Stairs to the Lost CityGlad to hear you're off to the lost city, we had an amazing time and the entire hike was truly breath taking. We booked our trip through an agency in Santa Marta and it was 600,000ps per person for 4 nights/5 days. We felt very lucky with our guide who has spent 17 years as a guide and who also spent the previous 10 years working on the restoration of the lost city site itself. He was full of fantastic stories and information and was very professional. The food is decent, and the campsites are comfy for being in the jungle.

The mosquitos are voracious, the mud can be bad if it rains, and there are many river crossings making quick dry/waterproof, or just old and crappy clothes and shoes a must. We thankfully packed very light, and ended up hiking the majority of the way in our five-finger shoes which are like water shoes and could have done without our hiking boots. There are many natural pools along the way which are great for a swim to cool off and to wash clothes. We also brought some snacks, but there was more than enough food throughout the trip. Iodized water was also provided every morning to fill our water-bottles.

The Lost Tigers

A few years back, the Zoo of Barranquilla was touring the region and a truck carrying African tigers crashed. The tigers ran away and the locals say they managed to acclimatize and reproduce on the hospitable slopes of the Santa Marta mountains!

We could not find out if this is a legend or based on true events but hey what a story to tell. Watch out and let us know if you see the Santa Marta tigers.

Lost City - The Enemy!


You might think that Snakes, Pumas, Scorpions or even Tigers are the dangerous ones on your way to Ciudad Perdida, but don't be fooled... your worst enemy there will be... THE MOSQUITO!

In the Lost City, the vicious insect won't bite you, it will literally pump liters of blood out of your body, leave you 100s of stings that will wake you up in the middle of the night in terrible pain. And as a beautiful goodbye gift, your legs, feet and arms will wear ugly scars that will take weeks to go away.

So, as a flamethrower might be a little heavy to put in your bag, you will have to find the right repellent and never EVER leave parts of your body unprotected.
