Best Remote Towns in Colombia
San Agustin, Minca and Sapzurro are destinations a little more difficult to access than the usual dots on the Colombian tourist circuit (specific info in upcoming blogs). This means that travellers you meet in these locations generally are a little more adventurous, determined to travel the extra mile to experience a somewhat more authentic regional Colombia.
The type of travellers who: journey on horseback through hills sprinkled with ancient archaeological artefacts, ride helmet free with luggage on the back of a motorbike through kilometres of rocky steep mountainous terrain, search for poisonous frogs in a riverbed and monkeys in a forest or brave a notorious boat ride from Turbo or Acandie to an outpost near the Panama border.
It makes a visit to these places all that more compelling!
