One month trip itinerary for Colombia

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I (early 30's) are planning a 6 month plus tour of South America and have some questions about Colombia that we hope forum members will be able to hep us with.

We want to experience the best Colombia has to offer for a period of 4 or so weeks (we can be flexible), focusing on food, beaches, culture and hiking (to counter the food).

We also plan to visit Peru (where we plan to do a lot of hiking), Ecuador and Bolivia on this trip.

Here is our rough plan and direction so far (these are the big targets):

Start in Medellin
Salento
Valle de Cocora
Bogota
Villa De Leiva
Barichara
The Santa Marta Area & Parque Tayrona
The hike to Ciudad Pérdida
Cartagena
Islas del Rosario

Will four weeks be enough time to see all of these places? We'll most likely be travelling by bus or plane depending on distance.

We also have places like Minca, San Gil and Giron on the list and we'd love to get to Mompos as well.

Are there any towns on here that you recommend over others? Or have I missed any that we should really see?

Apart from Tyrona, are there other National Parks that we should visit?

Cheers in advance!
