See above. We spent two nights in Cartagena and then went to the Rosario Island for two nights. From there we went to Minca and the Tayrona Park area. We could have used another day in Minca and skipped Tayrona Park although that coastal area was beautiful. Our stay at the B*** Hotel was wonderful-the hotels there sit on a beautiful river that flows into the Caribbean. The birds, flora and wildlife was spectacular. We then went to Medellin for 4 nights (2-3 would have been fine). We had excellent guides here and the city is an interesting place. From there we went to Solento, hiked in the Coccoro Valley and visited a beautiful coffee plantation. The people we met were very friendly and helpful.
