Sailing to Tayrona with Luis: Unique!

Sailing to Tayrona with Luis: Unique!

star-4.5
110
My name is Luis, I am an Economist and I worked as a consultant for more than 20 years. I changed my work for my passion: sailing and enjoying nature, especially the sea. I have been sailing since I was 10 days old, it is a passion inherited from my family and I love to transmit my knowledge of the sea and navigation to the people who accompany me. Since arriving in Colombia with my family I have had the opportunity to know Tayrona in a way that people do not know, from the sea. It is a unique experience that we want to teach you. We are bilingual (Spanish and English) and we love to talk and tell the local anecdotes, we will take you to live an unforgettable day. I am a yacht skipper and I have all the necessary courses to guarantee you safety and enjoy the experience.

The Native Expedition - Sierra Nevada (3 days Awesomes view points)

star-4.5

This project was started by a group of peasant families who have decided to leave aside activities with a negative impact on the environment (like intensive agriculture and livestock) and work in tourism. These families saw that the place what has always been their home is a paradise of landscapes, biodiversity and cultural experiences. And now they want to show this paradise, and everything it offers, to the rest of the world. This trek is outside of others tourist treks saturated with visitors, wildlife full, ancient rainforests, impressive waterfalls, friendly people and stunning views of the mountains and the Caribbean Sea. Of course, to get to the most beautiful places requires great effort, hiking along steep slopes, grass fields, forests and mountains. As such, it is necessary to be in a good physical and mental condition. You will be rewarded at the end of each day, when we will be welcomed, eat and sleep in the peasants houses where we will have a cultural exchange.

Tayrona Sailing PRIVATE
"I rented the boat for a day for just myself and my then-girlfriend. I was planning on proposing and did halfway through the trip. The guys- Charly, Jordan and Raul were fantastic, definitely added to the magic of the day for us. For us, the fact that they seemed to be having a good time on the boat took the pressure of too much attention off us, however the guys were simultaneously attentive and enjoyable. There were also some great activities on the boat and on the guys’ itinerary. We went kayaking, cliff jumping, snorkeling, swimming and learned to drive the small motorboat that hung off the back. Nic was also very helpful, calling ahead of time to nail down specifics, asking how he could make the day special, which resulted in post-proposal sparkling wine and charcuterie. Overall, the guys helped us have one of the most memorable days of our lives."..."
