TRIP INFORMATION | ITINERARY

Days 1-3 (Aug 10 – Aug 12): WHALE ENCOUNTERS IN BAHIA SOLANO!

  

This all-in package of 3 days/2 nights allows you to enjoy the best of this extraordinary region. It is the perfect place to spot whales as every year hundreds of humpback whales make an 8000 kilometer journey from the Antarctic looking for the warm waters of the Colombian Pacific coast. From June to early October, the waters around Bahia Solano become the spot where they give birth and teach their young to hunt, breath, and swim.

 

On your first day, a driver will pick you up in the morning to bring you to the airport of Medellin so you can take a flight to Bahia Solano. You will be picked up in Bahía Solano´s airport and transported to the town´s harbour, where you will be taken in a speed boat to the Hotel Playa del Oro Ecolodge (located in the Punta Huina Area). After check-in, you will be given some explanations about the area and its conservation projects. Afterwards, you will have lunch in the hotel´s restaurant and have the rest of the day for you to relax at the beach and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

 

On your second day you will go on an amazing whale watching tour. The boat driver will manoeuvre the boat next to the shore looking for these giant creatures. With some luck, you could witness a mother teaching her baby whale how to jump and hit the water with its tail. An unforgettable experience! After lunch, you will have the chance to discover the surrounding jungle. You will be guided on a fantastic walk through one of the most biodiverse places on earth. The walk finishes at one of the most beautiful beaches of the region: the Playa de los Deseos. Here you will have some time to relax before heading back to the hotel.

 

On the last day, after breakfast and your last moments at this gorgeous place, you will be taken by speedboat to the harbour of Bahía Solano. From here, you will be transported to the town´s airport to take your flight to Bogotá (with a stopover in Medellin).

Days 4-6 (Aug 13 – Aug 15):  THE PINK MAGIC OF CAÑO CRISTALES

 

Caño Cristales is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular attractions Colombia has to offer. This river has the reputation of being one of the world’s most beautiful ones and we agree. You will be able to see an array of bewildering colors that come from a specific type of aquatic plants that bloom pink during the rainy season.

 

This Cano Cristales Tour offers a full 3 days and 2 night’s package to allow you to explore this hidden gem. You will stay 2 nights in a basic hotel in La Macarena from where you will have to take boat rides and make mildly challenging walks through spectacular landscapes in order to get you to the treasure of Caño Cristales.

 

On the first day you will fly to La Macarena early in the morning. La Macarena is the name of the little village closest to the Caño Cristales river. You will be welcomed by your guide and a refreshing drink. After lunch, you will discover the colorful and crystal clear waters of the Caño Cristales River. The hike bringing you there will be one via the Guayabero River. This area is home to a variety of birds, reptiles and fish so keep your eyes open while on the canoe. After being dropped by the canoe at the starting point of the walk you will hike for 20-40 minutes before arriving to the Caño Cristales River. From there on you will follow the route next to the river so you will have lots of opportunities to take pictures from all kind of angles.

 

The second day will have more pink beauty in store for you because you are going to visit a part of the Caño Cristales River that is called Caño Cristales Verde. After breakfast you and your guide will go again by canoe to another starting point from where a new adventure starts. After the canoe dropped you off you will have to take a 4×4 for about 20 minutes to the beginning of a path that will lead you through a small but exotic jungle to a beautiful part of Caño Cristales.

 

The third and last day of this tour will take you in the morning to some more beautiful nature spots where you can learn a lot about the traditions and way of lives of the local people. After lunch it will be time to set course again to Bogotá.
