  • Super sweet hike and ruins. Not for the faint of heart though as you will be super sweaty and tired. Good rivers to swim in every day thankfully.
  • This is a great trek through the jungles of Colombia. I have done a few multi-day hikes in my time and others have been longer and higher so I didn't think it was too difficult but it's really really humid and that can really take it out of you. I have never sweated as much in my life and there was definitely climbs especially on day 4 where my legs felt it. I did my trek with Guías y Baquianos and I thought they did a great job. I had a great guide and a great group. We also tended to stay at our own cabanas which really helped for group bonding. It makes a big difference. I met a couple on way whose guide just left them so they did 2 days by there selves and got food by asking others (I never found out their tour company) I imagine that's the exception not the norm though. I learned a lot along the way and in many ways this was the highlight of the 4 days learning about the culture and story of how it was found. There is some lovely scenery along the way. Don't worry about food too much, I was fed like a king and there is a bunch of snack stands with fruit along the way. I drank water that was purified and never had any stomach issues. 1 thing maybe of interest is my guide Carlos explained how the money is spent. 1 of the complaints I have heard is that at 700,000 it's too expensive. Here is why the money goes: Food - 100000 Transport to and from Santa Marta - 25000 The 6 Regions involved in trek - 6 x 30000 Indigenous people - 20000 Entry fee for park - 35000 Food at start and end -10k each- 20000 Cook - 25000 Cabanas where you stay - 10000 ,10000,12 so 32000 Travel agency - 70000 Guide - 35000 to 40000 Mules - 100000 for group per mule on average so depends on size of group so that's around 550,000 Any profit thereafter is distributed to community to fix trails, road etc and for sick locals to pay for medicine as well as funeral costs. Something to keep in mind. I am glad I did it and would highly recommend.
