Xplora D.C. and Pacifico

We’ll get to know what there is to know about Bogota, guided by local experts that will take us thru the historic center and Monserrate. We’ll feel the warmth of its inhabitants among DC’s coldness.

We will take a flight to Nuqui, where we will discover why the Pacific is different from everything. If you do not see the sea, do not realize that you have it close, because you are surrounded by jungle, and even its waves do not seem to be provoked by the wind but by the inertia of the whole sea, that everything is coming and going, the low tide leaves uncovered a huge new and clean beaches, which disappear again every 6 hours. Its food, its villages, its fauna and flora form a truly special landscape where whales come from July to October to have and teach to swim their calves. It is an experience that must be lived.

Day 1: Welcome to Bogota! Hotel transfer

The night will start out with a local deep fried food platter, you will meet your host. Later you’ll visit a salsa bar in La Soledad neighborhood, you can get to know a classic and mythical dancing place in Bogota, a very peculiar tavern and whoever’s in the mood can dance with local experts. (Optional US$60)

Day 2: We’ll head off to Monserrate, Bogota’s landmark, we’ll go up on ferry or cable car, once at the top we’ll have the best view of the city. Afterwards we’ll visit the Marketplace where we’ll wonder at its colors and smells, trying out a variety of tropical fruits and before going to the hotel, we’ll close up with a local cuisine class (empanadas or patacones) at a local’s home, one more friend.

Day 3: We will fly to Chocó, where the Cumbancha will welcome us in Nuquí, and the water of Pipa will be the first taste that will welcome you to the Pacific. After setting up at the hotel, we will walk along an ancestral path to Olimpica Beach, where we will enjoy the sea until sunset, accompanied by a refreshing pineapple in totumo. Already in the evening we will take a gastronomic experience with one of the best cooks of the town, wash your hands well because you’ll end up licking your fingers!

Day 4: We will go by motorcycle to Tribuga, to take a kayak tour from the beach to the mangrove swamp where we will have lunch and enjoy those virgin and solitary beaches. Afterwards we will have a free time where we recommend visiting the spa of Nuquí, beautiful and very natural to relax even more. At night we will offer you a great cultural moment, with praises and the typical dance of the Pacific.

Day 5: We will leave by boat to Termales, a small and curious town by the sea, then we will walk to discover a waterfall called 4 charms, we will enjoy that landscape with some fruit. Back to Termales, we will take a canoe along the Joví river and we will also know the waterfall “Chontaduro”. At night they will hallucinate watching the plankton shine on the trees and the sea.

Day 6: By boat we will go to Jurubirá, a warm and colorful fishing village. We will enjoy the hot springs and we will leave for the Utría Natural National Park, a wonderful bay and a favorite place for whales to teach their calfs to swim.

Day 7: Good morning! We take a boat through the cove to look for whales (July – October). And we will disembark on a small island in front of the Bay, where a beautiful and private white beach forms.

Day 8: We leave the peace of NNT Utría and leave for El Valle, we will arrive at El Almejal beach, where we will be able to enjoy the sea and its swell, then we will leave in search of the waterfall El Tigre and we will rest in that refreshing place.
