    Day 1:
    We will begin our adventure from the heart of the city, heading towards the enigmatic Tagua, a hidden paradise nestled among the mountains. Along the way, we will pass picturesque places such as Minca, El Campano, and La Tagua, located in the coffee region of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. From here, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the imposing Sierra Nevada, with a distant sight of the city and the Ciénaga Grande de Santa Marta.

    Get ready for an exciting descent towards the Córdoba River, where you'll have the option to take a horse or a mule to embark on a steep two-hour path until we reach Canta Rana, a natural pool where you can enjoy a refreshing swim and take a snack break. We will continue our journey to the entrance of the Ancient City, where transportation will pick us up and take us to the Ecohotel Esmeralda, where we'll check-in and enjoy a delicious lunch. After resting, you'll have the opportunity to participate in a tasting of various coffee varieties, visit a viewpoint to admire the sunset, and marvel at the Ciénaga Grande de Santa Marta.

    Day 2:
    Wake up to this spectacular panorama in the heart of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and start your day with a cup of filtered organic coffee. Contemplate the sunrise in this natural environment of pure air, an opportunity to reconnect with yourself and appreciate the beauty and abundance of one of Colombia's and the world's lungs. After breakfast, we will embark on a one-hour hike to reach the entrance of the Ancient City, one of the 300 pre-Hispanic urban centers. Here, you can marvel at the cobblestone paths, agricultural terraces, platforms, small stone bridges, and retaining walls that are part of the Tairona archaeological site that still stands today.

    It was "rediscovered" during a marijuana eradication operation in 1983. It is estimated that during pre-Hispanic times, this city was home to around 5,000 indigenous people distributed across approximately 900 terraces. Currently, only about 15 housing rings can be observed. During the exploration tour, you will admire the architecture, retaining walls, paths, and terraces that have been covered and lost in the forest for 400 years. The Prosierra Foundation manages and studies the possibility of exploring the routes used by the ancestors to communicate with other settlements in this archaeological area. We then return on foot to Ecohotel La Esmeralda, where we will enjoy a delicious lunch and prepare for the return to the city of Santa Marta, concluding this fascinating tour.
