Colombia Gay Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive Bogota, Colombia
Hola! Welcome to Bogota.

This vibrant city has moved beyond its chequered past, and today offers a combination of bohemian cool, colourful graffiti and big city swagger. The city’s openly lesbian mayor is a sign of just how progressive this Latin American capital has become.

We start our tour with a welcome meeting at 5pm, followed by our official Welcome Dinner.

Hotel: Hilton Bogota Hotel, Bogota


Teatron gay club Bogota


Day 2 - Bogota, Colombia
Today we explore Bogotá and its Candelaria district and its colourful graffitied walls.

First, we make a stop that will literally take your breath away—we’ll take a cable car to the top of Monserrat Mountain, at 3,050m/10,000ft you can see the whole city unfold before you.

After taking the cable car back down we walk through the city center to explore La Candelaria, Colombia’s oldest neighborhood. This historic neighbourhood is also home to a university district, full of cobblestoned streets and centuries-old houses.

No visit would be complete without a stop at the spectacular Museo del Oro (Gold Museum), featuring the world´s biggest collection of pre-Columbian gold and other metals. After working up an appetite we’ll stop for a local lunch before heading back to our hotel.

This evening dinner is optional, and you also have the option to join our night-out excursion to explore the city’s vibrant gay scene including Theatron, a massive gay club with 13 (!) separate dance floors.

Cartagena, Colombia gay tour


Day 3 - From Bogota to Cartagena
After a leisurely breakfast we are off to Cartagena via a short flight, make sure to grab a quick snack or lunch while we’re at the airport.

The historic walled city of Cartagena has a laid-back Caribbean vibe, and is undoubtedly one of the jewels of Latin America. Upon arrival we will walk through the narrow cobblestone streets for a short guided city tour then grab a cocktail on the old city wall while watching the sunset.

Later in the evening you are free to take in the romantic and charming vibe on your own or join the group for an optional dinner.

The collection of 27 islands are protected national park and famous for their calm, teal waters with vibrant coral systems below the surface.

We’ll enjoy a delicious local lunch on one of these small islands before heading back to the city.

Later this evening you can join our optional cooking class. On this mouthwatering activity we’ll learn the secrets to Colombia’s unsung cuisine from a local chef. Then we’ll get to devour our own creations for dinner.

Medellin Colombia Gay Tour


Day 6 - From Cartagena to Medellin
Hola! Welcome to Medellín, aka The City of Eternal Spring. This verdant and mountainous city was once deemed the most notorious in Colombia. However, over the past few decades it has blossomed into a safe and innovative South American destination.

Our day will begin with a short flight from Cartagena to Medellín.

Upon arrival we’ll unpack in our luxe hotel then head out for a short walk to explore the chic neighbourhood of El Poblado.

Later this afternoon you have the option of taking a private salsa dancing class with a local gay instructor.

Day 7 - Guatape & Penon
Early this morning we head off to Guatapé and Peñon, about a 2.5 hour drive depending on traffic and road conditions.

Our first stop will be the Peñon Boulder, one of the most spectacular destinations in the surrounding area of Medellín. The 200-meter-high monolith can be climbed with a staircase of 740 steps. From the top we’ll enjoy breathtaking views over the stunning surroundings full of green mountains and blue lakes.

From there we head to an upscale glamping site to enjoy a delicious lunch alongside the lakes.

After lunch we’ll cruise on a motorboat for an hour to see the beautiful islands and the impressive country homes that line their coasts. Back on land, explore the pretty, cobblestoned streets and alleyways of Guatapé. Learn a bit about its history, reconstruction, its zocalo friezes, or visit some of the shops along the way.

Finally we head back to Medellín where you can join the group for an optional dinner, and perhaps check out El Poblado’s buzzing gay nightlife.

Day 8 - Medellin
After a leisurely breakfast we’ll enjoy a private city tour to learn more about the fascinating history of Medellín. The tour begins at the civic centre before winding through Parque de las Luces, Berrio and Botero.

