Ciudad Perdida (Lost City) is the archaeological territory of an ancient Tayrona city located in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta whose construction is attributed to the year 800 A.D. many years before Machu Picchu. The Tayrona paradise is made up of a series of terraces dug into the mountainside formed by a network of tiled roads and small circular squares. Get to Ciudad Perdida is done by climbing some 1200 stone steps through the vast jungle of the region, an adventure that begins in the city of Santa Marta and forces you to cross kilometers of mountain between rivers and jungle, an unforgettable experience that will allow you to meet the natives of the area, have an experience amid nature and live an extreme journey between the mountain and the sea.

We did a hike to beautiful waterfall in Minca. At the waterfall we were able to swim in pristine cold water to cool down. The scenery was spectacular...the hike also included stop along the way at a coffee farm for a coffee discussion and tasting. After the waterfall we stopped at “Jungle Joes” hostel which Included a Cacao tasting and discussion. “Jungle Joes” cook an absolutely delicious gourmet lunch which is as good a meal as we have had in the 1.5years that we have been living in Colombia. Coordinating logistics and planning our excursion was great with this tour company....They were always extremely responsive.

This journey is full of wildlife, flora, stunning views, & adrenaline. Our 2 day trek is ideal for those who do not have much time, & want an unforgettable way to discover the magic and panoramic views of this biodiverse mountain range. The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the second-highest coastal mountain range in the world and the source of 36 rivers, contains almost every ecosystem on the planet: deserts, alpine lakes, rainforests, wetlands, tundra, coral reefs, & glaciers. The mosaic of habitats and species found here are like nowhere else on Earth. Separated from the Andes mountain chain by plains & deserts, the Sierra Nevada is a self-contained microcosm of diverse ecoregions & lifeforms containing thick, misty jungles, snow capped peaks, rare and unusual species, ancient lost cities, & isolated indigenous people rich with culture and tradition, all of which steep these mountains in myth and intrigue. Many plant and animal species here are found nowhere else in the world.

The tour is a route around the town of Minca, the departure is at about 9.00, once in Minca you will take a walk of about 45 minutes to reach Pozo Azul (on holidays you will reach another area of the river with waterfall to avoid overcrowded areas of tourists) here we will stop for about an hour with the possibility of taking a bath. Another 45 minute walk to reach the finca where you will have the typical lunch with a panoramic view of Santa Marta. Another 45-minute walk to reach the organic coffee crops where the various processing procedures will be explained and a test of the finished product will be offered.
