Unlike tour companies, we don’t just use a cookie-cutter itinerary for every trip. Each trip is unique and incorporates local events like summer festivals, markets, and the weather. We provide our curated schedules to the group a week before the trip, but here’s an outline of how we plan to journey through Medellín!
Bienvenido! Turn on that OOO notification at work and meet your crew at a rooftop bar in Medellín for a chill first night of getting to know each other. Drinks are in order.
Coffee is central to Colombian culture, which is why we’ll go deep into the hills to visit a family-owned coffee farm. Upon arriving at the farm, we’ll explore the coffee production process, learn all about the elements that go into aromatic Colombian coffee, and, of course, taste some of its deliciousness at the source! Even non-coffee lovers will enjoy their time on this scenic farm.
With its pristinely preserved architecture, colorful houses, and incredible view from Piedra del Peñol, Guatapé is a day-long adventure away from the hustle and bustle. Those who’d like to can climb the 600+ steps to get to the top of the rock – it’s tough, but it’s worth it!
Medellín thrives with a lavish music and dance scene. We’ll learn how to dance the Colombian way and how to approach locals without feeling like a tourist. Who better to help us through it than our Local Lead, Cata. Salsa, merengue, reggaeton and more!
Tejo, a combination of beer and gunpowder, is Colombia’s national sport! Naturally, we got curious and we plan to try our hands at this game by throwing tejos (metal discs) at a ring rigged with explosives. We’ll meet our local friends and grab a few beers!
Watch this neighborhood transform from one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the world to a gleaming and colorful commune through the power of art and music. We’ll walk through the commune with our local friends to understand the transformation through their eyes.
This add-on experience will take us to the traditional town of Jardín in Antioquia’s rural coffee district. Besides exploring this colorful village, we’ll hike to the famous Cueva del Esplendor. A scenic ride on the typical local jeeps will get us to the trail head through the vibrant green countryside. We’ll cross a native forest to this famous cave with a waterfall gushing through its roof.
We’ve scouted high-class boutique apartments in the trendy neighborhood of El Poblado. Each apartment has private rooms and bathrooms for all our members. Our goal is to live, eat, and drink in the neighborhoods we travel to – so we don’t stay in shared hotels or hostels. Here’s the type of apartments we stay at in Medellín:

Tucked away in the nook of the scenic bay that gave it its name, Santa Marta is an underexplored beach town that holds many surprises for travellers seeking an authentic taste of the Caribbean without the usual touristy gimmicks. Come seeking the sun, sailing, hiking or local cuisine in Santa Marta.
Every day was a new adventure. Whether it was singing at an open-air concert, climbing to the tops of mountains, swimming between oceans, or dancing under the moonlight, there’s no other group I’d go with. This trip lit my soul in a way that had been dormant for far too long.
