Thursday, May 30: Rise & shine everyone!! Today is an early day filled with adventures and cultural history about the first free African town in America. 

The Freedom Tour is the most authentic tour offered in San Basilio de Palenque given by certified guides that are native to the community. We will learn more about the village which was established by Africans who escaped from slavery in the 1600’s. The tour starts with pick up transport for about 1-2 hours, walking tour around the community, visiting local homes, interaction with natives and a Typical Palenquero lunch with refreshment.

Friday, May 31: We will start the day off with leisure time around the streets of Cartagena. Tour the streets of Getsemani and the Old City. Be on the lookout for the beautiful Palenque ladies to take a picture with them! 

Along with our visit at Getsemani, we will put on our best smiles with an outfit in the colors of orange, yellow, or red. We will meet our photographer in an area nearby for an amazing photoshoot which will also serve as a walking tour around the streets of Cartagena.

Later in the day, we will gather around for a cooking class in order to immerse ourselves in the culture and will prepare an authentic Colombian dish.

Saturday, June 1:  This the moment you’ve been waiting for? Yess, today is all about beach vibes!!

After breakfast, we will escape the busy streets of Cartagena with a full day of Island hopping. Our representative will take you to the Colombian coastal town of Barú, where a speedboat will take you to several beautiful islands where all boats meet up and party! We will be given the opportunity to swim and snorkel in the azure Caribbean and relax.
