I am a beginner climber, but I always felt included in the daily plans, and safe wherever we went climbing. I am a yoga teacher, so it was a real treat to start each day with a calming practice up in the yoga house, which looks out over the rocks and the canyon below with a million dollar view. San Gil rafting was also super cool. The guides at Colombia Rafting are very safety conscious.

Day 1: Arrive in Bogotá
Day 1: All guests arrive in Bogotá. Your guide and the owner of South America Rocks, Will, will collect you from airport and transfer to our hotel. We’ll then enjoy a welcome dinner where we will get to know each other a bit and get excited for the trip ahead.
Day 2: Bucaramanga > La Mojarra > First climbs!
Day 2: It’s an early morning for us as we hop on a flight to Bucaramanga, Santander. We’ll snag a big breakfast at the airport at a typical Colombian breakfast spot, CREPES and WAFFLES, so that we are fuelled for the adventure to our climbing spot. Once we land, we’ll take a private shuttle from airport to Refugio La Roca and La Mojarra climbing area. After checking in, grab a quick lunch so we can maximize the rest of our day climbing! This half-day of climbing will allow you to get a feel for the rocks. Once the sun starts setting, we’ll get back to the hotel (which is right next door!) so that we can properly celebrate our first climbs with a cold beer and a delicious dinner from the refuge restaurant.
Days 3 & 4: Scaling the La Mojarra cliffs
Rise and shine! Coffee is served early so we can take advantage of the whole day. Take a slower morning and enjoy the opportunity to stretch out in the serene yoga house and enjoy the million dollar view. After a big tasty breakfast including fresh tropical fruit to get us enough energy for the morning, we’ll finalize a plan for which climbs we want to tackle, and head out for a full day of sending steep, beautiful lines. We highly recommend packing some snacks or a bag lunch to keep you going all afternoon. After a full day of enjoying the gorgeous Colombian countryside, we’ll return to the bar/restaurant at the end of the day to crack a beer and swap stories. Hit the showers before dinner and fill up with a hearty meal to send your way to slumberland content.
Day 5: Last day at La Mojarra
Wake up and enjoy your final day at La Mojarra at your own pace. The rocks await those who are keen to get after it early. If you prefer a more casual morning, no worries — there is zero pressure since the rocks are only a 5-minute walk down the hill whenever you are ready. Keep in mind that we’ll call it a day around mid-afternoon, so make sure your last climb is a beauty! We’ll grab a quick shower, pack up our equipment, and say our goodbyes to our friendly and wonderful hosts at La Roca. Tips are appreciated if you enjoyed your stay.
We will make an intriguing cultural stop to eat at the regional market on the way back to the airport. That evening, we’ll check in at our Bogotá hotel and get ready to go out for an unforgettable dining experience at Andres Carne de Res. Expect live music, colourful costumes, and surprise performances from the enthusiastic staff. There’s nothing else like it anywhere on Earth. It’s time to drink up, celebrate the tour with your new friends, and then hit the dance floor for a proper goodbye party.
Day 6: Time to head home
In the morning, we’ll all get together for brunch to share one last meal, memories, photos, and contact information with your new friends. The tour is officially over as of check-out time at the hotel, but we will arrange transportation to the airport for you and assist in the next steps in your journey to make ensure the rest of your trip goes smoothly.
If you’re interested in prolonging your stay in Colombia, we can help you add on a package to climb another classic Colombian destination, Seusca. Just let us know upon your inquiry, and we’ll get you set up.

See what our clients say about this tour
The whole trip was great. The rafting tour in San Gil on the Rio Suarez with Colombia Rafting was wild and exciting and we celebrated with the biggest burgers ever at Gringo Mike’s later that night. I had a great time working with Will on this South America Rocks climbing adventure.
The Colombia tour with South America Rocks was definitely a great experience! Normally organized tours is not my style of traveling so I was hesitant to sign up but I’m so happy I did. The climbing was excellent! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Having never really done a tour of any kind in the past, I was surprised at how organic everything felt. There was always an opportunity to detour, try new food, check out cultural things, relax, be lazy, etc. but somehow we still achieved all our goals. Having the opportunity to do some pretty hard climbing was great.
