We will visit the Kogui indigenous community of Tungueka. To get there we will walk two hours. This is a settlement of more than 100 Kogi families. Here we can learn more about their customs and traditions. Afterwards we will enjoy a bath in a beautiful well very close to the settlement.

We will return for lunch in Río Ancho. And then we will travel to the Don Diego River for a relaxing tubing trip along this beautiful river to the mouth of the sea. With luck, you will be able to observe howler monkeys and various birds, in the estuary you will be entranced by the meeting of the Don Diego River with the sea in a wonderful landscape.


We will take a 1-hour trip to Río Ancho where we will take a walk to the Kogui community of Tungueka. We will visit the community to learn about its traditional buildings, geographical organization, and some of its traditions.

To finish the tour you will descend the Don Diego River in tubing or float where you can have contact with nature and be dazzled by the silence and tranquility of the landscapes.

We will return to the hotel around 5:30 p.m.
