Depart between 9:00 and 10:00 am from the door of your accommodation by 4x4 vehicle for a 3-hour trip to reach El Mamey. Here we will have a light lunch before beginning your exciting trek into one of the largest pre-Columbian towns in Latin America, once inhabited by the Tayrona civilization around the 11th to 14th century.  Get ready for a 7-kilometer trek through the jungle passing by several natural pools where you can take a refreshing swim before reaching the first camp where you will set up your hammocks for the night, have dinner and get a good night’s sleep.

During the day you will meet indigenous families in their native lands and cross the river Buritaca several times refreshing yourself in the cool waters.  During rainy season water levels can reach up to 1 meter deep.  So today, please plan to wear water shoes or hiking sandals with good straps and be prepared to get wet.

Walk among the 170 stone terraces and endless staircases that cover the approximately 2 square kilometers that was once the largest Tayrona city and major economic and political center. This will give you a better understanding on how large and spectacular this site really is. After the site visit we will return to the third camp for lunch.

Additional Information:

Physical Requirements: If you exercise regularly and enjoy nature, then the path to the Lost City is an exceptional experience that you should add to your list of adventures. For those concerned about their physical condition, most days consist of about 7-8 kilometers trekking through challenging trails that are often steep, slippery and muddy, including forging the Buritaca River. During the dry season, the water may be knee high while water levels may increase to chest-height with strong currents during the rainy season. We recommend bringing a reliable pair of trekking shoes.

Essential Tips:

  • Avoid carrying a heavy and uncomfortable backpack. During the trek, everyone carry what they want to take.
  • Keep your body hydrated by drinking water constantly.
  • During walks, always stay with your group and avoid getting away the paths.
  • Protect your skin by reapplying sunscreen regularly and wearing protective clothing and a hat.
  • Minimize your plastic garbage and dispose waste properly.
  • Leave what you find and respect wildlife and local customs.
  • During the day the weather is hot and humid, so we recommend wearing comfortable clothing, shirts and shorts for walking; at night the temperature is about 16°C and there is a high proportion of mosquitoes and other insects, so it is important to wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts for sleeping and use insect repellent.
  • It is recommended to have the yellow fever vaccine as a preventive measure for the Lost City Trek.
What to bring:
  • Small or Medium Backpack (pack as lightly as possible)
  • Trekking boots and Sandals/Tennis Shoes
  • Hiking poles (optional)
