Historical Cartagena - 6 days

Explore the best kept secret of South America! Wander the cobblestone streets in the charming old city of Cartagena, admire the pastel colored buildings, savor exotic fruit, drink fresh coconut water, and learn how to salsa! And that's just the beginning ...

Bring your adventurous attitude and wander around the bustling Mercado Bazurto! We will follow in the footsteps of world chef Anthony Bourdain and eat the local way. 

Outside the walls of the old city, you'll visit the Alex Rocha Youth Center. Here, Rocha works to give youth an alternative to crime and violence - it's a worthy cause for your donation. You'll visit with the children and maybe even challenge them to some kickball!

Before leaving Colombia, you'll splash through glistening Caribbean waters and soak in the sun while cruising on a private boat tour. You'll return home sun-kissed and refreshed!

A photo album of your Colombian adventure is part of the fun!

A few weeks after your trip, you will receive all your most treasured moments, captured for you and printed on classic archival paper. We believe moments are meant to be felt and captured, and they are meant to be tangible!
