Cano Cristales Tour • Rainbow River • Lulo Colombia Travel

The Pink Magic of Caño Cristales

Travel Itinerary - 3 Days

From EUR 530 per person




On the first day of your Cano Cristales Tour, 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 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.


Hotel: Casa Real – Double room with private bathroom



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, which truly is one of the highlights of this Cano Cristales tour. In the evening you will enjoy  a traditional event in which you will have the chance to experience local music, dances and food, as well as to witness a typical rodeo show.
