About this trip

Let Tour Amor introduce you to Cali, Colombia, the Salsa Capital of the World!  While most people only hear about Cartagena, Medellin, and Bogota, Cali is actually the third most populated city in the country and it is said to have the second largest population of African descendants in all of Latin America! 


Join us in 2020 to embark on an extraordinary journey to Colombia to learn about the heritage & traditions of African Descendants of Colombia. Explore and learn the history and present day expressions from the Pacific Coast to the Caribbean. Our trip begins in Cali. We will explore the rich history of this vibrant city. We will also attend Petronio Alvarez Music Festival, entering its 24th year! Become immersed in the rhythms of Pacific Colombia. Rhythms such as the marimba and chirimia are amazingly vibrant and mesmerizing. 


As a transition from the hustle and bustle of Cali City, we will make an overnight trip to San Andrés Island!  San Andrés is a Colombian island in the Caribbean Sea, off the coast of Nicaragua. It’s known for its coral reefs and reggae music. Enjoy a palm-lined promenade, unspoiled white-sand beaches, crystal clear waters and smooth Caribbean sounds!

- Travel to Cali and explore the vibrant capital of Valle de Cauca

- Immerse yourself in Afro-Colombian culture while attending Festival del Pacifico Petronio    Alvarez among nearly 100,000 people truly living it up and having the time of their life.

Tour Amor curates small group tours for the individual.. Our focus is to introduce travelers to rich Afro-Latin American culture and experiences. We don’t simply visit a destination. Rather, we immerse ourselves into the culture and embolden the local creatives. We sit with locals, eat with locals, learn alongside and even dance with them! This offers our travelers a one-of-a-kind authentic experience. Our offering is for the solo traveler, independent, and adventurous, who enjoys the camaraderie of a group experience!

Reviews

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Tour Amor is a class act. We enjoyed this wine tour so much that we decided to book trips to Colombia and Cuba with them in 2020.
