This tour visits the best birding spots in one of Colombia’s most important endemism-rich regions, the Mid-Magdalena Valley. This area, located in the middle of the Magdalena river basin and between the Eastern and Central Cordilleras, is a biodiversity hotspot. Two vital ecosystems, the tropical dry forest, and the tropical humid forest meet here.
This tour is an excellent complement to our Andes Essentials birding trip, with which it connects in Medelln and continues south. It also connects well with birding trips to the Caribbean Coast and the Santa Marta Mountains, allowing the birder to amass an impressive list of around 500 species.
