Ciudad Perdida Trek: A Comprehensive List of Tips for 2020

the famous Ciudad Perdida archaeological site

We read a ton of blog posts prior to our Ciudad Perdida, Colombia trek in December 2019. Knowing what to expect and what to bring on the Ciudad Perdida trek (also known as the Lost City trek) was important to us. We were grateful for a lot of the insights, but we found that a lot of the top-ranking posts on the subject are a little outdated, causing us to bring some items we hadn’t needed to.

Cartagena with Kids

We didn’t have a lot of time in Cartagena, but we are so glad we had as much time as we did in Getsemani. Getsemani is a vibrant, up-and-coming neighborhood, making it an excellent base for your visit to Cartagena with kids. It’s just an easy 5-minute walk through the colorful market stalls of Parque Centenario to the world-famous Cartagena Old Town.

Though I love traveling with kids, I’m the first to say that at times I do miss the days of traveling pre-kids. Don’t get me wrong, I love having them there and wouldn’t have it any other way, but there are usually things we’d like to do that are impossible with kids. I do not often like to admit that things are “impossible” with kids, but hiking Angels Landing definitely falls into that category.

Ireland Road Trip Itinerary with Kids

The land of leprechauns, four leaf clovers and rainbows, Ireland is an amazing place for a family vacation. Unfortunately, we didn’t find any leprechauns or four leaf clovers and by the end of our 3 week Ireland road trip with kids, we had only seen one rainbow. While we expected the first two, the third one was a bit of a surprise, but regardless, we still found Ireland to be a phenomenal place to travel with kids.
