Participants must be in good physical condition!
The trekking can be done in 5 or 6 days, too.
Due to climate and/or occupancy, the exact routing and accommodation might be subject to change.
Travel with light luggage, that contains only the very necessary items! It might rain, so make sure to bring some plastic bags to keeo your stuff dry.
During the day you carry your own luggage. For a surcharge you can hire mules that carry heavier luggage, so you yourself carry only a light daypack.
Your excessive luggage is stored safely in Santa Marta or at the starting point of the trekking.
We recommend bringing the following:
2 pants, 4 cotton shirts, 2 short- or long-sleeved shirts, 1 light rain cover, 2 pairs comfortable hiking-/running shoes, toiletries, sun block, hat
Temperature during the trekking depends highly on altitude. In the lower regions (e.g. Camp Adán) there are between 25 – 35°C, in the higher ones depending on sunlight between 22 – 38°C. At night it usually cools down to about 13 – 20°C.
The rainiest months are April and May, October and November. Weather forecast in this region is not very accurate, so there won´t be continuous rain during rainy season, nor continuous sunshine during dry season. It usually is an alternation of sun and some rain.
Apart from the heat, please keep in mind the high humidity and mosquitos and other insects, that are simply inevitable in tropical regions.
