All will arrive in Cartagena at the Rafael Núñez International Airport.

We like to have a little fun as well, so put your game face on as we participate in a few icebreaker games and activities. In the evening, we’ll do some optional exploring, as we barhop through the city and really make our first night in Colombia count.
Enjoy a full day exploring the beautiful Pink Sea of Galerazamba and the Totumo Volcano. Once you arrive at the Pink Sea, you’ll immediately notice that it’s a beautiful wonder of nature, holding an intense pink color within its landscape. It is the perfect location to get some amazing photos for the ‘gram. We will then journey to the Totumo Volcano and have the option of bathing in the mud to give your skin a refresh. Lunch is provided for this day of adventuring. At the end of the day you’ll have a little free time to do as you please. You’re free to explore on your own or catch up on some Z’s. `
Day three will be full of exploration, as we take a visit to the African village of San Basilio De Palenque. We will be learning about the village's music, the Spanish language, and the rich Colombian culture during this tour. We will also learn about Colombian food, as a traditional Colombian lunch will be provided. We will take a break through the middle of the day and come back together under the stars to enjoy an ALL WHITE dinner cruise on Cartagena’s Bay. As we sail around the bay, you will dine on a 3-course meal, and of course a few good drinks to keep you hydrated as well.
You will start this Friday off on your own, as we give you time to yourselves to relax and explore. In the late afternoon, we’ll pick up and get into the group activities for the day. Keep reading if you’re interested (wink wink). If you know anything about Curate Life, you should know that we always find the tasty food! We will be cruising around Cartagena on a food walking tour, learning all about the cities culture, and of course its food. You must come hungry and be prepared to try many diverse types of Colombian eats. After we have dined our way through the city, you will be able to dance off the meal at night, as we go on a salsa dancing tour. Not only will you learn how to Salsa, but you will experience Cartagena’s party scene as we float around numerous dance bars.
Day five is guaranteed to be litty! We are going to spend the last day partying at the Cartagena Beach Club on Rosario Island. We’ll arrive at the exclusive beach club via speedboat, dressed in REDS, BLUES OR YELLOWS, to enjoy cocktails and the best music right on the beach. Let’s toast to the good life! By evening we will change into our SHADES OF BROWNS & NUDES and we’ll dine on our last meal with great food that brings us all together. Our night will be capped with a club outing to seal the deal on a great experience!
You’ll wake up not wanting to leave, but we all know good things do come to an end. On our final day, we will say our goodbyes and prepare to head back to our various home destinations. The beauty of this final day is that is doesn’t have to be our last goodbye. There are plenty of upcoming trips you’ll be able to join us on next.
