Beaches, Mountains and Cultures
The Caribbean Coast stretches from the Gulf of Urabá near Panamá to La Guajira near the Venezuelan border, with an abundance of natural diversity and local cultures, this extensive coastline is not to be missed.
Whether it is enjoying a leisurely stroll through romantic colonial city Cartagena de Indias at dusk, spotting monkeys while you hike towards Cabo San Juan in the Tayrona National Natural Park or a touch of Kitesurfing in La Guajira, there is something for everyone!
If you need to escape the humid heat you can always head up to the mountain village of Minca. It's only a 30 minute drive from Santa Marta in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
If indigenous culture is at the top of your list a visit to the Tungueka indigenous reserve is one of the options among many other indigenous communities, Kogi, Arahuaco, Wiwa, which inhabit the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.