After a traditional lunch we’ll get to know Medellin’s journey from dystopia to utopia as we tour the infamous Comuna 13—the most dangerous barrio in what was then the most dangerous city in the world. There you’ll interact with the community, learn how community members used graffiti to tell their stories, and witness firsthand how public projects like the mountainside escalators helped transform the neighbourhood.

To wrap up our unforgettable trip we’ve been invited to a secret dinner with the city’s LGBTQ+ movers and shakers—complete with a private chef!

Colombia Gay Travel


Trip Notes

Colombia Visa
A visa is not typically required for American, Australian, British and Canadian citizens travelling to Colombia for fewer than 90 days. There may be exceptions, and all visas are the responsibility of the traveller.

Culture Shock
Despite Colombia’s chequered past, the country has come into its own and is now on the path to peace. It is an upper-middle-income country with infrastructure, values, customs and standards that may differ from what you’re accustomed to. While the country has come a very long way you should still expect heavy traffic, along with unanticipated inconveniences such as road closures from time-to-time. Please note our transportation may be altered, and/or our itinerary changed, due to such circumstances beyond our control.

Local LGBT Scene
At least in comparison to neighboring Latin American countries, Colombia is generally gay-friendly. Homosexuality was legalized in 1981 and same-sex marriage was enacted in June 2013. Although the country maintains a laissez-faire attitude towards our community, we still recommend avoiding PDA.


Famous Cartagena


Due to its elevation, Bogota tends to be cool and overcast with temperatures rarely rising above 70°F. However, the rest of our journey will be in Carribean cities and steamy jungles. Expect hot, sunny days with the odd tropical shower.

Required Vaccinations
Based on entry requirements, some travellers may be required to show proof of a yellow fever vaccination. It is sometimes recommended (but not required) to have a yellow fever vaccination before entering Tayrona National Park. To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, you should consult your doctor or a travel medical clinic, as we cannot provide vaccination recommendations.


Gay Cartagena


In Colombia the power plugs and sockets are of type A and B. The standard voltage is 110 V and the standard frequency is 60 Hz.

We should have reliable Wi-Fi at most of our accommodations. In Tayrona, our hotel only has Wifi in the common area and it will likely be spotty at best—perhaps this is a great time to disconnect!

Travel Insurance
For everybody’s peace of mind, medical travel insurance is required on all Out Adventures tours. At a minimum, your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum medical coverage of US $200,000.


Caribbean Sea


Domestic Airfare
Flights are purchased for the entire group 90 days prior to departure, or when the trip is full. While we endeavor to book the best flight/s possible, we may have limited options at the time of purchase. If you are booking your trip less than 90 days to departure, there is a chance you be on a different flight than the rest of the group, and you will be notified in such an instance.

To keep things flexible, not all meals are included in the trip price. Although we typically dine together so that everybody can get a taste of everything, feel free to explore on your own... your guide will always have some restaurant recommendations.


Cartagena Rosario Islands gay trip


The local currency is the Colombian peso. Credit cards are accepted at hotels and upscale restaurants, but not for gratuities. We recommend carrying approximately $400 USD to be used only in the case of an emergency, or if your credit/ATM cards are placed on hold.

Gratuities for included meals are covered in the trip price. However, a tip to your Group Leader, housekeeping, and gratuities for optional meals and drinks at included dinners, optional activities, local day/city guides and drivers are not.
Please note: Credit cards are accepted at hotels and upscale restaurants, but we strongly recommend cash for gratuities.

What to bring
Most Out Adventures entail carrying your own luggage on occasion. And while you’ll never schlep far, things can quickly get costlier than a celebrity breakup if you don’t keep your baggage under 20kg/44lb thanks to costly surcharges on domestic flights. You should also bring something smaller for day trips to carry water, your camera, and any souvenirs you find along the way.
