Es una caminata muy exigente pero vale la pena observar parte de la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, apreciar los escenarios naturales y siempre grabar la experiencia con una cámara fotográfica de buena calidad. Para la gente que le gusta el Trekking es ideal este tour.

C’est une expérience incroyable et vous ne serez à proximité d’aucun autre touriste. La randonnée était difficile mais en valait la peine. Les vues sont spectaculaires. Les familles d’accueil de la ferme sont incroyablement accueillantes. Ils vous acceptent comme un ami, pas comme un invité. Nous avions des mules pour la partie la plus difficile de porter nos sacs à dos, ce qui était super. C’est une véritable expérience non touristique.
