Hike to the Alternative Lost City, Indigenous path to Minca, Native Village in Tayrona Area

The Tayrona culture, which existed in ancient times, has left behind numerous remains that help us understand it better. The recent discover of several archaeological ruins commonly called Lost City in the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, offers an opportunity to explore this civilization as an alternative to the popular Ciudad Perdida tour. If you’re short on time or prefer something more convenient, we have the information you need to consider this as an option instead of the Lost City trek.

Excellent ! I can only recommend. We Chose the 3 days Hike in to the archeological site like the lost city then Tayrona and Minca with Adrian and Jose. We were in a small group (4 plus the two of us). The experience was incredible and their professionalism is impeccable.

Absolute must to do ! The landscape are amazing, the indigenous people introduced us to their culture and belief. The alternative lost city is a bit smaller like the original one (we ve been to both) but the structure and the historical interest is pretty much the same. You may book eye closed !

Such a great moment. Honestly I am not so much of a hike person but my bf really wanted to do it. The climate is hot and humid but overall, it was not as hard as I expected. It is an adventure definitely and require a bit of preparation (The guides will let you know all the necessary stuff you should bring) The lost city alternative is worth it and the point of views in Minca is stunning.

The best experience we've had in Santa Marta ! Incredible day hiking in the jungle. We ve learned a lot about the indigenous Kogy. The archeological site of the lost city is probably the best of the 3 spots we visited but they re all interesting.

We ve had an unforgettable time with. I personally preferred the Tayrona area and the white sand beaches, but my friend loved the alternative lost city. A good mix of culture and relaxing time. It s not a hard treck (3/4 hours hike per day) with plenty of fruit and talks with the guides who will gladly tell you about their ancestral cultures
