The Lost City Trek 5 days tour is ideal for those travelers who prefer to enjoy nature, while hiking a little less demanding than the adventurous option of 4 days.



The official departure of the tour takes place at 9:00 a.m., from our main office located in the city of Santa Marta to MAMEY. This whole trip takes about two and a half hours and is done in one of our 4 × 4 trucks.
In the Mamey region, a delicious lunch typical of the region will be waiting for us. After lunch we will have some minutes to prepare for the start of the walk.

This walk, through the beautiful path enabled for tourists, has an approximate duration of 4 hours (6.8 km, walk up, little down). At the end of the afternoon we will have reached the first camp where we can clean, eat and rest for the next day of the Lost City Tour 5 days.


Day 2 of our Lost City Tour 5 days begins with a delicious breakfast that contains all the necessary nutrients to strengthen our body for the demands of the tour. On this day of the tour we will walk approximately 7 hours (14.7 km, hike up, little down), through the Buritaca River Valley, a completely wonderful path where we will find a village of the Kogui indigenous people, who inhabit the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta.

In case you find an indigenous person on the road and want to take a picture, remember that you must first request their authorization, doing it is considered disrespectful.

All this tour through the beautiful jungle of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, will take us to camp 3, where we can also eat, clean and rest in the beds or hammocks that are available.


This tour day starts very early. After having breakfast, we will begin to climb the 1,200 steps to the Lost City. This road was built by the Tayronas (first inhabitants of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta)

When we finished climbing the steps, we find the archaeological wonder of Lost City. At this point the guide gives information about the place, the history, its relics and a bit of the ancestral culture.  Here we will be long enough for you to rest and take photos (Under the guidance of the guide). In this place, as well as in other specific points of the Lost City Tour 5 days we will offer some snaks or fruits.

After this incredible experience, we will return to Camp 3 where we will have lunch and take the road back to Camp 2, where we will spend the night. This return hike will last approximately 4 hours (6 km, more ups than downs).


On our fourth day of our adventure, we will have breakfast and begin a journey of about 5 hours | 8 KM, along the same trail and then make a detour that will take us to 3 impressive waterfalls called cascadas de Pablo, cascadas del abanico and cascadas de la negra, where we can take a refreshing swim and connect with nature, finally we will arrive to our accommodation to rest, this route will be mostly flat with few downhills.

FARM – EL MAMEY (End point of the tour)
