The Native Expedition - Sierra Nevada (3 days Awesomes view points)

This is a tourist route maintained by a group of peasant families that have decided to put aside some activities with a negative impact on the environment (such as intensive agriculture and livestock) and start working with tourism. These families saw that the place that has always been their home was a paradise of landscapes, biodiversity and cultural experiences. And now they want to show this paradise, and everything it offers, to the world. This is a route that is outside the other tourist routes saturated with visitors, is full of wildlife, ancient forests, abundance of water, impressive waterfalls, friendly people and breathtaking views of the mountains and the Caribbean Sea.

My name is Luis, I am an Economist and I worked as a consultant for more than 20 years. I changed my work for my passion: sailing and enjoying nature, especially the sea. I sail since I am 10 days old, it is a passion inherited from my family and I love to transmit my knowledge of the sea and navigation to the people who accompany me. Since I arrived in Colombia with my family I have had the opportunity to know the Tayrona in a way that people do not know, from the sea. It is a unique experience that we want to teach you. We are bilingual (Spanish and English) and we love to talk and tell local anecdotes. Hannah and I will take you to live an unforgettable day.I am a yacht skipper and I have all the necessary courses to guarantee you safety and enjoyment of experience.
