Diverse cultures, colonial cities, exotic rainforest and some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. It’s time to meet the new, the real… Colombia!
Raw Travel invites viewers to forget everything they think they know about Colombia and join the Raw Travel team as they take the audience on a rare and unique look at the new, the real, Colombia.
The crew begins in the bustling, modern and sometimes chaotic capital city of Bogota. Then they head down to Paisa country and Medellin, one of Colombia’s friendliest cities. Robert joins the locals to sample the legendary nightlife, take in an underground music festival and find out why Medellin is considered one of Latin America’s most progressive cities.
Next the crew heads to the mountainous, green and picturesque Antioquia region where they visit a working coffee plantation and experience some eco-friendly pampering with naturally occurring thermal and mud baths at the spas of San Vicente.
Then it’s off to the coast where they walk the cobblestone streets of the historic, colorful colonial tourist haven of Cartagena. From there Raw Travel takes viewers off the beaten path for a rare look at San Basilio de Palenque. This small Afro-Caribbean village first began as a protected refuge for runaway slaves and a town where residents still speak a unique African dialect today.
Next, it’s time to relax and get in touch with the abundant natural beauty of Colombia as the crew heads to Tayrona National Park to find some of the most isolated and beautiful beaches around. Here, Robert takes part in a traditional, spiritual cleansing from the local native Indians.
Finally, it’s off to the amazing and wild Amazon. The crew heads up the river to the to the tiny, eco-friendly hamlet of Puerto Nariño to give viewers a taste of indigenous life in the Amazon and unveils why protecting this ancient way of life is so important to the entire planet.
