About this tour:

This will be our Fourth successful and life-changing Carnaval Photo Expedition.
This tour is designed to highlight Colombia’s astounding history and cultural diversity, and we believe we have struck the perfect balance with this exhilarating itinerary: From exploring the streets rich in the history of colonial Cartagena and learning about Gabriel Garcia’s Magical Realism, to the folkloric celebrations of the second biggest carnival in the world in Barranquilla. With special media access to the Carnaval de Barranquilla activities, this tour is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal and enjoy a Carnaval that is of mythical proportions. Join us in a land where everyday life is very real but visitors can easily escape into a magical world as they explore the culture and natural richness the country has to offer.
