COLOMBIA FRIENDS AND FAMILY TOUR

Taylormade Colombian Caribbean Coast Tour and Christmas Lights Medellin.

Hi friends, it is a pleasure to have you again exploring a different and super interesting country.

This time is the turn for Colombia, NOT Columbia. 

The tour will take us to 2 different regions.

The first region is the northern Coast department of Bolivar located in the Caribbean region where Cartagena and Santa Marta are settled.

This was the place the pirates, whalers, colonizers from all over the world wanted to claim as theirs as the main gate to Central and South America.

As many coastal cities in the tropical world, it could seem loud, a bit dirty, but really interesting, its customs, food, landscape, nature, and for sure will give us new adventures.

The second region is the central Andes, out of a chain of three mountain ranges this one is split between Cauca and Magdalena rivers.

Medellin is a very important city for Colombia full of entrepreneurs, business, nature, and an interesting mixture of people.

The main culture is “the Paisa”.

Hundreds of years ago when Spanish-Jewish farmers and curious explorers arrived to the higher mountains and valleys, then moved downwards spreading into few other departments besides Antioquia.

Here they found again: indigenous people, wild animals, fertile forests, valleys, water, gold and more.

This area became the chosen one to start developing what we have now as Medellin and its surroundings.

So here we invite you again to come cheerfully, and open to a new adventure.
