Adventures By Disney, the renowned provider of immersive guided tours, has once again expanded its portfolio of captivating destinations. Among its newest offerings is the enchanting country of Colombia. With its vibrant culture, rich history, stunning landscapes, and warm hospitality, Colombia is a perfect addition to the Adventures By Disney portfolio.

Activities incorporated new Colombia itinerary include:

  • Making arepas
  • Touring a Colombian coffee farm in the Coffee Region
  • Learning about the conservation of cotton-top tamarins on a trek through the dry forest near Proyecto Titi
  • Privately guided tours in Bogota
  • Snorkeling among the Rosario Islands, a collection of 27 islands home to more than 1,300 species of marine animals, vibrantly colored fish and plants.

Filmmakers Byron Howard and Jared Bush traveled to Colombia in 2018 to research Encanto. They remarked about their trip “Colombia is a crossroads of Latin America, and what we learned about family, tradition, music, food and dance were central to the development of the film. Our hope was always that ‘Encanto’ could celebrate just some of the many different people and cultures we experienced in Colombia – we are thrilled and touched that so many people have felt seen by the Madrigals’ story and now have this opportunity to experience its magic for themselves.”
