Day 2 - Saturday, January 13, 2018
Bogota, Colombia
La Candelaria, Bogota Gay tour Morning: Bogotá City Tour with Monserrate Hill and Paloquemao
The tour starts with an early morning visit to the Paloquemao’s Market. This is one of the largest and most important markets in the country. Paloquemao presents the perfect mix of the old and new Bogotá and offers a great insight into the life and customs of the people from Bogotá. You will find a large variety of flowers, exotic fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, cheese, medicinal herbs as well as typical food. Everything is fresh and arrives daily to Bogotá from all regions of Colombia. You will have the opportunity to live a unique cultural experience, tasting some exotic fruits and enjoying a small snack during the visit.

Afterwards visit the famous and well-preserved historical colonial quarter of La Candelaria. Steeped in history, this area is a must for photographers with its splendid colonial architecture; you will want to take the opportunity to capture the sights and sounds of this fascinating part of Bogotá. Walk through the streets permeating with the heady atmosphere of the past, as revealed by the library of Luis Angel Arango and down to the prominent Plaza de Bolivar, the heart of Bogotá, where locals and visitors mingle amongst the magnificent and foreboding structures. You will want to discover the history of this old part of the city by visiting the Cathedral, the Congress Palace, the Cardinal’s Palace, the colonial churches of El Sagrario and San Agustin, the Independence House, the Palace of Justice and the City Hall which are all located in this impressive square.

Continuing to the east, on top of the forested mountains, you will find “Cerro de Monserrate”. This mountain has a white catholic church located at the top and has been a site of worship since 1657. On a clear day you will have the opportunity to enjoy a spectacular view of the city. You also might see snowcap of “Nevado del Tolima” on the far west side.

The tour then follows with a visit to the “Museo del Oro”, the most important gold museum in the world and a ‘must see’ when traveling to Bogotá. This museum displays one of the largest collections of pre-Columbian gold. Galleries on three levels display exquisitely crafted pieces dating back nearly 2,500 years. Visit the vault-like room on the top floor where the most treasured pieces are displayed, as well as the Offering Room, where passengers enter a black circular area that is gradually illuminated with indigenous music playing in the background; the light begins to dawn, and finally a remarkable display of gold offering collection is discovered.

The tour ends with a visit to the “Museo de Botero”, housed in a renovated colonial mansion. The works on display are all donated by Fernando Botero, Colombia’s most famous contemporary artist. Around 120 pieces of his own work are displayed at the museum including his famous sculptures, paintings and drawings. His work is well-known for the ‘proportionally exaggerated’ fat figures. In addition to his work, his personal collection by Picasso, Renoir, Dalí, Degas, Chagall, Matisse, Monet, and Giacometti are also exhibited.

Lunch is included during the tour at a local restaurant.

Evening: Welcome Dinner and Cocktails

Day 3 - Sunday, January 14, 2018
Bogota and Zipaquirá
Breakfast at the hotel

Zipaquira Salt CathedralZipaquira's Underground Salt Cathedral and tejo!
This visit begins with a panoramic view of the city and the vast plateau of the northern area of Bogotá. You will arrive at the small town of Zipaquirá where you will take an underground tour to discover the famous Salt Cathedral. Passengers will have the opportunity to experience the extraordinary architecture and engineering of this remarkable underground mine. This cathedral was carved inside an active salt mine, formed 250 million years ago under the Halite Mountains. Here you will find 14 small chapels that represent the Stations of the Cross and Jesus Christ’s crucifixion, a sanctuary, and a main cathedral. Although this is a popular tourist destination to be visited, this is also a place of pilgrimage for the local community.

Afterwards continue to visit the town of Zipaquirá, which was founded on 1600 and still conserves its colonial heritage. Stop at the main square, where you will find whitewashed houses decorated with olive-green trims as well as the most important municipal buildings.

Lunch is included during the tour at a local restaurant with a set menu.

Empanadas, pola, tienda and tejo! (2 hours)
This tour full of local flavor will show you some of the most representative and funnier traditions of the city. After lunch, you will be driven to a popular neighborhood seeking your first pola (beer) at a local tienda, the meeting point after a hard labor Saturday for thousands of workers. A tienda is a simple grocery store that also works as a pub with a few tables, a jukebox with popular hits, and that also serves, of course, cold beers.

