Colombia june trek 2017, Colombia - Jun 25 - Jul 2, 2017
I absolutely loved my (2) treks with Expediciones Colombia (in partnership with the other two companies my guides were from). To make the trip better, I would have liked to hike with others. I was alone with my guide and was hoping to make some new friends! So, that was disappointing. I'm not sure why Expediciones couldn't find more trekkers since I made the reservation months in advance for that purpose (of finding other trekkers). The trek itself and the scenery were excellent. Thank you!... read more

Rafting and hiking, Colombia - Apr 22 - Apr 23, 2017
You guys provided a great itinerary, but I think it also would have been nice to know some other details beforehand. i.e., the walk down to rio verde is rigid and pretty long, wear good shoes. There are no showers or sinks at the camp site. Bring plenty of water, etc.
I put in the passport for that one person from our group was a vegetarian and there was no vegetarian dinner option. :(
For future groups, I would recommend providing a luggage requirement. We were told in the van on the way... read more
