Palomino beach and last but not least, the lost city Ciudad Perdida including some highly poisonous snakes.

Live #62, Bogotá & Villa de Leyva, Colombia

#83_colombia_bogotalevya06/03/2015 It’s been my second visit to Colombia’s capital Bogotá and I met up with some friends from my last time over there. We were also headed to Villa de Leyva for a little roadtrip, a beautiful small colonial town about 160km north east of Bogotá.

Live #61, Ciduad Perdida & Taganga, Colombia

#82_colombia_lostcity01/03/2015 Relaxing at the gorgeous beach of Palomino was great, but if you followed my blog for a while, you will know that I actually prefer to put on my hiking boots and be a bit more active. The 5-day trek to the “The Lost City” of Ciduad Perdida deep in the jungle of northern Colombia seemed to be a must-do for me. We certainly had a lot of action thanks to the poisonous snakes in the area. One of them bit a soldier, putting him in a desperate need to be rescued by a helicopter, and one other was found and killed by our guides on the way back!

Live #60, Palomino & Santa Marta, Colombia

#81_colombia_palomino27/02/2015 Sometimes you come along a place you had no idea it even existed and then find yourself at that very place the next day. This happened to me in the case of Palomino, a small cozy settlement not too far from Santa Marta in Colombia on the way to Riohacha. It is famous for tubing down the river Palomino and a great place to just relax and enjoy the calming effects of the ocean.

Live #59, Tayrona National Park, Colombia

#79_colombia_tayrona25/02/2015 Tayrona National Park should ring a bell for a lot of people, forming one of the most spectacular coastlines in Colombia. About four months ago, I spent a few nights there and can finally present you my story wandering through the beaches, doing some great bouldering and exploring the “mini” lost city Pueblito 🙂

Live #58, Santa Marta & Minca, Colombia

#78_colombia_santamarta23/02/2015 My time in Brazil is slowly coming to an end after almost two months and exploring Santuário do Caraça as well as colonial towns such as Ouro Preto was another great experience. I barely had internet in the last days, but now I can finally get a quick update out. Santa Marta has been an amazing base for a lot of different things in the northern coast of Colombia; one short side trip in a Jeep took us up the mountains to a small village called Minca.
