I've been on my sabbatical since mid-October and have been traveling through Central America ever since. On January 15th I will arrive in Cartagena in Colombia and I am looking for fellow travelers for the further trip. I travel whenever possible and have already successfully planned various round trips: Chile, South Africa (2x), Israel & Jordan, USA (several routes), Uruguay, Cuba, .... I've also been a tripleader for a tour of South Africa and traveling with my two tripmates was a lot of fun. I don't necessarily have to do everything together on a trip, for example if you have different interests / needs, then you just meet again later;) But I enjoy company and it's just more fun to discover a country together. The travel plan for Colombia is quite advanced. But the accommodations and domestic flights could be rebooked. My planned route looks like this: The start would be in Cartagena, because I'll be there on January 15th. with a sailboat from Panama. From 19.01. we continue to Santa Marta. There you can enjoy the beach, go diving and drive to the beautiful Tayrona National Park. On January 24th the plane goes to Medellin to discover the city and to explore the surrounding area (e.g. Guatape). On 01/29 we continue to Bogota for 3 nights. I plan around € 1,000 for Colombia. At the end of the day I'll write something about the travel budget. The travel plan for Ecuador is so far only on paper, so nothing has been booked yet. I really want to go to the Galapagos, but would decide the time for this rather expensive part of the journey together with you. Because if you don't come with me, at the end of the time I would travel to Galapagos and otherwise directly from Bogota. My planning goes something like this: - about 4 days in Quito - approx. 3 days in Tena - about 3 days in Baños - about 10 days different Galapagos Islands For the mainland of Ecuador I plan around 12 days and a budget of around € 750. For the Galapagos, I plan to fly around € 1,700. As a solo traveler, my travel budget is always quite high, as I also treat myself to a few luxuries, such as domestic flights, visits to restaurants and single rooms with private bathrooms in hostels. I am therefore planning around € 60 per day for Colombia and mainland Ecuador and € 120 for the Galapagos. But if we share accommodation or if you look for a bed in the dorm, then the costs would be a lot lower. But I prefer to plan more and in the end I am happy about the remaining budget;) Phew, that was a lot of text now. I am happy if you are interested in the trip or some parts of it and want to be part of it ... Just write to me and we will coordinate!

Cartagena

Day 1-5

Cartagena is located on the Caribbean coast and has a lot to offer. A colorful and beautiful city and beautiful beaches nearby. You can also get on a little later, but since I'm from Panama on a sailing trip, I need a few days in one place :)

Day 5-10

Santa Marta

Day 5-10

Santa Marta is the perfect starting point for trips to the Tayrona National Park. There you can see ruins, jungles and wonderful beaches. But also in Santa Marta you can enjoy the beaches and go diving, among other things.

Day 10-15

Medellin

Day 10-15

Medellin is a varied and very safe city in Colombia. You can explore the city, restaurants and culture for a few days. You can also plan a trip to the surrounding area, for example to Guatape.

Day 15-18

Bogota

Day 15-18

There is also a lot to discover and do in the beautiful and safe Candelaria district in Bogota. From here the plane either goes to Quito and the part to mainland Ecuador starts or we fly directly to Galapagos. Since Galapagos may not be on your wish-list and is too expensive, I can do it alone at the end of the trip.

Day 18-19

Quito

Day 18-19

Arrive in Quito and organize yourself. From there it goes on towards the rainforest. The bus connections should be very good and luckily you are never on the road from here forever.

Again

Day 19-22

Text has been stolen: Tena is a perfect starting point for guided tours in the Amazon rainforest. Tena offers bathing opportunities in idyllic bathing bays or rafting tours. Many indigenous communities live in the rainforest. The biodiversity in fauna and flora is incomparable here.

Day 22-25

Banos

Day 22-25

Text has been stolen: The city is surrounded by two forms of vegetation, on one side the rainforest and on the other the highlands. A lot of sugar cane is grown in the surrounding area, from which schnapps and other delicacies are made. You can here, among other things. Do canopy tours, visit waterfalls or bathe in the hot thermal springs.

Day 25-29

Quito

Day 25-29

Here we have time to visit Quito and the surrounding area again. If you like hiking, climbing Cotopaxi would also be an option. But you can also visit the surrounding area. Either our trip ends here or we continue to the Galapagos.

Day 29-40

Galápagos Islands

Day 29-40

Optional: Galapagos is known for its unique animal kingdom. I'm looking forward to the colorful water birds and the species-rich underwater world. Diving and snorkeling with penguins and seals are the order of the day here. It will be a once in a lifetime experience.

In addition to the trip itself, I love planning the trip in advance and creating photo bookings afterwards. I like to travel alone as well as self-organized in a small group. I always have a plan in my pocket, but I usually discover the highlights in my so-called buffer times, where you end up where curiosity spontaneously drifts. I am reliable, curious, open to the world and people, honest, uncomplicated and organized. Company is great on road trips, but I am still able to go out to eat or see something when it suits me. I have always put together my own travel routes through Chile, Israel & Jordan, South Africa (Cape Region), Cuba, Uruguay and three times the USA, so that I could achieve the right amount of freedom, individuality and cost savings.
