Southern Highlights of Colombia: Bogota, Tatacoa desert and San Augustin
Explore Colombia’s Tatacoa desert and enjoy the archaeological wonders of San Augustin on our Southern Highlights holiday.
You start your tour in Colombia’s vibrant capital, Bogota, visiting markets, the famous Gold Museum and more.
Next we head to enjoy the incredible colours and stars in the Tatacoa desert. Sunrise is the best time to enjoy the ochre and contrasting grey hues of this incredible landscape.
At night, with clear skies, you’ll enjoy an explosion of stars and have a clear view of the Milky Way.
Archaeology of San Augustin
San Augustin’s hills are verdant and full of coffee plantations and fruit trees, with the smell of sugar cane production weighty in the crisp air.
We you from one archaeological wonder to another: El Purutal, La Tablón and La Chaquira.
The parks Parque Arqueológico, Alto de los Idolos and Alto de la Guacas showcase giant ancient sculptures up to seven metres tall, some very humanlike, others rather monstrous.
Our tailor made tours are completely flexible and you can easily extend and combine this tour with other South America holidays.
