San Cipriano - Adventure Tour Cali - Colombia

San Cipriano is fast becoming a must-do activity for adventure-seeking travelers. At Córdoba, two hours from Cali on the road to Buenaventura, there are train tracks where trains no longer run. Due to this, the town of San Cipriano has effectively been cut off from civilization. Nonetheless, the locals have devised an ingenious way of attracting visitors: They have created their own carts that travel the train tracks. You can choose to ride either a hand-pumped cart or one attached to a motorcycle. Hop aboard and take in the stunning, lush scenery on the way to San Cipriano.

When you finally arrive to San Cipriano, you’ll find a very small town with rope bridges, a few streets and a beautiful river. The river has some rapids that make it a fun place to hire inner tubes and spend an afternoon drifting down the river.
