Colombia offers the perfect Caribbean beach holiday tours – visit Cartagena and Palomino.
The Caribbean coast of Colombia is home to undeveloped and laid back beach resorts as well as vibrant seaside towns.
You cannot help but relax as the sound of the crashing waves and the soft sift of sand between your toes drains away your stress.
The pace of life is slow, the drinks are cold and the sun is warm. You may wish to book a few more nights than you first thought.
Enjoy both the chilled vibe of Palomino to the more animated city of Cartagena with our beach tour.
We can adapt this completely to your needs, with more beach and less city time as required.
Nearby, we can add on the nearby Lost City hike, as well as a day walk to El Pueblito, a Koqui community settlement in the hills of Tayrona National Park.
We can also include historic Santa Marta, all of these cities being well connected with flights.
Before you hit the beach, we include a few days to explore the highlights of two of Colombia’s iconic and world renown cities.
Enjoy Bogota and its famous museums, food and culture, before setting off for Cartagena de las Indias.
Prices From $4046 / £3236.8 per person
Combine the best of Colombia: tour the Cocora Valley, hike Los Nevados mountains and then relax at the beach.
Miss out none of Colombia’s highlights as you take in Bogota, the coffee region and Cartagena as well as visit indigenous villages and working farms, called fincas.
The itinerary is fully flexible if you wish to add in more time in one or more areas.
Start with a tour around the incredible Bogota, enjoying its famous museums, food and culture, before setting off for the coffee region.
Enjoy thermal springs and sleepy Salento before you head into Los Nevados National park for a hike into another world.
Los Nevados is a trekking paradise next to the famous coffee region.
Cloud forests, humming birds and volcanoes – plus the incredible frailejones plants – are your visual tapestry.
Walk to real mountain fincas, welcoming farmhouse type accommodations run by people clinging on to their traditional lifestyles, high in the Los Nevados mountains.
Having seen some incredible people, animals and plants, you fly to the famous Colombian Caribbean coast. Here, enjoy yoga, cold drinks and the pounding waves to relax after the hike.
One final day walk to the indigenous El Pueblito village awaits, then we take in the colourful towns of Santa Marta and Cartagena.
You can transfer out and fly to Bogota, and home, or book more nights in Cartagena, or perhaps fly to San Andres or Providencia for some Caribbean island relaxation.

Travel to Colombia and visit the highlights, including the Lost City trek, with our guided tour.
This Colombia sightseeing tour also includes Bogota, the cloud forest and coffee farms, Cartagena and the Caribbean coast.
Tick off the highlights of Colombia and end the trip with the legendary trek to the Lost City.
We start our holiday with a guided bike ride on Bogota’s closed roads (only on Sundays), along with many locals, giving a unique perspective of this city.
Next, visit Bogota’s world renown Gold Museum to see some of the very best of the Colombian gold.
We fly Bogota to Pereira and travel to Salento, a beautiful colonial town in the heart of Colombia’s coffee growing area.
Here, we explore on foot, take a guided tour around a coffee farm and a hike through the Wax palm trees. These trees are native to the Cocora valley, Colombia’s national tree, and the tallest palm species in the world growing as high as 60 metres.
Flying north to the Caribbean coast, explore the colonial cities of Cartagena and Santa Marta, before embarking on our 4-day trek to the Lost City.
It starts with a hike through the foothills of the Santa Marta national park, steeply rolling terrain with plenty of ups and downs, heat and humidity.
Refreshing swims in the river, stunning views and reaching The Lost City make this a hugely rewarding trek.
After the trek end the tour with a flight back to Bogota, or opt for a few days of well deserved rest and relaxation in Tayrona national park’s pristine beaches on the Caribbean coast.
Don’t forget binoculars, as there is plenty of birdlife here, keep an eye out for the brightly coloured hummingbirds, toucans and parrots.

Our bike tour was very good we had an excellent guide
Rio Claro was absolutely wonderful - the fact that there were many people there meant we mixed a lot and loved it. Amount of time there was just right.
Our private taxi to Rio Salento was with a lovely taxi driver, very safe, very polite.
Snorkelling was magnificent, a very nice place.
On The Lost City trek - the guide was Camacho, who was great. We were given fresh sheets on the beds at camp, the washing facilities are poor and toilets very basic. Camacho did a great job at looking after our diets. We had a big downpour one day and the path became a mud bath - Camacho was great at helping us along safely. The weather cleared and next 3 days were amazing.
Overall we loved Colombia - it was a lovely place to go and the people were really friendly. We had lots of laughs and were reassured knowing there was help at the end of the phone if need be.

I woke up and I was full of energy. I slept well. I honestly thought today was going to be worse than it was.
But I started going and it was fine.
I was so happy to meet the lovely family and students at Finca Argentina that it filled me with good energy. I had such a lovely evening there.
Today there was such a beautiful landscape, it made it worth it.
Also, I knew how far we had to walk, and how long it was going to take us, and that was really important for me, psychologically.
We saw a lot of changes, and humming birds, which was lovely, but I was very tired at some points and my legs were not responding .
But it was great in another sense as I was very happy to get to the hotel, knowing I’d seen wonderful things and that I’d done the trek!
The landscape was great and finding people who live in these remote places, and live so happily in these lovely areas, that was the most beautiful part for me.
And for that alone, it was worth it.