With the aim of this first beer, the tour continues a few blocks ahead in the tejo course. Tejo, the national sport, is an indigenous heritage game of the native communities that inhabited the area where Bogotá were founded. This funny game consists of throwing a metallic mass that should explode little charges of gunpowder located at the other side of the track. The game’s official hydrating drink (how could it be otherwise) is beer, and to recharge your aim we invite you to enjoy a couple of empanadas con ají, beer’s perfect match. Once finished with the tejo match, you will be transferred back to your hotel.

Accommodations: W Hotel Bogota

Meals Included: Breakfast & Lunch

 

Day 4 - Monday, January 15, 2018
The Coffee Triangle
Breakfast at the hotel

Morning:
Cocora Valley, Colombia gay tour At leisure. Late Morning transport to the airport for our flight to Pereira. The Coffee Triangle is a perfect name for the “Zona Cafetera”, Colombia’s principal coffee-growing area. Shaped like an inverted triangle, this region is formed by the three departments of Caldas, Quindío and Risaralda. Its spectacular natural beauty makes it one of the most beautiful destinations to visit, combining lush green valleys, exotic wildlife, and a balmy climate. This is the perfect place to unwind and relax, while you sit back and enjoy the freshest coffee you'll ever taste.

We will visit the town of Salento for lunch and to enjoy this charming town. Founded in 1842, Salento was one of the first settlements in the Quindío state and still today it preserves its colonial “bahareque” architecture: a system using mud, timber and bamboo to build a collection of one and two-story buildings, mostly white but with doors and window frames adorned in brightly painted colors, typical of the coffee growing area. Salento’s centuries-old buildings are awash in harmonious color, especially along Calle Real, the main street lined end to end with restaurants, bars, handicrafts shops and souvenir stores.

Later, we will be taken to our hotel for check-in. In the heart of the coffee cultural landscape, this hotel's traditional architecture celebrates more than three centuries of history and tradition. Framed by the scenic beauty of the region, you will fall in love with this charming boutique hotel. Restored and equipped with all amenities and contemporary comforts, the Hacienda Castilla offers locals and visitors a relaxing base to explore the Colombian coffee triangle from.

Pereira
Morning: Colombian Coffee Hacienda
Colombian Coffee HaciendaAbout an hour outside of Armenia lies the town of Buenavista, the smallest municipality in Colombia. There, up in the hills you will find a premium coffee producer: Hacienda San Alberto. San Alberto has been producing coffee since the early 1970’s, so it came as no surprise when they decided to open their doors to the public and share this experience with the coffee lovers around the world.

Tour around the beautiful Hacienda San Alberto and learn all about the coffee process from start to finish. You will get familiarized with the coffee bean germination process, visit the coffee nursery, walk around the coffee plantations and visit the processing plant. Afterwards we invite you to participate in an incredible experience that will awaken all your senses: a coffee tasting accompanied by our experts. A sip of coffee will never be the same again; you will learn to identify the characteristics and qualities that are present in a good cup of coffee.

End the tour with a visit to the “Iglesia y Convento San Pedro de Claver”. Founded in the early 17th century by San Ignacio de Loyola, its name was changed to San Pedro de Claver, honoring the Jesuit priest who committed his life to ministering the enslaved people brought from Africa.

W Hotel Bogota

W Hotel Bogota"A year after opening, the W Bogota Hotel has not only solidified itself as the Colombian capital’s hippest place to stay, but also the hottest spot to dine, drink and mingle.

Located in the upscale Santa Barbara neighborhood and close to über-hip Usaquen, the hotel’s on-site restaurant (Market Kitchen), bar (W Lounge) and nightclub (Au Room) are just as popular among fancy “rolos” (what Bogota locals call themselves) and the city’s cool, young visitors who fill its 168 rooms.

The vibe throughout the property is electric, punctuated by a top-notch food and beverage program: Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Culinary Concepts is behind Market Kitchen, where chef Emiliano Rabía Sottil’s varied, delicious farm-to-table menu runs the gamut from steak tartare and squash blossom beignets to spaghetti and short ribs." - NY Post
