    3.5 - Good

    The itinerary and destinations gave a nice overview of the entire country in only two weeks, which is an achievement due to the massive cultural and geographic differences between the mountainous regions, the Pacific Coast and the Caribbean Coast. I would like to recommend that an additional day be added to spend in Cali as it's a large city with a lot to do, and arriving midday by van only left one afternoon to frantically explore. I would also think most travelers would have liked an additional day to spend in Cartagena which is likely the highlight of the tour for many (flight delays caused us to arrive late at night so we only had one full day before the tour ended). I knocked off two stars for multiple logistical issues - road transport taking hours more than the times estimated and showing up in San Agustin to discover that the archaeological park was closed and we had to stay an additional night which disrupted the entire itinerary. Too much of the tour was spent traveling between destinations unfortunately so the tour had a bit of a hurried pace to it, it seems like we were constantly packing up every day and traveling for entire days only to arrive in time to have dinner and then leave the next morning. Popoyan should be eliminated as a stop, it was basically just a stopover point halfway to Cali (which really should be a flight from San Agustin). Also, we landed in Neiva and still had to drive another four hours to San Agustin even though it has its own airport which wasted most of a day. Too much lost time between the traveling and logistical issues.

      For every other journey, you would be travelling by public bus. The precise transit times can be disclose as these are always subject to slight changes.

    • December 1, 2016

      How long does the viewing of archeological site take?

      The guided tour of San Agustin Archaeological Park is a half-day excursion so you could expect to spend 1 - 2 hrs there. This would give you plenty of time to thoroughly explore the park!
