I had the chance to go on a 1-day trekk with Leo to Minca
It was spectacular. He was so knowledgeable of the landscape, the birds, the animals, the trees - I had never been exposed or had any previous knowledge of any of these and he explained them to me in such a great manner. Leo is funny and he will go at your pace. Lunch was amazing! the views spectacular. And when I felt like I couldn't go any longer - Leo encouraged me and took his time with me. I'd truly recommend this trek. Wish I'd have more time and could do more. I did this tour in Spanish as Spanish is my 1st language, but wanted to share my experience with all :)

Lovely hike with a great guide

We hiked with Leo in two days from Santa Marta to Minca. It was a great, tough hike with lot's of birds, lush vegetation, and even some unexpected pre-columbian ruins to discover. Leo is very knowledgeable, a gentle guide, who made us feel comfortable and safe throughout the journey. Highly recommended!
