Trip review
Colombia

loved their trip to Colombia

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.

Best parts:
My favorite parts of the trip was our time spent in the Cocoro Valley, the little towns of Solento and Finlandia and our time on the coast at the B**** Hotel in Tayrona. The nature was stunning. Cartagena (beautiful old colonial walled city) and Medellin were interesting cities and we were glad we had planned to visit these places as well. We had some excellent guides which really enhanced our trip. We really enjoyed visiting Guatape and Penol too.
Worst parts:
The drive from Cartagena to the Tayrona coast was long and stressful. I'd recommend flying there instead. Some of the hotel choices weren't great. We could have also skipped Rosario Island-or maybe it was the hotel at Rosario. The rooms were nice but the food wasn't good and there weren't other place to eat. The beachfront of that hotel also had very limited swimming areas.
