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.

How do I successfully achieve high altitude acclimatisation? This is the question that anyone travelling to the high altitude Andean areas of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina or Colombia should be asking themselves. Successful acclimatisation will make a huge difference to your visit. It will mean you have a much safer and more enjoyable experience, whether trekking or climbing high Andean peaks. Over the past 25 years I have been up many 5,000 m plus peaks and trekked many fabulous routes in the Andes. I have suffered altitude headaches, lethargy, loss of appetite and certainly lack of breath when trying …
