Today you will be picked up at your accommodation and transferred to El Mamey where you will begin your hike through the jungle and start enjoying the diversity of fauna and flora of the road.
Trek to Camp 1 (L/D)
On the first day, make your way to the meeting point to start an adventurous 2 1/2 hour drive by 4x4 to the small countryside town of Mamey. After having lunch, we'll set off for a hike taking about 3 hours to reach our first sleeping area. The overall climb on the first day is about 520 meters with regular snack breaks and a hearty meal by candlelight when you reach your destination. Teyuna is a sacred place for Native people, please remember to respect the past and the customs of the town: Respect the privacy of farmers and Indians, do not come into their houses or take pictures without asking them first. Take into account that this is a raining, humid and temperate zone with cold nights between 18° and 22°. Please take just the essential stuff; the weight of your backpack is an important factor for your comfort. Bring all the garbage back to Santa Marta; the Park and the zone don't have garbage recollection service. Inside the park there is no signal for mobile phones, so let your family and friends know that you will have communication once you get back to Santa Marta. Please follow the guide's recommendation.
