This experience of approaching  to the Arhuaca culture begins in Palomino where the group will meet their guide to start a walk of approximately 2 hours through an ecological path, crossing the Palomino River (on foot) until reaching Seydukwa. Upon arrival we will be welcomed to rest, hydrate and then have lunch (typical local food).


After lunch we will start the tour where we will appreciate and learn about the indigenous construction style and about the cultivation and collection of organic cocoa. This tour continues with the explanation of the symbology of the coca leaf for culture and the process in which sugarcane is worked with sugar mill to obtain panela or cane honey.

At the end of the tour you will have free time to rest in the hammocks or take a bath in the Palomino River. At 3:00 pm the walk back to Palomino begins, there is the possibility of tubing back (not included). The tour ends in Palomino at the same place where it started, around 5:00 pm
