Sailing to Tayrona with Luis: Unique!

Sailing to Tayrona with Luis: Unique!

star-4.5
112
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.

Your Minca adventure includes a full-day tour, and you'll start at one of the Coffee Farms in the region. After learning about the production process, you'll visit the natural swimming hole of Pozo Azul for a refreshing dip, so bring your bathing suit! Enjoy some free time and have lunch before you embark on an afternoon walking tour of Minca's town center. Alternatively, visit the hummingbird balcony at Hotel Minca, where you can relax and observe the hundreds of hummingbirds that feed there.
