    We have been traveling to Colombia since 2015. We stayed 2 months in Cartagena and enjoyed our time with Olinto.

Are these experiences a good fit for you?

Find out why!

After 2-3 days of beaches and walks in the historic center of Cartagena, you will probably get bored. Olinto offers you the opportunity to go off the beaten path to avoid the tourists and discover places that few travelers have the chance to see. Discover the culture of the inhabitants of Isla Barú, walk through a tropical dry forest in search of monkeys and petroglyphs or go along the water in a canoe to know the life of local fishers.

⭐ Olinto’s reviews ⭐

I'm not the only one to love Olinto's experiences.

  • Marina (Oli's girlfriend) was wonderful and very knowledgeable about trees, plants, etc. that we encountered. They provided walking sticks (which were needed at times) and binoculars to see monkeys and birds more closely. The meals were both delicious and authentic, and we stopped at a small family farm and were given fresh fruit toward the end of the hike. It was also a nice opportunity to drive outside of the city and see some of the more rural areas. I recommend this tour as a great way to see more of the area!

    I recently visited Cartagena with my family and went to the Montes de Maria, through the Jaguar’s Footprint Tour, where we had the most memorable time of our vacation. It was a wonderful time with amazing views, excellent guides, and a very safe, thrilling experience. Every place you look is special and it was great to be able to walk through such an amazing landscape. The nature hike is incredible and allows you to live unique and unforgettable experiences at every step you take. We closed our adventure connecting nature and culture with the famous Gaiteros the San Jacinto who made a great presentation and explain the different instruments and rhythms from the area. We had a wonderful time since Olinto and the musicians allowed us to play with them and experience by ourselves the music and local life.
