Lost City Trek

What Is It?

What Machu Picchu is to Peru, the Lost City is to Colombia.

It’s a 4 day trek through the jungles of the Sierra Nevada to the ancient and abandoned Lost City or ‘Ciudad Perdida’ of the Tayrona civilization.

Getting There

You’ll need to book the trek through an approved tour operator that are based in Santa Marta. Expect to pay between £200-300 depending on the operator.

What Is It?

An unspoiled national park that’s still inhabited by indigenous tribes.

The 1.5hr hike through a jungle path will take you back to nature and you’ll be greeted by a collection of unspoiled beaches.

Getting There

The park is open between 8am – 5pm and you should make a reservation in advance due to limited capacity.

Entrance of the park about a 45min taxi ride from Santa Marta (west) and Palomino (east).
