We had a wonderful time in Colombia! The mix of locations were wonderful - from modern & lively Bogota, to historical old city of Cartagena, to the secluded beaches of Tayrona NP. All our transfers ran like clockwork, and our guides were fun, knowledgeable, and easy going. To top it off - we got engaged on the trip! Truly one for the books. :)
