On the hunt for the adventure of a lifetime? Ciudad Perdida (literally 'Lost City') disappeared into the jungle around the time of the Spanish Conquest and was only 'discovered' again in the 1970s. Deep in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains, it remains accessible only by foot. You'll trek across snaking rivers and alongside waterfalls for five days as you make your way to the ancient archaeological site, founded by the Tayrona in the 9th century. This outdoor adventure can be tough — you'll walk up to several hours each day — but worth it for the feeling you get as the lost city emerges from the mountain foliage.
